Additional Info

Quartz (named after a Slavic word for "hard") is one of the most common minerals on earth. Many beautiful and affordable gemstones come from Quartz, two of the most popular being Amethyst and Citrine. Quartz occurs in a very broad range of colors.

Where to buy?
For Quartz check what Amazon has to offer. You'll usually find quite a selection from many different vendors. Worth a check. For other high quality gemstones (Rubies, Saphhires, Emeralds) and especially Diamonds, I highly recommend JamesAllen.
