Tangerine Quartz Points (Brazil) Tangerine Quartz comes from the Santinho mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. These Tangerine Quartz Points have a natural orange color and a sweet vibration. These Tangerine Quartz Points have great formations, however many of the points do have some nicks and scratches on them.
The orange color on these Natural Tangerine Quartz Points from Brazil comes from the presence of Hematite and water in the cavity where they grew. Slowly over time, the water combined with Hematite to create rust that permanently bonded to the surface of the crystals. The combination creates a wonderfully unique natural quartz crystal.
