Quartz is a common gemstone -- 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 varieties. Try matching cherry or rose quartz with beads in our Mocha Rouge Color Set , or combine quartz with glass pearl beads.

What You're Saying About our Quartz Beads
I purchased quartz beads like this at a gem show and was unable to find them any place else until I stumbled upon them at Auntie's Beads. WOW! They are exactly what I was looking for. The colors and the quality of the beads were perfect. These beads definitely make a statement - with or without a pendant.

I absolutely LOVE the multi-color quartz beads. The depth of color and the bead size are just a couple of things I especially like about this strand. They work especially well in necklaces and earrings. I highly recommend this quartz strand.

I love, love, love these quartz nugget beads...I like the varied sizes of each bead, I've had more than one strand and so far I've not had any issues with the bead holes, etc., the colors are great...I've added a pendant as well as restrung and left as is...the necklace alone makes a huge statement!!! Necklaces made from these sell very quickly!!!
