Quartz with copper minerals refers to a type of rock that contains both quartz and minerals that contain copper, such as chalcopyrite, bornite, and malachite. These rocks can form through a variety of processes, including hydrothermal alteration of copper-bearing rocks and the precipitation of copper minerals from hot fluids circulating through fractures in quartz-rich rocks. These types of rocks can be found in copper-mining districts around the world.
Clear quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the world and is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. It can be found in many forms such as tumbled, carved and rough. It can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. Clear quartz is thought metaphysically to promote understanding, clarity, and is associated with inner strength.
