Quartz is a very common gemstone. In fact, the mineral quartz makes up over 10% of the Earth's crust. Quartz beads are a versatile component in jewelry designs. Other stones like agate, onyx, sard, and jasper are akin to quartz but differentiated by their multicolored bands, while quartz is a single color. Rose quartz, rutilated quartz, and cherry quartz are common colors.
SmartBeadShopping™ Update: For just a hint of the design possibilities, try matching some cherry or rose quartz with beads in our Mocha Rouge Color Set , or try combining quartz with glass pearls beads.
