Quartz Crystals Close Up

Discover the Grounds » Native Crystals and Gems with J. Van Brahana

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 our large installation of crystals from Blue Springs, Arkansas and discuss other sparkly rocks that are commonly found, such as diamonds, gems, and glass. The program will feature a dazzling geological show and tell.
