One of the most common minerals, quartz comes in many varieties and colors. The two main categories are macrocrystalline—which are usually transparent, and crystals are visible—and cryptocrystalline, which appear translucent or opaque. The many varieties of quartz each offer distinct characteristics and, according to folklore, their own powers and purposes.
