~~~ The transparent, colorless variety of quartz is known as rock crystal. Long ago, people believed that rock crystal was a compact form of ice. The best rock crystal has the clarity and shimmer of water.
Rock crystal has often been used in jewelry, particularly carved pieces. Many stunning art deco jewelry designs featured the black and white quartz combination of rock crystal and onyx. Colorless quartz crystals have also become popular in jewelry due to the popularity of legends about their powers. Many people believe that wearing quartz crystals benefits their health and spiritual well-being. ~~~
