History
Quartz is known and used since prehistoric times for the creation of many tools. It was especially popular in Europe where it was used in carvings, jewelry, and where it was the mostly revered and popular crystal.
In other cultures, such as ancient Egypt, people buried their dead with quartz upon the forehead to help them guide the departed safely into the afterlife. In ancient Japan quartz was used in scrying and crystal quartz spheres were considered representative of the heart of a dragon. They represented power and wisdom.
Furthermore, the word ‘crystal’ is derived from the Greek word for ‘ice’ and until the 1500’s people believed that clear quartz were an eternal ice sent from the Heavens. Similarly and also much earlier, Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder also believed that quartz was water permanently frozen after great lengths of time. He supported this idea by saying that quartz is found only near glaciers in the Alps.

Properties
Quartz possesses a really cool physical quality called piezoelectricity. It means that quartz can accumulate an electric charge. Once this quality was discovered scientists went nuts and tried for many years to create a synthetic version of quartz. But why you would ask? Well, it turns out that piezoelectricity is quartz’s superpower. Once it was discovered, quartz’s ability to store an electric charge was applied and used for the creation of an oscillator which converts direct current into an alternating current. Oscillators are widely used in many electronic devices. So here you go…you can thank quartz for the wide availability of electricity and the everyday use of machinery. Nowadays, quartz can be found in microphones, computer memory chips, radio receivers and transmitters, ultrasound devices, and watches.
