QUARTZ2021 - International Symposium on Quartz

The conference gathers petrologists, mineralogists, sedimentologists, economic geologists and mining and processing engineers having one study object in common: quartz. 

Quartz is one of the most abundant rock-forming constituents, which is more and more utilized for the better understanding of petrogenetic processes. Quartz is also a crucial industrial mineral being the raw material for silicon metal and silica glass and their broad applications, such as solar panel manufacturing for the production of renewable energy.
