Quartz is one of the many natural resources in Arkansas. It is the most common single crystal, and there are many different varieties. There's smoky, bubble, coontail, cubic, asterated, cactus, curved, fractured, parallel growth, twins, phantom, rainbow, and synthetic (man-made) quartz. Quartz can cost a lot per pound, depending on its condition. It can cost from $4-$50 a pound. You can mine quartz at Coleman's Miller Mtn. Mine for only $10 a day.
