Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'm kind of wondering what something like that would look like sliced.  I got a set of marble coasters when I visited India, and I actually think it's a solid piece of quartz without cracks.  I've been looking for quartz that may be worth slicing, but the stuff I come across seems much too cracked and I believe the cracks naturally in the rocks would run through it.  Although the rock in the picture is better than the specimens I find locally, looks as if it would be too cracked to make a set of coaster like I'm thinking.

I have no rock hounding experience worth mentioning, but I did get interested in Quarts when the quarts lamps started to appear a few years ago.
