Growth Interference Quartz (GIQ) is an occurrence where Quartz and Calcite compete for space in solution. The calcite changes the habit of the quartz by interfering with the normal quartz growth. When the calcite is then etched away with acid, the results are some fantastic and wild shapes and habits of Quartz!!
The Chinese mineral industry produces an array of specimens from several rich regions within its borders! We cannot think of Chinese minerals without first thinking of Fluorite. China has the greatest variety of Fluorites of any country! What China lacks in pegmatite minerals, it makes up for in the prolific new sulfide deposits of Inner Mongolia. One thing is for sure about China... when it produces, it usually produces in quantity! As the Chinese continue further into industrialization, more regions are extricated for their needs, and more specimens will become available.
