Quartz

One of India’s leading Quartz Exporters

Quartz is the second most abundant mineral found in the crust of the Earth. Quartz forms at all temperatures and is found in abundance in sedimentary rocks. Quartz is a crystal form of Silica is found in massive forming hills, in various forms like Quartz Sand, Sand Stone, and Quartzite. The common use of Quartz is in Glass, Ceramics, and Refractory. Other uses are to manufacture of Sodium Silicate, Silicon tetrachloride, Ferro Silicon also it is used for water treatment processes.

Quartz, to put simply is a crystallized form of Silica found in various forms and colours.

Although most quartz crystals are colourless and transparent, the presence of slight chemical impurities results in a number of colour varieties such as red hue, pale yellow, brown, gray.

Quartz is naturally occurring raw material and its composition mentioned above is expected to vary. The statements and technical information contained in this document are based on our research as well as research of others.Purchasers are advised to make their own test determine the suitability.

Uses and Characteristics of Quartz :-

Quartz has excellent property of resistance to chemical and mechanical weathering.

This makes quartz as one of the most durable minerals.

Since quartz is mostly found in transparent and colourless form, it is widely used in the glass and ceramic industry.

Furthermore, Quartz being the prime component of sand, it is extensively used in construction and building material.

Indian Minerals has been for over 30 years one of the foremost and trusted supplier of minor minerals such as quartz and sandstone both to domestic and international clients. In a span of three decades Indian Minerals has carved a niche for itself as one of the most preferred exporters of quartz in global markets such as Middle East, Africa, Europe, and South East Asia.
