Testimonials

Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Liz

A plethora of information about quartz is available via books and the internet for those interested in detailed information. This description simply covers the basics. Quartz, sometimes called “rock crystal”, is one of the most abundant minerals on earth and is comprised of numerous stones bearing other names. Quartz is extremely hard, often contains tiny air bubbles and has a double refraction. Clear quartz is colorless and transparent and there is considerable color variation among the numerous other types of quartz. While some quartz are macrocrystalline and can be recognized with the naked eye, a second variety of the mineral is cryptocrystalline comprised of crystals that are only noticed through magnification. Macrocrystallines include well known stones such as amethyst, aventurine, hawks-eye, tiger eye, rose quartz, smoky quartz, rutiliated quartz, snow quartz, etc. We commonly recognize the other variety, cryptocrystalline, as chalcedony. The occurrences of quartz are too numerous to list and are based on the specific variety of the mineral. The purported healing properties of quartz are also varied and dependent upon the specific variety.
