Formula : SiO2
Quartz is the most abundant and most common mineral on the Earth. It is found in almost every geological environment and also it 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 of macrocrystalline, which is individual crystal visible to the unaided eye, and the other is microcrystalline or cryptodrystalline varieties, aggregates of crysstals 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.

Grades of Quartz Powder :
Normal : This is the widely used grade of Quartz Powder. Silica content here is in the range of 95% to 97 %. This is the cheapest grade available.
White Grade : Silica content here is in the range of 97% to 98%
Snow White Grade : Silica content here is in the range of 98% to 99%.
Super Snow White Grade : Silica content here is in the range of 99% to 99.9%.
Super Snow White (Extra White Milky Grade) : Silica content here is in the range of 99.999%
Safety Tips :
A milky white quartz powder requires extraordinary care by the manufacturer, in selection, purity and grading of raw materials and careful packing.
Maintaining this quality to achieve a perfect dryness requires equal care from you, the user, from the moment anymass reaches your factory until the first metal is poured.
Maintain sufficient inventory so that quality lining materials are available at all times. Before you receive thequartz powder, set aside a clean permanently dry area in the stores , away from coal dust , cement boric acid , furnace additives etc, Which are harmful to the powder, if they accidentally spillon the materialbags. Sweep thoroughly and lay down some wooden supports to keep bags away from damp floor.
