PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Madagascar is mined fairly extensively for natural quartz specimens. The best deposits yield optic to near optic white to smokey crystals. Specimens are mostly small crystals in complex and dense arrangements either having a plate or vug appearance. The material is both ethically and sustainably mined. All our Malagasy Quartz specimens are mined by 3rd and 4th generation miners. Material is mostly intact but damage can be expected depending on the grade of the specimens. Irrespective of some damage the material has mostly been through a round of acid cleaning. On rare occasions some haematoid colouration remains evident on some specimens.

We recently obtained 7 tons of material from Madagascar! This is the total production of a handful of mines decimated by Covid. Unfortunately, the pandemic has done some serious damage to mining operations in Madagascar. The breakdown of distributional channels and total ban of international visitors for several years has been challenging to say the least. Every single batch of quartz we sell have been physical inspected, graded and priced accordingly. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
