Our Colombian Quartz comes from the Department of Santander where Thomas and his Colombian partner originally discovered it in the early 1980’s and mined there for five years. Today they buy from independent miners who have followed in Thomas’ footsteps.
Crystal Springs Mining and Jewelry Company is the only legal exporter of Colombian Quartz.
Colombian Quartz is considered unique for its clarity, brilliance and long crystals. The crystals can vary from needle size to 4″ in diameter and can be long and thin with a variety of sizes on the quartz clusters.
