    What is in this quartz?

    Hi,
    I live in a small valley and I found this falling from some dirt and rock in my back yard today. I assume the majority of it is quartz but I am curious to what the silver and gold colors might be. I realize there are many other types of items found in quartz than precious metals I but was simply curious to what it may be. I used to collect this kind of thing in my youth and this peaked my interest. There are several more large stones like this in the same area when I started looking.Click image for larger version.

    The silicate minerals are most common - this appears to be mica.
