Tanzurine

This page kindly sponsored by Ariel Treasures
A trademarked name for what appears to be several different coloured varieties of massive quartz. It is described as a variety of quartz in various online sales listings but without any proof of analysis, although there is little reason to doubt this.

Both red and green 'varieties' have been listed online. It is possible that these may be better classified as quartzite than quartz as some of the photos of this material show banding and oriented mica flakes.
