Lodolite is a naturally occurring fusion of Clear Quartz with organic matter, chemically classified as a silicate with intermediate minerals as inclusions. 

It measures 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Its chemical composition is Si02, and it has a hexagonal crystalline structure.

The stone often has a vitreous luster and is transparent to translucent. The clear to hyper-clear appearance, magnifies a variety of inclusions from, red, cream, orange, green, brown, white, yellow, golden, purple, or blue. They may come from Chlorite, Hematite, Pyrite, Rutile, Feldspar, Iron Oxides, Kaolinite, or Sulphur. 

All these minerals paint the inside of  Lodolite crystals with the appearance of scenic landscapes, underwater vistas, mountains, forests, smoke, and gardens. That’s also why they’re usually cut into slabs and cabochons to highlight the inclusions. It is referred to by many names, including, Scenic Quartz, Garden Quartz, and White Clay. It is also called the “Frozen Universe” when its inclusions look like the Milky Way Galaxy. Every Lodolite is unique, with no two stones being identical.
