You are on the JEFFREY QUARRY
SOLUTION QUARTZ page.
|Helpful navigation tips for our site:
REFRESH: We update frequently so be sure to refresh your browser to see any
TIME STAMP: On the upper left there is usually a date and time showing when
the page was created or updated.
CHECK BOTTOM OF PAGE: If you see a recent date, that indicates something
new is on the page and often it will be added to the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
(that's because it is much easier to simply add it to the bottom as compared to
moving dozens of photos and text boxes to make room at the top of a page).
ENLARGE PHOTOS: Almost all photos will expand when you click on them.
Those that have a plus sign when you hover your cursor over the photo can be
enlarged even further.
YELLOW LINKS: Links are almost always in YELLOW unless I just happen to
miss doing that. Otherwise they will be the standard blue color.
SITE MAP: It's your friend! I've been adding pages to this site for years and it
has become a monster. But, it is a manageable monster. It's easy to get lost
and confused and the site map will likely help you find your way back home.
Look for site map links on the upper right of most pages. I've also added it to
most navigation bars as well as the 'go to' drop-down menu.
"GO TO": Almost every page has a 'go to' drop down menu with a link to home,
the site map, and most of my other presences on the web such as ebay, flickr,
twitter, zazzle, etc.
|Solution Quartz was found at the Jeffrey Quarry in Pulaski County, Arkansas.
Solution Quartz has a unique crystal habit, especially in regards to the
terminations. The crystal shown above and immediately below is atypical because
it is very large for the locality (relatively speaking) and has a combination
termination that is part regular and part solution quartz habit.
Lower down on this page will be other examples of Solution Quartz from Jeffrey's
|Click any photo to enlarge. A
"+" symbol indicates that
it will enlarge a second time.
|I will be adding new photos soon.
Arkansas has many different types of minerals
and crystals. Use the navigation buttons at the
top of the page to check out some of the other
types of minerals that occur in Arkansas. I will
be adding a wavellite page eventually.
|We do have nice solution quartz crystals
for sale at our rock shop in McDonough,
Georgia ( see banner below right) and we
also have them for sale in our ebay store
(use drop-down menu above right at top
of page to find it).
|Below is a crystal from Jeffrey's Quarry that has a normal termination but has
a crystal penetrating it. This is informally called a "Penetrator Crystal". It
also has a crystal completely inside along with cookeite inclusions. Those
are informally called "Manifestations" in some circles. I have this crystal
#10167 currently listed for sale on eBay. You can use the drop-down menu
at the upper right of this page for my eBay store link. If you don't see it listed
in my store then that means it has already sold.
