What Are Fire And Ice Quartz?
Fire and ice quartz is a type of quartz crystal that contains both red and blue tones. It’s a relatively rare variety of quartz and is prized for its unique coloring.
The name “fire and ice quartz” comes from the fact that the two colors are said to represent the opposing elements of fire and water.
Sometimes, this quartz is also known as ‘crackle quartz’ because when you hold it up to the light, you’ll see tiny fractures or ‘cracks’ running through the crystal.
These are known as ‘inclusions’, and they occur when other minerals are present during the formation of the quartz crystal. Spiritually speaking, this beautiful crystal is said to possess a variety of powerful properties.
It’s a fantastic crystal for balancing emotions and is said to be particularly helpful in times of stress or anxiety. This beautiful stone also has a long and fascinating history which I love.

Where Is Fire And Ice Quartz Made?
Fire and ice quartz can actually be found in a variety of locations around the world. It is most commonly found in Brazil but can also be found in Madagascar, Australia, and the United States.
The crystal is made from a type of silicon dioxide known as quartz. Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth’s crust and is found in a variety of rocks and minerals. It’s made by combining silicon and oxygen atoms together.
It’s made similar to other crystals in the sense that quartz is heated to very high temperatures and then cooled exceptionally quickly. This effect can be produced by hand by heating crystals and then submerging them in cold water.
When it comes to forming a ‘fire’ or ‘ice’ quartz, both colors can be found in the crystal at the same time.
The intensity of these colors depends on what minerals and substances are around the quartz at the time of heating and how quickly it’s cooled, thus how many crackles form within the stone.
