Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsQuartz (SiO2) is the most common mineral found on the earth's surface, and occurs in nearly all silica-rich igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks.  Quartz can be macrocrystalline, with crystals visible to the eye, or cryptocrystalline, where crystals are microscopic.  Forms of cryptocrystalline Quartz include Agate, Jasper, and Chalcedony.

Macrocrystalline forms are usually colorless and transparent (called Rock Crystal or Clear Quartz), or white and translucent (Milky Quartz).  Colored varieties include Amethyst, Citrine, Rose Quartz, and Smoky Quartz.

Most Quartz originally forms when silica-rich magmas solidify into rocks like granite.  When these igneous rocks weather, the hardness of Quartz ensures that grains survive to form the basis of sedimentary rocks. Large collectible crystals of Quartz usually form in crusts, hydrothermal veins, and geodes in sandstone.

Quartz was one of the first minerals discovered, and historically has been carved into everything from crystal balls to vases, decanters, chandeliers, and jewelry.  Today Quartz has many uses, including electronics, radios, watches, glassmaking, and machine bearings.

The largest Quartz crystal ever officially substantiated was found near Itapore, Goiaz, Brazil.  It was 20 feet long, 5 feet across a prism face, and estimated to have weighed over 44 tons.  The Quartz specimens on this page are from the famous Minas Gerais mining district in Brazil.
