Dotsero Diamond

Formula:
SiO2
Name:
The name is for the local community: Dotsero, Colorado, on Interstate 70.
A variety of Quartz

Fanciful local name for quartz crystals enclosed in a geologically recent basalt flow. Being incompatible with basaltic lava, the quartz crystals are rounded by reaction with the surrounding lava. Apparently the crystals were detrital, and got picked up by the flow.
