Limnoquartzite is a freshwater silica rock formed by a variety of opal or quartz. The name refers to the words limnický (which means lake, freshwater) and quartzite (siliceous rock). They occur in deposits with thermal waters. This piece is from Slovakia.

Limnoquartzite Uniqueness: Limnoquartzite´s brown colour is influenced by iron hydroxides, which are formed by the decomposition of microscopic grains of pyrite, scattered in the surrounding rock. The most beautiful Slovak pieces are from Banské in the Slanské Hills, Slovakia. Limnoquartzite is considered a precious stone thanks to its colour and structure.

Special conditions/ treatment: There is no need for special handling with limnoquartzite.
