The Hunt for Crystal Mountains

Crystal country
China is a huge country and a good part of it is mountainous. It is in these remote high mountains where beautiful and rare rock crystals can still be found. In the mountains of Yunnan, the most exquisite tend to be found in caves, typically formed millions of years ago from uids that escaped from the magma owing through the fractures and cavities that exist at the interface between the earth’s crust and mantel. With the right conditions, crystal growth occurs. Eventually, these crystals are brought to the surface during volcanic eruptions, or reach the surface through mountain building and erosion. Due to the length of time required for crystal growth and our geologically active earth, it is quite difficult to and a good piece of crystal rock.
In China, knowing the right rock hunters can be very helpful as we managed to % nd the most incredible masterpieces by Mother Nature.
