A mineralogical mystery? I just love this incredible specimen, Quartz variety ‘rock crystal’ from the famous McEarl Ridge mine, Blue Springs, Garland Co., Arkansas, U.S.A. Spectacular pockets were encountered during the 1980s in quartz veins running through sandstone, with such supreme lustre, clarity and size that they were regarded the finest ever found. Indeed Garland Co. still produces incredible specimens, and it is easy to see why it was from these type of specimens the ancient Greeks coined the term Krystallos, derived from the ancient belief that ‘rock crystal’ was a kind of ice frozen so hard it could no longer melt (and found in mountainous regions of the Alps). However, this one is amazing! It has long been ‘known’ that quartz has a poor ‘cleavage’, that is it doesn’t break perfectly preferring to do so by a ‘conchoidal’ fracture, poorly defined and shaped like a ‘scallop’ shell. However, I have seen good cleavage directions in quartz, which is usually parallel to the dominant rhombohedron (sloping faces on the top), and this one here is almost showing a perfect fracture where the top half of the crystal has seemingly ‘slid’ down and rotated about 5 degrees anticlockwise! I have seen perfect ‘chisel shaped’ crystals like the lower portion from here, but never with a ‘top’ like this? Parallel growth? Its almost as if some tectonic force has slowly pushed and parted the crystal along the rhombohedral direction, but some slight regrowth may have occurred by the look of a small ‘lip’ above. Fascinating! Hey @james_zigras you seen similar in your mines? All in all a spectacular specimen of water-clear optical quartz from one of its greatest localities! @mardani.fine.minerals specimen #minerals #gems #quartz #arkansas #usa #fineminerals #crystals #crystalpower #stones #geology #education #art #naturesart #sculpture #amazing #crystallography #rockhound #mining #lore #rockcrystal #crystalgrowth #wow #weird #strangerthings #power #instagood
