Like the beautiful rays of the sun solidified and gathered around in a garden, its tangerine colors light up any room. Tangerine Quartz is believed to stimulate the joyful energy of the inner child, encouraging playfulness and curiosity, allowing us to learn and grow. This cluster, from Minas Gerais, Brazil, also has a hidden secret enclave of matte blood red quartz hidden beneath! This is where they are formed when the mineral Hematite combines with water.
Hematite is an ironstone that rusts in water. This rust then bonds to the surface of Clear Quartzes, giving the Tangerine Quartz its distinct orange color.
