Quartz Crystals I found while hiking the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. This chunk of quartz crystals was laying on top of the ground. One of my neighbors told me that you don’t usually find them like this. It was on the side of a hill so I’m wondering if rain could have uncovered it.
I read that Geologists say that Arkansas and Brazil have the best quality quartz on Earth.
