Quartz is one of the most abundant single minerals on earth. It makes up close to 12 percent of the earth's crust, and occurs in a wide variety of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. It is also the most diverse gemstone in terms of varieties, colors forms and has been used for thousands of years. Kunzite is a beloved gemstone, known for its soothing and serene soft lilac color. However, this pricy gemstone is also known for its perfect cleavage, which makes it extremely difficult for jewelers to cut. Kunzite's propensity to fade in the sunlight also makes it a difficult gem selection for many jewelry pieces. We have worked with gemstone experts to develop a stone that combines the beauty of kunzite with the strength and availability of quartz. African lilac quartz is exclusive to us, and we are proud to bring our customers this elegant and stylish gemstone at an accessible low price. African lilac quartz undergoes a unique coloring process applied to high quality clear quartz crystals. After color treatments, the quartz is converted into a triplet, a process that secures the colored stone under protective clear and natural crystal. This new three-layered stone is more resistant to impact and scratching than the original stone. Because of this highly involved process, few retailers can afford to offer this unique variation of quartz. African Lilac quartz is fine transparent quartz that sparkles brilliantly as light passes through the stone uninterrupted. This stunning gemstone is best viewed in daylight, especially during the golden hour, that period shortly after sunrise or just before sunset.
While jewelry quality quartz can be found in Africa, Madagascar, India, and the United States, the best quality and most brilliant natural clear quartz crystals are found in Brazil. We source clear quartz crystals gemstones from Brazilian mines, and we have taken our stones through a unique coloring process to display this highly desired soft lilac hue.
