Gash Vein Silica Quartz Various Sizes - $1 (Knoxville AR)

1234567891011
These specimens were collected from the Ouachita Mountains Quartz Belt, near Hot Springs Ar. These are not Quartz crystals, but formed in the same area. These type of Quartz formations were made by pressure from igneous activity deep below the earth's surface, around 200 million years ago. Underground earthquakes, forced the silica-saturated hot water solution into cracks and fissures (Gash's) located in the Ouachita rocks. The silica-saturated hot water then quickly solidified, to deposit quartz known as fracture-filling 'gash' veins of Quartz. Millions of years of upheaval then brought the quartz to the surface. I have a very nice collection of these, and I'll be posting different pieces as I have time. You can call or text me at show contact info
