Can samadhi quartz be grown in a lab?

Quartz can be grown in a lab but may be the lab has to be high in the Himalayan Mountains.

Nomi, for beginning, you should to explain, what is "samadhi quartz" in your oppinion?
David Von Bargen November 09, 2018 10:49AM
Maybe rose quartz crystals.

This looks like a slightly rusty natural quartz to me https://www.healingcrystals.com/Pink_Himalayan_Samadhi_Quartz_Clusters__Himalayan_.html but I see no reason why Samadhi quartz could not be artifically grown in a lab in the Himalayans.

I would have expected it to be more brown in colour, if the volume of BS in those links is taken into account.

it's just rusty quartz, junk, who would want it?

The name is just more metaphysical hooey for these natural occurring specimens... Basically non-sense, for what looks like typical iron-oxide quartz, of which the Himalaya's have in abundance... There would be no reason for someone to fake these when it is far cheaper to have them mined in the mountains... The Chinese are more interested in faking colors like purple, red and green, but I bet you they've made some in similar colors...

Nomi, "samadhi quartz " is a commercial term. It's a second grade quartz designed for crystal healers. Like "wratislavia quartz", "amarantine power quartz" or "marylandium quartz" - all these, made by me today, and consist of ordinary quartz.

And yes, you can grow quartz in lab.

If you know more about real quartz, here the link: https://www.mindat.org/min-3337.html
