  • What makes quarts expensive?
  • Quartz is one of the most useful natural
    materials. Its usefulness can be linked to its
    physical and chemical properties. It has a
    hardness of seven on the Mohs Scale which makes
    it very durable. It is chemically inert in
    contact with most substances. It has electrical
    properties and heat resistance that make it
    valuable in electronic products. Its luster,
    color and diaphaneity make it useful as a
    gemstone and also in the making of glass. Palash

  • Uses of Quartz in Glass Making- Geological
    processes have occasionally deposited sand that
    are composed of almost 100 quartz grains. These
    deposits have been identified and produced as
    sources of high purity silica sand. These sands
    are used in the glassmaking industry. Quartz sand
    is used in the production of container glass,
    flat plate glass, specialty glass and fiberglass.

  • Uses of Quartz as an Abrasive
  • The high hardness of quartz, seven on the Mohs
    Scale, makes it harder than most other natural
    substances. As such it is an excellent abrasive
    material. Quartz sands and finely ground silica
    sand are used for sand blasting, scouring
    cleansers, grinding media, and grit for sanding
    and sawing.

  • Uses of Quartz as a Foundry Sand -Quartz is very
    resistant to both chemicals and heat. It is
    therefore often used as a foundry sand. With a
    melting temperature higher than most metals it
    can be used for the molds and cores of common
    foundry work. Refractory brick are often made of
    quartz sand because of its high heat resistance.
    Quartz sand is also used as a flux in the
    smelting of metals.

  • Uses in the Petroleum Industry - Quartz sand has
    a high resistance to being crushed. In the
    petroleum industry sand slurries are forced down
    oil and gas wells under very high pressures in a
    process known ashydraulic fracturing. This high
    pressure fractures the reservoir rocks and the
    sandy slurry injects into the fractures. The
    durable sand grains hold the fractures open after
    the pressure is released.

  • Many Other Quartz Sand Uses
  • Quartz sand is used as a filler in the
    manufacture of rubber, paint and putty. Screened
    and washed, carefully sized quartz grains are
    used as filter media and roofing granules. Quartz
    sands are used for traction in the railroad and
    mining industries. These sands are also used in
    recreation on golf courses, volleyball courts,
    baseball fields, children's sand boxes and
    beaches.

  • Uses of Quartz Crystals
  • High quality quartz crystals are single-crystal
    silica with optical or electronic properties that
    make them useful for specialty purposes. USGS
    estimates that about ten billion quartz crystals
    are used every year.

  • Quartz as a Gemstone
  • Quartz makes an excellent gemstone. It is hard,
    durable and usually accepts a brilliant polish.
    Popular varieties of quartz that are widely used
    as gems include amethyst, citrine, rose quartz,
    and aventurine. Agate and jasper are also
    varieties of quartz with a microcrystalline
    structure.

  • Special Silica Stone Uses
  • "Silica stone" is an industrial term for
    materials such as quartzite, novaculite and other
    microcrystalline quartz rocks. These are used to
    produce abrasive tools, deburring media, grinding
    stones, hones, oilstones, stone files, tube-mill
    liners and whetstones.

  • Quartz used in clocks -Quartz maintains a precise
    frequency standard, which helps regulate the
    movement of the clock, making the timepieces very
    accurate. Quartz is used mainly in jewelry and
    ornaments. Some people attribute medical healing
    properties to quartz crystals but this remains
    unproven.
