Food for thought... Quartz VS Quartzite
Quartz and quartzite are minerals that have many useful purposes. These two minerals are found in abundance in the earth’s crust. However, these two minerals have many differences between them.
The main component of quartz is silica or silicon dioxide. It is comprised of oxygen and silica. Quartzite is formed due to the metamorphism of quartz sandstones.
In terms of color, the two have different colors. Quartz comes in different colors including white, smoky yellow, rose, violet, yellow, opaque and brown. On the contrary, Quartzite comes in snowy white or gray color. It also comes in light colors depending on the impurities present in the parent sandstone.
When talking of the availability, quartz is more common since it is found in more areas than quartzite. Quartz is found in large quantities in the Alps, Madagascar, Brazil, Japan, New York and Arkansas. On the contrary, quartzite is largely found in the Appalachian Mountains, Texas, Utah and Minnesota.
