Skeletal Quartz found at Diamond Hill Mine in Antreville SC USA
 SC Wild's Heritage Center in the surrounding area 
will be on hand to your answer questions.

 In a brochure about the exhibit, an explanation is given for the presence of gems in and around Due West: “The factors of temperature, pressure, space, chemical elements, and time have been just right in upper Abbeville County in SC USA to leave deep, rich deposits of amethyst and other gems which, over time, have made their way toward the surface.”
Bowie Arts Center's Director, Ruth Burton noted that many residents are unaware of the “rich veins of amethyst, aquamarine, skeletal quartz, garnets,
 and other minerals and gemstones” in this area.
