    Quartz crystals

    Happy Independence Day everybody!!! Just wanted to share a couple of pictures of Quartz pieces I've found here on the state line in waxhaw Lancaster. I love digging for these beauties. I haven't found the source yet and aim to find a lot more. I keep my eyes peeled for gold as well. Any suggestions on finding more crystals?Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm working on better equipment to get the really fine gold I've been finding. The land I'm on is very unique. Rock outcrops everywhere and they're different. A few spots I find a lot of green rock that's full of very shiny gold and silver material. Not sure if it's mica pyrite gold silver electrum Galena as all of those have been found in the area.

    Yeah, Mica DOES look like Gold/Silver... it flakes off.

    That green rock could possibly be ultramafic, need to post a picture of it, if so it came out of the mantle and could be a promising area to prospect.

    Took some pictures of the green material I've been finding. I also added a picture of quartz that looks like maybe hematite inclusions? Click image for larger version.

    I have ultramafic green rocks at my property in WNC but it's a much darker green than what I'm seeing in your pics and don't see anything that looks like hematite.

    From the research I've done I believe the green rock is schist. I thought the burgundy colored rock was maybe hematite. It looks and feels like quartz but has that awesome color. Also it's the only piece I've found and I've been going in the woods every weekend for at least a year. So whatever it is apparently it was a rare occurrence I suppose

    Just curious what area of Wnc are you? When time and money permits I go up to the mountains and look for places to rockhound. I've been to the tourist traps and they're fun but there's nothing like having a place to yourself or a couple of buddies and do some digging and hounding. Unfortunately I'm the only one around that finds earths creations amazing and awe inspiring.
