These manmade "quartz" glass beads are not pressed or molded, rather they are individually carved using the same lapidary techniques as gemstone beads.
CRYSTAL QUARTZ: derives its name from the German word "Quarz". It is the second most common mineral in the Earth’s continental crust. Quartz goes by an array of different names. The most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macrocrystalline (individual crystals visible to the unaided eye) and the microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline varieties (aggregates of crystals visible only under high magnification), often referred to as "Chalcedony."
Crystal Quartz is the most common of all Quartz varieties. In its natural form, it is more often referred to as "Rock Quartz." This colorless, transparent gemstone has a simple beauty. While Crystal "Rock Quartz" is naturally occurring, this gemstone can also be duplicated and is occasionally manmade or "lab-grown", which is chemically and visually identical to the mineral found in nature. Much like a Cubic Zirconia is to a Diamond.
Crystal Quartz is said to be a stone of harmony and power, with the ability to bring the energy of the stars into the soul. It is believed to stimulate brain function, help with clarity of the mind, dispel negativity and facilitate healing.
