Rock Crystal Quartz

Rock crystal is the name given to all clear colorless quartz andย  is the transparent variety of the silica mineral quartz that is valued for its clarity and total lack of colour or flaws. Vessels and spheres have been carved from large crystals since ancient times, and the application of the word crystal to fine glassware derives from this practice. Rock crystal formerly was used extensively as a gemstone (usually brilliant-cut), and although the resemblance to diamond is remote, the widespread use of colourless quartz in jewelry gave rise to the use of the word diamond …

Rock crystal is an alternate and traditional birthstone for the month of April.

My fascination for this stone lead me to create jewelry that mimics as well as make the most out of its sparkly beauty!
