Crystalline Stone Found In Nagaland; Potentially Be Quartz says Geologists

People in Nagaland's Mon District were seen in a 'diamond' digging frenzy as a farmer accidentally discovered a sparkling stone while digging a patch. The preliminary analysis stated that the stones discovered by the villagers were Quartz. Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral composed of silicon and oxygen atoms, and some of the varieties are semi-precious stones. The state government has requested a team of geologists from Kohima to investigate the matter.
