From ore to final product, our quartz is exceptionally pure
melting point of quartz
silica's chemical formula
With few grain-bound inclusions, our quartz is ideally suited for high purity processing. This is thanks to a series of geological process that allowed pegmatites to form almost without impurities.
Raw ore is extracted from the Appalachian Mountains
After the ore is crushed, quartz is isolated from other minerals
Purification of quartz is a journey through multiple process steps and quality controls
Finished product is packed and delivered to customers globally
High purity quartz sand has the distinct physical properties to become a successful crucible. Quartz crucibles are a critical component in the manufacture of photovoltaic cells and semiconductor chips. They are used to grow ingots that are then sliced and polished into ultra-thin wafers.
The journey of our quartz continues to our customers who transform it into crucibles for advanced manufacturing processes
