The mineral locality reported here is of interest because it contains a large supply of the scapolite mineral dipyrite in an unaltered condition and because the paragenesis of this mineral and associated contact metamorphic minerals is fairly plain. Incidentally the locality constitutes the first recorded occurrence of dipyrite in Texas though collections at the University of Texas contain specimens of scapolites said to be from Texas, but with localities only vaguely given.
