The Encyclopedia of Arkansas explains that commercial mining of quartz is rare and occasionally consists of the use of explosives to first expose the quartz followed by the operation of small hand tools such as chisels and rock picks to extract portions of the mineral from a quarry. Quartz is quite sensitive to temperature changes so miners prefer not to use explosives unless absolutely necessary.
The Minerals Education Coalition explains that quartz is mined primarily in the United States and Brazil. Mined quartz is intended for commercial use in both jewelry and electronics and must therefore undergo an extensive cleansing process which strips the minerals of all chemical impurities and physical flaws.
A man-made form of quartz known as cultured quartz is manufactured to standards of perfection in laboratory settings. This process relies on a small starting source of quartz referred to as a seed crystal upon which further quartz crystals are grown. These seed crystals are difficult to find and are primarily produced by Canada Brazil Germany and Madagascar. The Minerals Education Coalition reports that China South Africa and Venezuela have also been known to provide seed crystals to countries with an interest in manufacturing cultured quartz in a lab.

BARIPADAnbspnbspIllegal quartz stone mining continues unabated in the forests of Sarashkana block in the district even as officials concerned look the other way. nbsp
It is alleged that mafia from West Bengal and Jharkhand in nexus with middlemen and a few officials have been exploiting locals to collect quartz stones. The practice is rampant in Dhakadihi Milkudihi Barudbeda Pusidunguri Uchhagaon-Sunamuhin and Patkia villages of the block. The residents of these villages collect the stones from nearby forests and sell them to the mafia at throwaway prices.nbsp
Sources said three-four trucks enter the forests every day to collect the stones from the villagers. The middlemen encourage the tribals to collect the stones with the lure of augmenting their income. Hit by the lockdown the villagers unable to sell forest produce in markets sold the stones at even lower prices. nbsp nbspThe practice has been continuing for years under the nose of the district administration and officials of Mining department.nbsp
A resident of Patkia said the mafia smuggle the stones from the block through Jamsola check gate and Barudbeda on the border with Jharkhand. He said owing to complicity of officials police personnel and middlemen the stone laden trucks cross the border without any hassles. nbspThe movement of such trucks has damaged the road to Sarashkana.
