The Connecticut Valley belt of west-central Massachusetts includes metamorphosed Silurian and Lower Devonian strata between a major regional unconformity and "surface of structural disharmony' along the east side of the Berkshire Hills, on the west, and a north-south line on the east side of the first outcrop belt of Littleton Formation east of the main body of Monson Gneiss. Silurian strata include the Russell Mountain Formation (unit Sr), the Clough Quartzite (unit Sc), and the Fitch Formation (unit Sf). Lower Devonian strata of the belt are divided into five formations of primarily metasedimentary rocks and one localized thin meta-volcanic unit. -from Authors
