Quartz with Chlorite inclusions
Willis Mine, USA
Willis Mine , Paron, Saline Co., Arkansas, USA
An outstanding chlorite-included quartz crystal from the Willis Mine, near Paron, in Saline Co., Arkansas, USA! This crystal is extremely gemmy and exhibits several phantom inclusions of forest green chlorite. Chlorite-included quartz is fairly uncommon in Arkansas, with the Willis Mine being the most famous locality in the state. The mine is no longer operational and specimens from the Willis are tough to obtain today – as are the chlorite phantoms, in general, as there is no operational mine today that produces them. Ex.
