Springettsbury Township - The Stony Brook dike is one of the best examples of a diabase intrusion into older rock.  The dike measures about 10-feet wide here, where it intrudes the limestone of the Conestoga Formation of possible Ordovician age.  The dike cut through the limestone during the Triassic Period during the rifting apart of Pangaea.
