Milky Quartz is pure white, either opaque or translucent, and owns its color to tiny bubbles of air or water contained within the Quartz. When other impurities, such as Iron, slightly color the crystal, it is known as Common Quartz. Areas of increased milkiness often occur towards the base of Clear Quartz crystals – again the result of tiny air or water bubbles.
