Sold Out – Discover the Grounds » Arkansas Crystals with Tom Paradise

Inspired by the exhibition Crystals in Art: Ancient to Today, join Dr. Tom Paradise to learn more about the geological formations that set Arkansas apart from other regions of the United States. Quartz crystals and diamonds can be found naturally occurring in Arkansas, dating back to a time when the Ouachita Mountains near Hot Springs were forming under immense pressure. In this Discover the Grounds, we’ll take a close look at the significance of these minerals, ending with a walk to  our large installation of crystals from Blue Springs, Arkansas.
