Description: Quartz is one of the most well-known minerals on earth. It occurs in basically all mineral environments and is the important constituent of many rocks. Quartz is also the most varied of all minerals, occurring in all different forms, habits, and colors. There are more varieties of names given to Quartz than any other mineral.
The crystal habits of Quartz are widely variable, but the most common habit is hexagonal prisms terminated with a six-sided pyramid (actually two rhombohedrons). Three of the six sides of the pyramid may dominate causing the pyramid to be or look three sided.
