What is quartz?

Quartz is a stone that almost everyone is familiar with – whether they realize it or not!
As perhaps the most abundant mineral on Earth, it’s worth paying attention to.
It also has a long history of lore, tradition, and practical uses – let’s take a look at some of these, plus a few fun quartz facts!
This mineral can be found all across the globe: "Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen.
It is silicon dioxide (SiO2). Quartz grows in a crystalline structure – that is, it forms in a predictable pattern."

Quartz, itself, is a colorless mineral that can be either transparent (clear/see through) or opaque (not see though).
When other minerals grow with it, the color can change. For example, did you know that the purple-colored mineral amethyst is a type of quartz?
It’s true! Amethyst is quartz that has been colored with other minerals,
including iron. Citrine – which has a yellow hue – is also a variety of quartz which, again, takes on different coloring from the added minerals
(we talk more about citrine here).
What does quartz look like?

Quartz comes in all shapes and sizes. It grows in large masses, as well as clusters of points. Once it’s in the market,
it is often cut or carved into numerous shapes. This can include spheres, pyramids, skulls, and wands, and much, much more.

Crystal points can be sold either raw (uncut/unpolished) or polished (all of the rough edges and growth lines are sanded down) –
or any variation of those! Often, you will see some quartz points that are “partially polished,” meaning that some of the sides or faces have been polished,
while others have been left in their natural, rough state.

Why do people like quartz?

One of the reasons that quartz is so popular is because it is easy to purchase: it can be found in most any crystal shop,
both brick-and-mortar and online. It is also easy to come across pieces that are very affordable!
Of course, depending on the size, shape, and/or “grade” (quality), it may be more or less expensive.
But quartz is also beautiful: its clear points can be absolutely stunning!
