APHRODITE  as found on TUXEKAN ISLAND

 

Aphrodite as found

First discovery

Loose boulders in the duff

Location:  This marble comes from Tuxekan Island, Alaska.  About half the size of an average American county, Tuxekan Island is one of the thousand or so islands that comprise the Alexander Archipelago, the island chain that lies off southeast Alaska's panhandle.  Tuxekan Island has no human population.  Bears are numerous.  Aphrodite Marble is accessible only by boat.  A landing craft is used to transport equipment to Tuxekan Island.  A barge carries quarried stone from the island.  The marble deposit is within the Tongass National Forest and is worked under U.S. Forest Service guidelines.
