Quartz - one of the most common minerals. It belongs to most rocks - igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Quartz is resistant to decay (rock breakage), so the sand mainly consists of quartz grains, because other less durable minerals are degraded.
In Latvia, quartz is very common as a component of glacial rocks. An attentive and patient searcher can also find tiny quartz crystals formed in small voids in the granite.
