This piece of highly polished quartz is completely transparent and void of any fractures or inclusions. Its surface is subtly rippled and the underside is covered with a layer of dark coloured crystals.
Quartz is a mineral that we're particularly fond of at Stone Mania and each of the many pieces that we feature in our collection, has been very carefully chosen. This piece of rock came from a mineral dealer in South Africa who we really enjoy dealing with because he finds manages to find some of the most interesting and unusual pieces.
Our second photo shows the underneath of this polished quartz and the third was taken with it upside down looking through the side. Although it is transparent, the view does appear to be slightly distorted due to the rippling on the surface of this quartz. The brown colouration that's visible is a reflection of the layer of crystals on the base.
All of the quartz in our collection is available for wholesale or retail purchase but the prices on our website, are for retail purchases.
