Fascinating quartz point from our collection of crystals, rocks and minerals. This piece exhibits some wonderful fractures and inclusions which contribute to a rainbow of colours being visible as it catches the light at various angles. Almost completely transparent, it's both tactile and full of character but quartz is relatively fragile so it must be handled carefully. Terminated quartz points should always be placed somewhere safe where they are not at risk of being knocked over.
This six sided quartz point was carefully chosen by one of our team and would make a great display piece for anyone who loves natural polished minerals. Terminated points are also popular for use in alternative therapies such as crystal healing.
Colourless, transparent varieties of quartz are also known as rock crystal, this name came about during the late Middle Ages and was used to differentiate clear quartz from a new material known as colourless glass which was also referred to as crystal glass.
One issue with selling quartz points online is that they can be extremely challenging to capture well in a photograph and their true beauty cannot always be fully appreciated. Whilst we always try to take the best photographs possible, the only way you'll ever really be able to fully appreciate natural quartz is to actually have it in your hands.
