There’s An Awesome Rock Ranch Hiding In Arkansas And You’ll Want To Visit
Diamonds are a well-known find in Arkansas, but they aren’t the only dazzling rock that can be mined within the state. Most folks aren’t aware that the quartz found in Arkansas is some of the highest quality found in the entire world. Only Brazil comes close to matching the purity of our crystals. Although there are a good handful of crystal mines around the state, one in particular has some impressive bragging rights. Ron Coleman Mining not only has a large, high-yielding crystal mine, they have also uncovered ginormous crystals upwards of 2,000 lbs. Let’s see if we can strike gold, er, quartz rather, at this unique rock ranch.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
