Quartz was our first stone passion! For a decade and a half we have attempted to gather as much diversely included and colorful Quartzes as we could find, from every corner of the globe, traveling both to country of origin, and utilizing a vast network of suppliers developed through exhibiting at major USA and international gem and mineral shows. We offer for sale some of the best of our finds, as well as a tremendous volume that has just piled up as a result of wholesaling in volume! If you have a variety of aesthetic Quartz to add to our collection, we'd love to see a flat of material! We also personally collect high quality fine Quartzes, so feel free to email us if you have something special for sale.
Growth Interference Quartz (GIQ) is an occurrence where Quartz and Calcite compete for space in solution. The calcite changes the habit of the quartz by interfering with the normal quartz growth. When the calcite is then etched away with acid, the results are some fantastic and wild shapes and habits of Quartz!! In 2007 we bought the largest existing lot of Bor Quarry Quartz with Growth Interference from Dalnegorsk. Here you will find a full spectrum of GIQ plus other oddball Quartzes from the Bor Quarry.
