quartzQuartz And Quartz Crystals

Quartz is a mineral that has many different names based upon the color. The name originated from the Greek word, Krustallos, which means, “ice”. Originally is was believed that colorless quartz was ice that had been turned into rock. (see Quartz Crystals)

Quartz is the primary ingredient of sand. Quartz is the second most common of all minerals, composed of silicon dioxide, or silica, SiO2. It is also the most varied in terms of varieties, colors and forms. This variety comes about because of the abundance and widespread distribution of quartz. A collector could easily have hundreds of quartz specimens and not have two that are the same due to the many broad categories. It is distributed all over the world as a constituent of rocks and in the form of pure deposits. Quartz is found in veins and nodules in sedimentary rock, chiefly limestone. Sandstone which is a sedimentary rock, is composed mainly of quartz.

Quartz crystals have a property known as the piezoelectric effect, that is, they produce an electric voltage when subjected to pressure along certain directions of the crystal. Because of this property, quartz crystal has important applications in the electronics industry for controlling the frequency of radio waves. It also has the optical property of rotating the plane of polarized light and is used in polarizing microscopes.

A good collector must always be on top of the many varieties of quartz and it sometimes embarrasses a collector to have collected too many specimens of such a common mineral. But many collectors believe that you can never have enough quartz specimens.
