Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Quartz
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Crystal
Origin (Country): Brazil

Beautiful polished rock-crystal sphere from Brazil.

The name "rock-crystal" is derived from the Greek word "Krustallos" which means ice. It was believed that rock crystal was ice shaped by the gods.
At the time of the Mesolithic, rock-crystal was already known. During the Roman era it was brought on the market from the Alps under the name "petrified ice". Theophrastus called it "krystallos". Pliny the elder also makes mention of this. The name "Quartz" was introduced in 1529 by Georgius Agricola. The peoples from the East regarded rock crystal as stone of patience and perfection. Tibetans use clear quartz to treat wounds.
The choice of rock crystal as a drinking glass or as part of medieval jewellery can be attributed to the belief that these crystals would break or change colour when they came into contact with poison. Thus the chain became an amulet that protected the king.

    Étant absent durant la livraison, j'ai retrouvé mon colis étiqueté fragile jeté par dessus mon portail. Le rembourrage du colis a permis de le protéger correctement, évitant de ce fait la catastrophe.
