Partridge Island Geology
The geology of Partridge Island is amazing. The volcanic rocks contain minerals that can be found in similar rocks on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean including amethyst, agate, and zeolites. The Island provided nearly every type of rock and mineral that the Mi’kmaq used in the past–and many we use today. The shoreline west of Partridge Island is also an excellent place to find fossils (although these must not be removed from their original locations per Nova Scotia Provincial legislation).
