By considering an arbitrary two-qubit state, it is shown that the Fisher information is intrinsically linked to the geometric discord which allows a measure for quantum correlations beyond entanglement. The complex amplitude of oscillations of the probability density function is upper bounded by the geometric discord which subsequently results in the Fisher information being bounded by the geometric discord. This gives an experimental observable which can be used to quantify quantum correlations beyond entanglement. This observable can be used to witness quantum correlations in an interferometry experiment, and provide another avenue for quantum technologies to continue to develop.
