Quartz

Quartz is the second most common mineral (12%) found in the earth's crust. A wide variety of common gemstones, including Agate, Amethyst, Citrine, Jasper, Tiger Eye, and Onyx are all members of the quartz family. Ancient Greeks believed that rock crystal quartz was fossilized ice, and many scientists continued to believe this until the 16th century. Most quartz on todays market is lab grown, not to be confused with synthetic.

Czech Druks

Czech Druk or Round BeadsCzech druk beads are round pressed glass treasures manufactured in the age old Czech tradition by Jablonex, the World's top name in glass beads. Druk beads are consistently uniform in shape and size, and are available in nearly innumerable finish and color combinations. Druk beads are widely used in numerous jewelry designs, and are the perfect combination of quality and economy. These popular and versatile Czech glass beads are hand made in small batches, so some slight color variance is to be expected from batch to batch and size to size.
