In this third episode of the Ultimate Crystal Digging Guide, I go on a trip to the Wegner Phantom Quartz Crystal Mine.
Join me as I find plenty of clear crystal points and clusters as well as a few rare black Phantom Quartz Crystals.
The Wegner Mine is located in Montgomery County near Mount Ida, Arkansas. This area is known to be one of the best quartz crystal deposits in the world. It is the largest singular deposit of quartz on this planet, stretching all the way from Oklahoma to East of Little Rock. Some of the best quality clear crystals can be self-collected around Hot Springs National Park and Mount Ida.
This rock hounding adventure starts with a bumpy open-truck ride that takes approximately 40 minutes and travels thru the Ouachita National Forest. After arriving at the mine site, your guide will point out the tailings digging area where you are allowed to collect as many stones and crystals as you would like. The allotted digging time at the actual mine is four hours. Make sure to make reservations for this mine. (Filmed in August 2018)
This peculiar crystal mine is known for many Specialty Master Crystal Formations such as Phantom Quartz, Tabular Quartz, Double Terminated crystals and more.
