Crystal Clear Quartz Mineral
A fantastic piece of quartz from our collection of crystals rocks and minerals. Rock quartz as the colourless transparent variety of the mineral quartz is also known can be particularly challenging to capture well on camera so unfortunately our photo really doesn't do this piece the justice that it truly deserves.
The flat face of this quartz crystal seen in our first photo measures nine centimetres by six. Being as clear as glass it enables you to see right through the stone which is void of any fractures, inclusions or other anomalies. The lense has not been able to replicate the clarity accurately because of the crystals' optical behaviour.
After ice and feldspar quartz is the most common mineral in Earth's crust and one which also has the largest number of gemstone varieties. Whilst the name rock quartz can be used to describe the colourless transparent variety, material that's included or exhibits colour tends to be known simply as quartz or by it's own specific name. Examples include rose quartz, smoky quartz, citrine, amethyst and tourmalinated quartz which is a variety of included quartz.
A firm favourite in our collection, this outstanding piece of quartz certainly won't disappoint.
