Quartz is a common mineral found across the world, and can act as a component in the formation of other stones, particularly in granite. They form a highly unique shape as they progress under different environmental conditions, and due to the variance of size once formed the stones are often weighed as a means of gauging their value. The appearance of these are unique, which makes them a strongly attractive choice when used as semi-precious stones for jewellery. The varieties of quartz range from smoky to milky, depending on the transparency, and can come in a multitude of tinted colours.
Quartz can be manufactured to accommodate countertops in the home, namely because its durability is appealing for kitchen use and the like. Furthermore, the beauty of colour and solidity provides an immaculate eye candy ranging from bold to more variable colour schemes.
