Quartz is a crystalized formation of Silicon Dioxide with a hardness of 7, making it a very easy mineral to work with. This gorgeous bright Tangerine Quartz's color is due to high inclusions of iron oxide, a mineral thought to be very grounding. With it's bright color I connect it to the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras.
This piece is from Brazil where it was left in its completely natural state. It is a cluster with many large points and some even growing on the inside (see third photo and video). It weighs 15.5 oz and measures about 5 x 2.75 x 2 inches. It is a truly unique piece.
