Mystic quartz is essentially a clear rock crystal that has been cut and then a very thin layer of titanium has been applied to its surface. Its distinguished from ordinary crystal by its unique blend of purple and green colours.
The array of colours is produced from the application of heat (or sometimes high voltage electricity) to Titanium. The resulting Titanium oxide is bonded to the clear crystal and this produces colours that are similar to a soap bubble except its beauty is permanent.
Titanium was first discovered and mined in Cornwall so its arguable that Mystic quartz is a true Cornish gemstone.
