Large Rock Pile with Quartz

Large rock pile with quartz on top, in center , located in a deeply wooded area. 
Side view of the quartz rock. The base of this pile is a large boulder, which has been covered by at least 20 rocks. Leaves and forest debris have filled in between so it is difficult to recognize. About 35 years ago while on a hike, I met the then owner of this property. He told me that there were a great many rock piles throughout the area, and that each one had a Quartz rock in the center. He was collecting those quartz rocks to use in his new fireplace.  At the time I didn't give his remark a second thought. Today I cringe at the memory.
