What is White Quartz?
White quartz, also known as milk quartz, is a much-admired and adaptable gemstone with a variety of uses. This is a crystalline version of silica, located in diverse geological environments globally. The quartz is treasured for its transparency, purity, and innate attractiveness, frequently utilized in jewelry crafting, crystal therapy, and other uses.
History of the Milky Quartz
This mineral is located in various parts of the world. It has been utilized as a decorative stone and for jewelry, sculpture, and other ornamental object creation for centuries. The roots of white quartz trace back to ancient times, with a belief that it had healing properties linked to its crown chakra association. However, its use predates this, with evidence suggesting that Neolithic humans used it over 8,000 years ago.
It frequently forms in crystal formations underground or on the surface where water interacts with rocks or minerals containing silica dioxide. Over time, this combination forms large crystals that can then be mined and cut into a variety of shapes and sizes for decorative purposes.
Physical Properties of White Quartz
This is made up of silicon dioxide. Its crystalline configuration has a Mohs hardness of 7, making it quite sturdy and hard. Milky quartz is formed when gas bubbles are trapped in its crystal structure during formation. It usually contains additional substances, such as iron oxide or clay, that give it a milky look, and color variations can range from gray to pink based on these other components.
The crystalline formations of this quartz are highly systematic, with each atom arranged in a structured manner – this makes it one of the most stable minerals available. It often naturally occurs in stratified deposits such as veins, sedimentary rocks, and metamorphic rocks. This mineral has been used for centuries both commercially and in jewelry due to its strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal.
