Mine Cristal, mining quartz crystals
www.minecristal.ca Stay informed about our new videos: subscribe to our YouTube channel "Mine Cristal". This mine is located in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Photos and video clips shown here date from 1989 - 2012. The open-pit mine produces splendid quartz crystals with exceptional clarity. The largest single crystals measure 60 cm (24 inches) in length. Since mining began in 1989, 32 types, or morphologies of quartz crystals have been catalogued. Geological research into the origins of these crystals has revealed that they formed at this location some 300 million years ago under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. We harvest crystals in the mine only as needed, to supply our store with a sufficient quantity of quartz crystals. Exceptionally (for a mine), we harvest all the crystals by hand and without the use of dynamite. It is a privilege for us to participate in the discovery and extraction of these true gems of nature. The extraction process is done in a manner which respects both the environment and the crystals: we endeavor to keep the crystals whole and in a pristine state. In the museum and the store, our crystals are presented in an untouched, natural state. Amazingly, each crystal is an intricate work of art made by Nature; no two are alike and this makes them even more fascinating! Mine Cristal is considered by experts to be a “geological gem,” one of Canada’s great natural sites, due to it’s unique and abundant mineralogical deposits.

Herkimer Diamond Mining "Behind the Scenes"
One goes to great lengths to mine for Herkimer Diamonds! Now the source and formation of Herkimer Diamonds is of particular interest to us here at American Geode because the Herkimer Diamond was formed in "pockets" not unlike the pockets that formed geodes. Most quartz crystals grow, over the course of millions of years attached to a matrix, attached to the surrounding rock or stone. So in those formations only one end of the quartz crystal grows to its point. With Herkimer Diamonds forming inside pockets, freed from the surrounding matrix stone, they grow points on both ends. The Herkimer Diamond began forming nearly 500 million years ago in pockets within a sedimentary rock called Dolostone (Dolomite and Limestone). Sedimentary rock, different from its two cousins Igneous rock and Metamorphic rock, is formed by layers of mineral and organic matter under hundreds of million years of pressure. As more layers of mineral and organic matter are deposited, this increases the pressure and weight on the lower and earlier layers of sedimentary rock below. The Dolostone covered Herkimer County during the Cambrian Age, when Herkimer County was also the bottom of the sea that spanned across North America. Now this is the part of the Herkimer Diamond formation that is similar to the way geodes are formed: organic material, plants and sea life would die and be buried under new layers of sedimentary stone. When these plants and other sea life would decompose under the rock, they release gases, and this gas is what formed the "pocket." Evidence of this organic, plant material succumbing to decomposition is clear when you see the black shiny flakes of Anthraxolite that surround or leak from these pockets. Anthraxolite is a carbon compound and by-product formed when organic material breaks down. So as the organic material decayed and broke down it became a gas, trapped below layers of sedimentary stone. Air creates its own pressure inside a substance, so the air pressure was carving out its own cavity from the inside out. These air pockets became the pockets we rockhounds discover as we crumble, break, and peel away layers of the dolostone. Over the course of 200-250 million years the layers of sedimentary rock increased and grew, and this increased the pressure and heat on the buried dolostone. Also inside each of these air pockets were various quartz and carbon elements and other compounds "feeling the heat" from being buried below layers of sedimentary rock. Under this pressure of the sedimentary layers of rock, and the ensuing heat, the quartz and other compounds inside these pockets began to transform themselves. Finally, over the course of 300 million years, the glaciers that sat atop Herkimer County began to melt, and washed away layers of the sedimentary rock, and allowed the compounds and elements inside these pockets to cool down and then crystallize. An important question to answer right now is "why are the Herkimer Diamonds double-terminated?" The answer is that quartz does not adhere to the dolostone, therefore the quartz trapped inside these air pockets did not attach to the surrounding matrix host stone. The process left the quartz crystals free to fully crystallize unattached and allowed both of the ends to grow into fully terminated points. Many Herkimer Diamonds are found as clusters attached to one another. They adhered to one another during their crystal growth formation, but again did not adhere to the dolostone interior of the air pocket. The value of Herkimer Diamonds is determined by size and their opacity or translucence. The larger and more translucent Herkimer Diamonds are worth more to a collector or jeweler than the smaller opaque specimens. Knowing the history and background of the Herkimer Diamond however lends a premium in our opinion when you are considering adding Herkimer Diamonds to your collection. They are not commercially mined due to various New York state laws limiting mining in the state, and most of Herkimer County is being used today by happy grazing cows, sugary apple orchards, tart cherry trees, farms of squash, cabbages and onions, and wine grapes. We have recently gained access to heretofore unmined and barren acres in the Herkimer County area on the same geologic slope and ledge as the traditional Herkimer Diamond mines.

