Hexagonal Quartz
« on: July 09, 2017, 10:18:19 PM »
Hey folks,

Have been finding a lot of this hexagonal Quartz on a trail in B.C. lately. All within about a 5 meter radius.
One looks like the base of a Quartz cluster and has some sparkle on it.  Another one is clear and has rainbows all through it and one has a yellow ish tinge to it. (tried to upload some photos but couldn't work it out)
There are also some large soccer ball size bits of this milky quartz in the same area and they all range from pink to yellow and other colours.
After doing some research there is an old gold mine not too far away and was wondering if there is any point getting a metal detector and having a closer look. Not idea about any of this, have only started researching today (after a friend said "where there's quartz there's gold").

Any advice would be great!
