Pyrite framboid diameters were examined in 31 samples taken from 2 Marcellus Shale cores recovered from Greene County, Pennsylvania, and Upshur County, West Virginia (USA). Analysis of framboid diameters in those samples from the more proximally located Upshur County core suggests that anoxic to anoxic-euxinic conditions persisted during accumulation of the transgressive-regressive cycle (MSS1) that comprises the Union Springs Member of the Marcellus Shale, with intermittent episodes of dysoxia. An increased abundance of large framboids documented from the overlying transgressive-regressive cycle (MSS2), which comprises the bulk of the Oatka Creek Member of the Marcellus Shale, indicates improved bottom-water conditions.
