Mystic Quartz Information

Mystic Quartz is a natural white quartz that has been coated giving it a beautiful rainbow colour effect. It is a not a natural but an enhanced gem. Since the treatment is a coating it is not permanently enhanced but while it lasts produces a kaleidoscope of colours.

Other Features:

Mystic Quartz is quite probably the most attractive mineral on the world. It is extremely versatile and can be used in many types of jewelery. This natural gem is then treated, giving it its mystic color and the name “mystic quartz.”

The treatment begins with colourless quartz, the cut and polished quartz is coated with an extremely thin titanium film that bonds with quartz at the molecular level. Very little heat is involved in the process. The coating is permanent, but if part of the crystal chips off or is broken the natural color of the stone will show.

The cost,value, and quality of these treated gems are only as good as the company who provides the technology to enhance the gem. There are Multiple companies who offer a patent technique for this type of gemstone enhancement.

As always buyer beware. If you buy a premium grade gem with coating from a company offering a patent on this technique you will buy a gem that will last a life time with proper care. If you buy a gem that was not made by a a patent company then you may very well receive a gem with poor quality enhancement and the gem is likely to loose color or the coating may even peel off.

**Mystic quartz and topaz are confused with many other gems due to the large quantity of synthetic quartz and gems on the market today. One of the most recently gems to be confused with Mystic quartz is Azotic quartz, Azotic is a patent treatment applied to many types of gemstones not only quartz so be careful when using the Term Azotic and Mystic. If a quartz gemstone were treated by Azotic it would then be called Azotic quartz.
