Mandarin quartz, also known as tangerine quartz, comes from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. This type of quartz is exceptional for its unique tangerine color, which is a result of the presence of iron on its surface. When mined, mandarin quartz is often found covered with a layer of clay and impurities, which are usually removed using special acid processes. Brilliantly pure white quartz is commonly obtained in this way. However, mandarin quartz does not respond to this cleaning process in the same way and retains its characteristic orange color. This makes mandarin quartz unique worldwide and highly prized among collectors and mineral lovers.
