White limestone predominates in the island, with considerable [[strikethrough]] quantit [[/strikethrough]] areas of alluvium (old) and conglomerates. Practically no rocks older than Cretaceous occur at surface, though there are Paleozoic granophyres, serpentine, schists, amphibolites and marbles. Some metamorphics were formed in early Cretaceous. The Blue Mountain Series is Eocene, and consists of coarse conglomerates (derived) from igneous material), sandstones, shales, volcanic lavas, and tuffs. The mountains north of Kingston are chiefly formed by a large laccolite of porphyry. Throughout the island are small exposures of a richly fossiliferous Yellow Limestone (the Cambridge Beds. The Blue Mountain Series is considerably folded by Tertiary
