Quartz crystals



One of the neat things about basalt is that other rock seams are sometimes found between its layers. A rough seam of quartz crystals lies exposed at Cape Sharp. Here are some photos I took last weekend (with my hand in there for some perspective). Typically Fundy, I think there might be some agate mixed in there too!

I saw something on TV about Bay of Fundy tides and I found you. I am from the other side of Canada. You have a very interesting blog.
