Cebeci, Ahmet (1944) A Study of Quartz Deposits Near Highway Highlands, Los Angeles County, California. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/MFZR-NZ87.


Several quartz deposits in the vicinity of Highlands, Los Angeles County, California, were studied in the field, and their relations to the adjoining formations were determined. Oriented specimens were taken from the area, and twenty thin sections were made from them. By the study of these thin sections and the field work, it was determined that these quartz deposits were quartzites. Metamorphism was dynamic, and the intensity of it was high.
