Caption: Quartz crystals. Quartz or silicon dioxide (SiO2) photographed under blue light. Quartz is one of the commonest minerals in the Earth's crust (12% by volume). The pure, colourless variety is also known as rock crystal and is used as a gemstone and highly prized by collectors. When it contains impurities, these impart a range of colours including white, yellow, pink, blue, green and smoky brown.
