Quartz, Herkimer-type, ~2cms from Morocco

Ref: 23-860

Quartz, which is the most abundant silica mineral and which occurs in most igneous and practically all metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, is nearly pure silicon dioxide. The name quartz is believed to have originated in the early 1500s from the Saxon word querklufterz (cross-vein ore), which was corrupted to quererz and then to quartz. Quartz was well known to the ancients, who called it crystal or ROCK CRYSTAL.
Quartz is colorless and transparent when pure. Its hardness is 7 on the Mohs scale. This crystal exhibits clarity with natural smooth faces in a double-terminated configuration and similar crystals from Herkimer County in New York are prized by collectors throughout the world.
Crystal supplied will have an average dimension of 2cms. and will be supplied mounted on a descriptive card.
