History: Quartz (SiO2) is considered solidified light and oxygen. Quartz encompasses a large family of stones and crystals, all of which are made up primarily of silicon dioxide, one of the most common and most important substances in the world. Crystals of pure quartz, generally six-sided, can be found in all shades and colors. Quartz crystals grow singularly or in groups and take on different shapes according to the temperature at the time of their formation. Quartz crystals can also contain other minerals "frozen" within, as in Rutilated Quartz. Quartz can form a huge variety of aggregates, clusters, gravel, sand and single stones. Quartz can be smoky, milky white to clear as water. Quartz was used as tools and weapons early in history and are now used worldwide in watches, appliances and technology!
Quartz can be formed of microscopic crystals and take on entirely different appearances and qualities. Other members of the Quartz family include Chalcedony, Agate, Amethyst, Aventurine, Carnelian, Citrine, Herkimer Diamonds, Jasper, Onyx, Sardonyx and Tiger's Eye. These are treated separately because their healing qualities are very different from crystal or "rock" quartz.
