Good tidings, human. We are The Pigs. We are here to grant you with the knowledge of a mineral with great power. It is Quartz. Come, hop on our carts and we may speak.
You see, my friend, Quartz is a special mineral, near and dear to our hearts. It is used in television electronics, like the one I bought last week. It is also a rather durable material, having a hardness rating at a whopping seven. Lovely! Quartz comes in a variety of colors, ranging from pink to grey, caused by ferric iron. While it is used for electronics and time-keeping, people also use it for glass making and foundry sand.
You see that bridge? The tan support blocks made of stone have Quartz in them. Quartz belongs to a subgroup of minerals within the silicates group called Tectosilicates. Also in the group is Opal, a mineral with 6 hardness, and Danburite, a mineral with 7 hardness.
Hey look, a bird.
You may notice that many objects that have Quartz are in specific shapes or sizes. When Quartz is in its original state, it is a "fracture" with no specific shape or size, and is vitreous. This pole most likely has Quartz in its supports, as well as the bridge we observed earlier.
That's really cool, Twitter Tweeter.
Greetings. I am the Twitter Tweeter. Users of Twitter use computers with Quartz to power the desktops. Quartz is also used to keep the time on these computers with silicate material.
Unfortunately, our time together must come to an end. We will see another day hopefully in the near future. We hope you learned alot about our favorite mineral, Quartz. Blessed travels, human
