Motley Pocket

Arrowhead Mine, Mt Ida, Montgomery Co., Arkansas, USA

Motley pocket, socalled because of the mix of red and grey clay. These pockets tend to be fractured due to slips and shifts, and most crystals and clusters are floaters. However, quartz tends to be very clear from these types of pockets. Photo taken 10.14.2006 during annual quartz dig.
