Quartz beads are cut from this very common, clear, silicon dioxide-based stone. Silicon dioxide is also the base of many stone beads such as amethyst and citrine. The color is determined by the additional minerals included with the silicon dioxide. Here at Thomason Stone Supply, we carry many shapes and sizes of this classic stone bead.
Pure Clear Quartz is the most common mineral on earth. The word Crystal comes from krystallos (clear ice in Ancient Greek) Celestial water from the heavens that the deities froze so it would never melt.
