Lodolite Gemstone
Lodolite is a term used for a verity of quartz with mineral inclusions, from Minas Gerais, Brazil. In (Greek) Lodolite means mud stone or stone from the mud. Were not too sure this term applies, all that well to Lodolite. Because Lodolite has the appearance of an underwater coral reef. The mineral inclusions are very attractive and differ from stone to stone. The colors of the inclusions can range from green, pink, yellow, brown, white, red and multi colors. We feel that most of these colors and mixes of colors. Come from three main types of minerals, Chlorite, Iron, and calcite.

Quartz includes a variety of stones and colorless, or crystal quartz is the most common. Brazil is a major supplier of crystal quartz. Especially when it
comes to verities with mineral inclusions. Quartz is found abundantly throughout the world, including in the United States. The word "crystal" comes from the Greek word for "ice" and was believed to be eternally frozen. The single quartz crystal is a six-sided prism, however this is not always how it is formed. Sometimes it is found in veins, seams, or pockets containing the massive variety.
