Can you help make this a better article? What good localities have we missed? Can you supply pictures of better specimens than those we show here? Can you give us more and better information about the specimens from these localities? Can you supply better geological or historical information on these localities?

Here will go a good picture of a quartz specimen from Slovenia and general remarks about the quartz from this country.


Here are some url's to some of the better quartz specimens here on mindat that can be considered for inclusion in the article. These, in mosc cases are just for temporairy use untill we can get images of the much better specimens that are almost certainly out there. We should also consider that there are probably localities out there with fine specimens that are not even mentioned on mindat. Also in some instances there are sometimes pictures on mindat, of specimens from a locality, but they were so ratty that I did not include them here, but there may also be relly good specimens from there that we should talk about in this article.

The 3rd image looks very much like specimen from Sostro, close to Ljubljana, that come from fissures in sandstones and conglomerates of Permian age.

Črni vrh (Schwarzenbach), Polhov gradec (Billichgrätz), Slovenia
Quartz from quartz veins and associated (possibly alpine-type) fissures in sandstones and quartz conglomerates of Permian age.

Amir,
Already you are noticing discrepancies. The whole of the quartz image locality thing on mindat is riddled with them. When we write these articles we will need to resolve a lot of them and in the case of questionable localities, we will probably just throw out the image and find another or better one.
