Quartz

 

Product Description

 

The chemical composition of quartz includes silicon dioxide, which is the most common metal in igneous rocks and it gains its economic value when found in amounts of highly fine conditions.

The ground material is used in the making of ceramics, but as for the transparent quartz, it is used for electronic purposes and radar as well as optics since certain types of it produce lenses, slices and light prisms.
