The Mozarkite Society was organized in February, 2000, and incorporated in April, 2000. The officers for 2016 are: President: Kelly Blum 816-835-2044 Vice President: Ted Bolich 660-890-4983 Secretary: David Cox 660-473-5180 firstname.lastname@example.org Treasurer: Joyce Grinstead 660-827-3888 email@example.com Our resident authority on Mozarkite is Linville Harms. His story of Mozarkite starts in 1957 when he discovered that the stone could be polished and made into jewelry. Before this it was referred to “as a stone that Indians made arrowheads for their everyday use.” In 1967, Senate Bill No. 216 was approved designating Mozarkite as the state rock for Missouri. Mozarkite is an attractive, highly-colored cryptocrystalline variety of quartz appearing in many colors and shades of colors such as red, blue, brown, pink, white, yellow, black raspberry, salmon and green which is very scarce. The formation of the stone created a “swirling” of the various colors. When the stone is “cut open or sliced”, (using a diamond edge saw blade), the exposed surface often reveals pictures. It takes little imagination to find faces, mountains, lakes, trees, waterfalls, etc. One such piece is displayed in the Truman Library in Independence bearing the likeness of a Missouri Mule. Mozarkite has a hardness of 7.5 to 7.75 on the Mohs scale (diamonds are 10), which qualifies it as a suitable material for semiprecious gemstone. The hardness allows the stone to be worked to a high polish.
