Today I have a brand new set of free natural quartz textures from Iceland’s largest stone collection. Quartz is a mineral made out of silicon and oxygen. With many varieties of quartz minerals found around the world, this particular one is called rock crystal.
The Romans believed quartz to be water ice, permanently frozen after great lengths of time. At that time this precious mineral was very fashionable and used in jewelry and elegant stone carvings. In early 19th century the electronic industry had become dependent on quartz crystals and today virtually all quartz crystals used in modern electronics are synthetic.
The crystal textures are a bit rough as they are straight from nature and displayed outside for the visitors of the stone museum. There were some clean & polished quartz stones inside the museum store but they were small and it was a bit too dark to get some good shots of them.
Hopefully you can find some good use for these quartz textures. Let me know if you like them.
