I knew the letter "q" was going to be a real challenge in keeping with my nature theme. I could have written about Quebec, which is a province in Canada, and in comprised of land and people and animals and plants. They all fit in the category of nature, and Quebec is a beautiful place to visit.
Often small bits of quartz are mixed with other minerals, and that is what is seen most often when the sun glints off of something shiny in a dark rock. I have a few like that in my rock collection, and maybe I'll write more about that tomorrow. But these few pieces my daughter gave me have big chunks of pure quartz.
This other picture is of pure quartz, and I found it on Wikpedia. Quite beautiful, don't you think?
