Ultimately, quartz is composed of silicon and oxygen but the types are further broken down based on their structure and colour. It is easy to identify many of these by the inclusion of quartz in their name (rose, smokey, milky, rutilated). However, you may be surprised to learn that there are other commonly known minerals which are also part of this family. Those varieties include amethyst, citrine, chalcedony, carnelian, agate, aventurine, onyx, jasper, tigereye and prasiolite. Pure quartz is colourless and transparent with no impurities or inclusions.
