Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral with a pure chemical compound and constant physical properties. Quartz is a mineral composed of silica that is also known as clear fused Quartz or fused silica, and is a material that is often used in dabbing nails. Quartz is ideal for dabbing as it can withstand high temperatures for long periods of time. Another name for quartz is silicon Dioxide (SiO2), which has high thermal conductivity and is commonly used in laboratory-grade materials. Quartz is the material used for quartz banger on a dab rig.
