Quartz is essential in ceramic and paints, wall coatings, and glass industries. Paint formulators select micron-sized industrial sands to improve the appearance and durability of architectural and industrial paint and coatings. High-purity silica contributes critical performance properties such as brightness and reflectance, color consistency, and oil absorption. Silica fillers improve tint retention, durability, and resistance to dirt, mildew, cracking, and weathering in architectural paints. Low oil absorption allows increased pigment loading for improved finish color. White Quartz Silica Powder is the most abundant and common mineral on the Earth. It is found in almost every geological environment and is at least a component of almost every rock type. It has a hexagonal crystal structure and is made of trigonal crystallized silica. It is most varied in terms of varieties, colors, and forms. The most important distinction between the types of Quartz is that one is macrocrystalline, an individual crystal visible to the unaided eye, and the other is microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline varieties, aggregates of crystals visible only under high magnification. Chalcedony is the generic term for cryptocrystalline Quartz. The transparent variety tends to be macrocrystalline, and the cryptocrystalline varieties are either translucent or mostly opaque. The name "quartz" has been derived from the German "Quarz," a Slavic origin. It is the most common material identified as the mystical substance man in Australian Aboriginal mythology. Pliny the Elder, a Roman naturalist, believed Quartz to be a block of permanent ice. According to him, Quartz is found near glaciers in the Alps, and the crystals of Quartz were fashioned into spheres to cool the hands. He also knew the ability of Quartz to split light into a spectrum. Nicolas Steno's study of Quartz made way for modern crystallography. His discovery states that no matter how distorted a quartz crystal is, the long prism faces always make a perfect 60-degree angle.
