ANATASE   N. Sugarloaf Mtn., Bethlehem, NH
0.3 mm blocky anatase crystal on albite

Species:           ANATASE
Locality:          N. Sugarloaf Mtn., Bethlehem, NH
Specimen Size: 0.3 mm blocky anatase crystal on albite
Field Collected: Tom Mortimer
Catalog No.: u271
Notes: Whittemore and Janules stated in their Jul/Aug 1990 Rocks & Minerals article on this North Sugarloaf locality: "Black, lustrous, blocky, almost cubic crystals (associated with albite and microcline) that have been observed in a few samples have also been identified as anatase by X-ray defraction studies." This is a typical example of that habit.

Species:           ANATASE
Locality:          Mine Falls Park, Nashua, NH

ANATASE   Junct. Rt. 101A - Exit 8 (Hampton Inn site - former Ground Round), blasted ledge, Nashua, NH
Two pale tan anatase crystals in quartz crystal seam. Largest crystal is 0.7 mm.

Species:           ANATASE
Locality:          Junct. Rt. 101A - Exit 8 (Hampton Inn site - former Ground Round), blasted ledge, Nashua, NH
Specimen Size: Two pale tan anatase crystals in quartz crystal seam. Largest crystal is 0.7 mm.
Field Collected: Tom Mortimer (Aug 2008)
Catalog No.: u916
Notes: This 4 cm specimen contains a half-dozen anatase crystals. Of the many quartz seam specimens brought home, this was the only one found with anatase. These anatase crystals contrast poorly with the matrix. They are difficult to spot. Field collected specimens must be thoroughly cleaned prior to looking for the anatase crystals. The host phyllite rock formation at this site is the same to be seen at other near-by anatase localities, namely Mine Falls Park and the Audley Quarry.
