About the gemstone

Gossamer yet rife with inclusions, quartz gemstones are striking in their arctic beauty and reflective magic. Pliny the Elder, the Ancient Roman author and naturalist, once believed that quartz gemstones were made of ice that had been indelibly frozen. 
MOHs Hardness: 7
Origins: Various
Care: Avoid dropping your quartz jewelry onto hard surfaces: quartz is only as strong as its inclusions allow. To clean your quartz jewelry, soak in warm, soapy water and gently remove any dirt with a toothbrush or the like. Ultrasonic and steam cleaners are not recommended.
Healing Properties: Balancing, amplifying, cleansing, and healing.
