Quartz crystal mine.jpg (16669 bytes)

The quartz crystal is contained in pockets within the quartz veins. Once a pocket of quartz crystal is exposed with the backhoe, the actual mining of the crystal is done by hand with tools such as picks and "scratchers". Hand-mining at this point is necessary to reduce the chances of damaging the crystals. Any damage to the crystals caused by mining and handling severely reduces their value in the marketplace. The crystals are then carefully wrapped, placed in baskets, and transported to yards and businesses where they are cleaned, processed, and sold. Most quartz crystal mining occurs only in the upper 15 to 20 feet of the surface.

ARAGONITE CRYSTALS from Morocco

The name "Aragonite" comes from the location of the original find in Molina de Aragon, Spain. This specimen is from Asni (Atlas Mountains), Morocco. Aragonite forms from precipitating hot water that traps in organic matter, such as leaves, twigs & moss. It is a pseudomorph from gypsum & calcite. It is often found in cracks & cavities with iron ores in hot springs & geysers. Chemical formula: CaCO3, hardness 3.5-4; density is 2.93-2.95
