This is true, Diamonds are more commonly found than quartz, but due to hording, the tradition associated with them, and their dazzling sparkle their
value is much higher. In the gem world it really does not mean much in regards to rarity(in this case its size is what gives it its rarity). I have
several pieces of Ahowhite(sp?) that are basically worthless save them being a crystal, but they are extremely rare. They were found in a single mine
in a single location. They were found in great numbers to begin with and sold for just a few dollars a piece, but the mine dried up and it is not
found anywhere making them one of the rarest crystals on Earth, but alas they are still only worth a few dollars a piece. I can't even find info on
the net on them(at least at this point but I will keep looking). They are clear crystalline minerals with naturally rounded edges. They grow in the
natural crystal formation of points, but have no hard corners and contain what looks like ribbons of blue flowing through them.
Edit to add: I will dig one out a bit later and take as good a picture as I can and post it here in this thread as an example.
