Introduction to Quartz Stone

- Jul 03, 2018 -

Quartz stone, usually we say quartz stone is a new type of stone which is synthesized by more than 90% quartz crystals plus resin and other trace elements.

It is through a special machine in a certain physical, chemical conditions to suppress the large size plate, its main material is quartz. Quartz is a mineral that is easily changed into liquid form when heated or pressured. It is also a fairly common rock-making mineral, which is found in all three types of rock. Because it is the most late crystallization of igneous rocks, the complete crystal surface is usually missing, mostly in the middle of the other first crystalline rock-making minerals. Quartz is the simplest silicon dioxide [i.e. silica. Silica: The old name of silicon], glass luster, no cleavage surface, but with shell-like fracture. Microcrystalline Quartz is called jade pith, agate or jasper. Pure quartz is colorless, but it exhibits different colours due to impurities that often contain transitional elements. Quartz is very stable, it is not easy to weathering or change for his species of minerals. According to the degree of SiO2 crystallization can be divided into crystal crystal Quartz, polycrystalline quartzite jade.
