Quartz is one of Earth’s most abundant minerals and is an essential component of granite and many other rocks. Often transparent, Quartz can be found in almost any color. Quartz has piezoelectric properties, meaning it generates an electric charge in response to pressure.
SiO2; hardness 7; isometric.
