Slovak term or phrase: hniezdo
Kremité keratofýry s ojedinelými žilkami turmalínu a nepravidelné hniezda kremeňa = quarzige Keratofyre mit Turmalinadern und Quarznest.
I am translating text from Slovak/German to English and want to check whether hniezda kremeňa / Quarznest means "quartz nest" or something else. I am not sure because, even though the machine translator says "quartz nest", there are no such references on Google or in the few geology notebooks I have. Could anyone supply the proper geological term?

Context is underground, which makes "pocket" more suitable after checking both Slovak and German terms, while "cluster" and "bed" seem to work in the context of "formation" and "surface rocks" respectively.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I actually was leaning toward "bed"/"cluster" because I'm following this question on both the Slovak and German boards. However, the context is "underground", not "surface", so "pocket" makes more sense. However, I am keeping "bed" in the context of "surface"
