crystal quartz jewelryGlass and lucite cannot imitate the colder than room temperature feel of crystal in a cool atmosphere.  Dye cannot penetrate the quartz structure, but colors are achieved using an ancient process.  Crystal is heated to a high temperature, then doused in cold water, causing tiny fractures.  The dye is absorbed into the fractures, providing color.  Examine the crystals with a magnifying glass and you will see the tiny fractures.  The clear color can also be changed to "smoky topaz" color with a process called gamma irridation.  Find crystal quartz jewelry under gemstone necklaces.
