Celebrating Sillimanite, the Delaware State Mineral ...

Sillimanite is a metamorphic mineral comprised of aluminum silicate. In Delaware, it is found in and around Hoopes Reservoir and Brandywine Springs. The Brandywine Springs boulders are remarkable for their size and purity. Sillimanite was discovered by scientist Benjamin Silliman (December 4, 1816-January 14, 1885) and named for him in 1850 ...