One of the significant milestones in mineral collecting came about when a small Silver mine high up in the Mosquito Range above Alma, Colorado was reopened for the express purpose of searching for more of the Rhodochrosite specimens produced in the 1880s when it was being mined for Lead-Silver ore. Using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and other modern tools for location and extraction of specimens without the usual damage, the miners organized by Bryan Lees methodically mined fissure 'targets' generated by GPR and carefully extracted any Rhodochrosites contained within. Most of the production consisted of loose single crystals but along with them were plates and groups of outstanding color, luster and size. Before mining ceased in 2003 significant numbers of specimens had been recovered. Of those many specimens only a few of the top specimens were of the quality or size exhibited by the example seen here. Looking a lot like a toothy slice of watermelon, this crescent shaped confection is literally covered with dozens of brilliantly lustrous rhombs up to 1½ inches on edge, of a deep reddish-pink hue. Scattered over, under, and occasionally on the Rhodochrosite are: cubes of violet Fluorite, brassy-gold Chalcopyrite crystals, black pyramids of Tetrahedrite and colorless needles of Quartz. Due to the extreme care taken when extracting the specimen the condition is excellent and it has been carefully curated ever since. Overall measurements: 11.5 x 5 x 2.75 inches (29.2 x 12.7 x 7 cm).

The Crystal Collector: Missouri trip Top Jewelry grade Drusy quartz
This trip brings us to Missouri where we dig at a private location for Barite, Galena, and my personal favorite....micro-crystalline(drusy) quartz on stromatolites (fossil algae). I know it doesn't sound that appealing but let me tell you, the drusy quartz we dig from this spot has the best twinkle/sparkle that I have ever seen! It's like thousands of tiny melee diamonds twinkling when the light catches it. I sold every last piece I had from this dig and I had a bunch. The most coveted is the nice white or blueish-gray drusy on fossil coral pieces. It has to be seen in person, in sunlight especially, to really appreciate it. This stuff was laying all over the place and we collected till we could carry no more. .Please try to help us out on eBay.

The Crystal Collector: "Giant quartz crystals" Ep. 1 Gwinnett Co. Georgia
Thanks for watching our crystal mining adventures. Check out the "sprite/fairy" some people say we released while digging this vein. Didn't notice it for a couple years until someone pointed it out in the video. Here it is slowed down... https://www.instagram.com/p/BAOYaocCJ3y/?taken-by=thecrystalcollector Watch as host Bryan Major digs quartz crystals in Georgia! These are dug direct from the vein they originated in. These are said to be some of the largest ever found in Georgia. Discovered by Jason Barrett in 2008, the crystals have become well known due to the size, the odd location near Atlanta, the rare alpine type vein they came from, and the super unique sparkle they had in the sun from the thousands of "sprouting" growth form baby crystals.. The mine in the video only has a limited supply left. The pure white quartz crystals coupled with the unique and odd growth forms, became a big hit up in Asheville, N.C. The metaphysical crowd and crystal healers have all loved the powers the Gwinnett quartz has locked away. Check out these two places to buy rocks and crystals.

Quartz Crystal Collecting in Virginia (Part 1: "The Dig")
Collecting Virginia Quartz Crystals "Part 1: The Dig" **This video is of the dig from our new trip! There will be a second video of the finds and pictures coming soon!!** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About the Dig: We dug some amazing quartz crystals the other day here in Virginia! These crystals are water clear, and they are very beautiful! These pieces make amazing specimens for display as well as pieces for jewelry. These beautiful clear quartz crystals are found locally here in Virginia! The crystals are found in the residual soil with little effort needed to find them! Simply dig, sift, and wahlah! These crystals are found in what used to be Alpine-Type Fissures! The crystals have long since weathered out and broken away from the main host rock (Red/white Sandstone)! Most of the points are single clear crystals ranging from 0.5” to 1" and the largest coming in at 3inches!!!! The clarity of these crystals resemble the well liked Arkansas quartz that have been a collector’s favorite for many years! Even though the size is smaller, the clarity and location make up for it! Many collectors search for quartz coming from specific locations! When it comes to collecting minerals, it is not always about the bulk, size, or quality. Special and unique locations in areas that are very uncommon on the market make these prized pieces! Plus the size make these perfect for wire wrappers and others interested in jewelry! We are sure that this place has more hidden secrets than we know! Double terminated crystals can be found at this location! A lot of the quartz crystals contain fractures that have allowed hematite to seep into them creating a very unique yellow, red, orange look inside of the crystals! The plates that are found contain so much hematite that the cleaning process is very difficult, so we usually just enjoy them as they are found! More will come in time!!!

The Crystal Collector:  Cleaning out a quartz crystal pocket at my giant crystal site in Georgia
Took this video today (February 4th, 2013) at my Giant quartz crystal site from the first episode of Crystal Collector in gwinnett County, Georgia. I am 13 feet down and just breached a pocket with some quartz crystals. They are covered in a coating of Manganese oxide. I like to call them "shadow quartz". The manganese oxide forms such a smooth slick layer unlike anything I have ever seen before at any other location. I am compiling a video of this location and hopefully will have it publioshed in the next few weeks or so. This location will soon be built over by houses and this will be the only record of mother nature's artwork before it's gone forever.

Skeleton Pocket Pt.3 Fluorite on Orthoclase
We discovered an interesting pocket of crystals on our Devil May Care lode claim in Colorado. It consisted mostly of large single and multiple attached orthoclase feldspar crystals. Most of the crystals look to have been not fully formed in areas, or another mineral was eroded out or simply replaced. Whatever process caused the "Skeletonized" pitted areas in the orthoclase, the pitted areas were lined with sometimes gemmy albite. There was some fluorite found in the pocket as well, including some beautiful fluorite cubes on orthoclase, and a large, significant discovery of cubic fluorite. Only very small amounts of smoky quartz crystals were found in this pocket.
