As the April birthstone, the diamond-like purity of quartz crystals has created associations with unity, eternal love and invincibility as well as wealth and good fortune.
Here you see it marked by evanescent drifts of ‘inclusions’ of other mineral, fractures and gases.
Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's continental crust, and its name comes from the German word "Quarz" meaning hard.
The ideal crystal shape is a six-sided prism, hence its three dimensional quality.
Pure quartz is colourless and transparent – but there are many colourful varieties including amethyst, opal, onyx, jasper, Tiger’s Eye and agate.
