Quartz Points Bed 1.8ft

£2,892.00 GBP

Monumental Quartz mineral crystal bed of huge proportions, displaying large points in clusters, excellent clarity to the points, as seen in the images above. The rare sized crystal bed is displaying all the sort-after attributes from one of the most important Quartz locations. The pre-eminent group of mines of this location have produced crystal beds which now reside in museum collections around the world. This crystal bed is from that stable and is an opportunity to own a specimen which is part of that North American specimen mineral history.

An example of the finest museum quality cluster bed of Quartz points. The clarity of these crystal points is remarkable. In prehistory milky Quartz through the action of deposition of minerals through the hot water which was laid down in the region forming the mountain ranges of North America. This outstanding crystal bed is typical of the best the region has to offer. Quartz in the Ouachita Mountains laid down in the late Palaeozoic era, between two hundred and eighty to two hundred and forty-five million years ago, created the Quartz vein near Little Rock, Arkansas, which is around sixty feet thick and runs from Oklahoma to Arkansas. Quartz and other mineral veins deposited from hot water in the closing stages of mountain building. Quartz is a hard mineral and has been admired from prehistory for its similarities when cutting to diamond. In fact in Arkansas Quartz are cut to imitate diamonds and are termed Arkansas Quartz diamonds.

Arkansas state between Oklahoma and Tennessee in North America is the likely origin of some of the finest Quartz specimens ever found. Since prehistoric eras, early man had fashioned tools from quartz and admired the clarity and qualities of Quartz. The Ouachita Mountain range which stretches for about 170 miles is no exception, Indian peoples tools and points which have the telltale marks of being chipped out of Quartz. The vein of Quartz in this mountain range runs approximately 30 to 40 miles and is centred around Little Rock, Arkansas.
