About Suttroper QuarzHide

A variety of Quartz

Name used for biterminated, milky quartz crystals originally described from Suttrop, Warstein, Sauerland, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. Generally used in the plural form, 'Suttroper Quarze', or more correctly (because Suttrop is not the only locality), Suttrop-type Quartz. These haven been found at various localities in limestones along the northern boundary of the Sauerland and Bergisches Land.

Sometimes called 'Suttroper Diamant' (plural: 'Suttroper Diamanten') or 'Warsteiner Quarz' (plural: 'Warsteiner Quarze'), since Suttrop forms part of the town of Warstein.
