Made from a continuous framework of silicon-oxygen tetrahedra resulting in a semi-precious gemstone. Pure quartz, traditionally called rock crystal (sometimes called clear quartz), is colorless and transparent (clear) or translucent, and has often been used for hardstone carvings, such as the Lothair Crystal. Common colored varieties include citrine, rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, milky quartz, and others.
Quartz has been known and appreciated since pre-historic times. The most ancient name known is recorded by Theophrastus in about 300-325 BCE, κρύσταλλος or kristallos. The varietal names, rock crystal and bergcrystal, preserve the ancient usage. The root words κρύοσ signifying ice cold and στέλλειυ to contract (or solidify) suggest the ancient belief that kritallos was permanently solidified ice. The earliest printed use of "quertz" was anonymously published in 1505, but attributed to a physician in Freiberg. Germany, Ulrich Rühlein von Kalbe. By 1530, Agricola used the spelling "quartz" as well as "quertze", but Agricola also referred to "crystallum", "silicum", "silex", and silice". Tomkeieff (1941) suggested an etymology for quartz: "The Saxon miners called large veins - Gänge, and the small cross veins or stringers - Querklüfte. The name ore (Erz, Ertz) was applied to the metallic minerals, the gangue or to the vein material as a whole. In the Erzgebirge, silver ore is frequently found in small cross veins composed of silica. It may be that this ore was called by the Saxon miners 'Querkluftertz' or the cross-vein-ore. Such a clumsy word as 'Querkluftertz' could easily be condensed to 'Querertz' and then to 'Quertz', and eventually become 'Quarz' in German, 'quarzum' in Latin and 'quartz' in English.
Rough base points are usually linked to LARGE (or bigger!) obelisks and occur because crafting such large specimens from the raw crystal matrix often results in the need to pass through, or into the bedrock, or mineral foundation of the natural unprocessed crystal structure. Also, because of the time and effort required to fashion such specimen obelisks, it is not unusual for the shedding of small areas of the crystal, leaving areas of natural crystal.
Sometimes the sheer size of the obelisk results in areas of rough crystal not being cut/polished. No matter the roughness, the contrast between the polished matrix and the rough areas, or areas of cleavage results in some extremely beautiful and unique crystal specimens. Prices for these crystals take into account the condition, lustre, weight, roughness, size and inclusions of each specimen.
