Kentucky Mines & Minerals

A Location Guide for Rock Hounds in the United States



Minerals are the major contribution to the Blue Grass State’s economy. These

consist mainly of coal, limestone, fluorspar, rock asphalt, gravel and sand-all products of

sedimentation. The state is part of a very old land surface, lying within the eastern uplifted

Appalachian Plateau and the westerly Interior Low Plateaus. During most of the Paleozoic

and Mesozoic eras, Kentucky lay beneath the sea, and thus its rock formations are

predominantly sedimentary shales, sandstones, limestone, etc., with almost no igneous or

metamorphic intrusions.


The rugged hardwood timbered Cumberland Plateau that comprises part of eastern Kentucky rises to 4,100’ in Big Black Mt., highest of numerous peaks that straddle the Virginia border in the range of the same name along the boundaries of Bell and Harlan counties. This plateau breaks toward the Bluegrass heartland in the Pottsville Escarpment,

marked by a belt of rounded shale hills known as the Knobs. To the west in the low Mississippian Plateau, a region of rocky hillsides denotes an extensive area of underground streams which have carved such great caverns as the famed Mammoth Caves in the limestone sub-strata.


The region lying east of the Tennessee River emerged from the Paleozoic seas toward the close of the Mississippian period some 340 million years ago. Outcropping rocks in this region range from middle Ordovician to the Pennsylvanian, containing few collectable minerals and gemstones but great amounts of fossils. Nevertheless, wherever the Fort

Payne and Warsaw formations of the Mississippian Period outcrop, gemmy geodes appear abundantly. These interesting nodules are found in many sizes from walnut to beach ball. Some contain beautifully banded chalcedony, while others have interiors lined with crystals of Calcite, Celestite, Fluorite, Goethite, Pyrite, and Quartz. The most productive area for

geodes surrounds the Bluegrass, southward into Tennessee. Throughout this considerable region, investigation of creek and stream beds & banks, runs & rills, rd. and RR cut banks, excavations, almost always reveals an abundant supply of geodes.


The lands lying west of the Tennessee R., known as the Purchase Region, did not emerge from the sea until Tertiary times only 40 to 50 million years ago. This region remained for long ages as the head of a great embayment extending north from the ancient Gulf of Mexico, thus receiving largely estuarine deposits. Cretaceous and Tertiary formation

are developed principally in the Jackson Purchase area, while Pleistocene alluvium occurs plentifully in the valleys of western Kentucky and along the Ohio R. and its tributaries.
