Geology of the Albany West quadrangle, Georgia

The Albany West Quadrangle is near the east edge of the Dougherty Plain of southwestern Georgia, an area of karst topography. The Ocala limestone (uppoer Eocene) underlies the quadrangle and crops out along the Flint River and its tributaries and sinkholes. Sinkholes of two ages are developed in the limestone. A gravelly argillaceous sand of Pliocene(?) age is exposed in ditches near the Flint ...

This Rare Calcite Crystal Formation Was Found in a CAVE in ...

Florida is relatively young, geologically speaking. The oldest surface exposures are around 45 million years old. This would be the Ocala Limestone. In certain areas there are caves that form in the Ocala Limestone, and in those caves there will occasionally be incredible calcite crystal growths. In this video I'm exploring the banks of a river that have some of these caves, and every once in ...

Unconformably overlying the Ocala is the Suwannee Limestone of the Oligocene Epoch. It is a pale orange, finely crystalline, thin bedded, soft to hard, dense, porous, very fossiliferous limestone. The lithification varies from soft and friable to well indurated, highly recrystallized.

The Late Eocene Ocala Limestone is part of the Upper Floridan Aquifer, and in west-central Florida the Ocala forms a subregional semi-confining unit that separates underlying and overlying highly transmissive zones. In portions of the same area, the lower half of the Ocala is dolomitized and fractures are observed in cores. Where present, the fractures should locally enhance the hydraulic ...

The Ocala Limestone consists of nearly pure limestones and occasional dolostones. It can be subdivided into lower and upper facies on the basis of lithology. The lower member is composed of a white to cream-colored, fine to medium grained, poorly to moderately indurated, very fossiliferous limestone (grainstone and packstone).

Ocala Limestone. A thin erosional remnant of the shallow marine Suwannee Limestone overlies the Ocala Limestone, and permeability seems to be comparatively low because moldic poros-ity is poorly connected.

the Ocala limestone and is generally a creamy-white to brown, soft, granular limestone containing abundant Foraminifera and other fossils. The Suwannee limestone is about 150 to 200 feet thick in southern Hillsborough County. The Tampa limestone of Miocene age, which overlies the Suwannee, is also a very productive source of artesian water.

FLORIDA'S ROCKS KEY LARGO LIMESTONE: CHERT

OCALA LIMESTONE: Generally the Ocala Limestone is soft and porous, but in places it is hard and dense because of cementation of the particles by crystalline calcite. The deposit is remarkable in that it is composed of almost pure calcium carbonate: shells of sea creatures and very tiny chalky particles. Ocala Limestone

Ocala Limestone - Fossil Hunting Trips - The Fossil Forum
