Quartz with Chlorite
LOCATION: Central Hill Area, Calaveras County, California, USA
NOTES: A top shelf crystal cabinet sized specimen from  an old cut in the old Southern Pacific Railroad. This material was collected from a the 1930's (1936!) and lasting through the late 1980's. The trail to the mineral cut is Southwest of the Central Hill Road exit on highway number twenty-six. The old collecting locality is between San Andreas and Valley Springs along the North side of the North Fork of the Calaveras River. This site is now avalanched, leaving alot of overburden where the promising crystal veins were once exposed. In addition, the railway has reverted back to completely privately owned property with no trespassing permitted.
