This is because it belongs to the cubic group of minerals where the refractive index of light is common in all orientation.

The velocity of light is the same in all directions.

Under normal conditions of temperature and pressure the mineral Quartz is a crystalline solid.

diamond forms an atomic (network) solid. i am not sure what quartz from tho, sorry.

No. Quartz is silicon dioxide (SiO2) and is a crystalline solid

Quartzite is sandstone that has been converted into a solid quartz rock.

quartz is in solid form while sand in ppt

The metals, properties of which are the same when taken through any direction.. As in, if u consider quartz, it'd have different attributes when u conduct tests in different directions.. If there is any metal in which the properties r the same for all directions, it is called an isotropic metal!

see if it has any solid quartz in it . Quartz makes it worth nothing.

Formula for the volume Expansion for a solid is αV=1VdVdT and Isotropic materials is αV=3αL.

Technically no. Glass is an amorphous solid that contains silica, but not in crystalline form. Quartz is crystalline silica.

"Smelt Quartz" is commonly sold as a variety of quartz, especially from many eBay vendors. "Smelt Quartz" is not quartz at all -- it is common glass, which is made from melting quartz in the presence another compound (called a flux) which lowers the melting temperature. Glass is not crystalline, whereas quartz and other minerals (with few exceptions) are crystalline. Most people can't tell the difference, but glass is optically isotropic (doesn't polarize light) whereas quartz is anisotropic (polarizes light). Glass also has a lower density, which you might be able to detect by its heft, and "smelt quartz" usually has unnatural looking streaky patches in it."

Aluminium and steel are e.g. of isotropic materials.

Solid surface is plastic resins and ATH (a hydrate of aluminum powder). Quartz is solid surface and quartz chips. Granite is anything they dig out of the ground and want to sell you. Solid surface can be repaired, doesn't stain, the sinks are seamless,and the seams are usually invisible. And it has a warranty.

Granite is a solid, an igneous rock containing the minerals feldspar, quartz, mica, and inosilicates.

The meaning of isotropic is with identical properties independent on the direction.

Concrete is an isotropic material with different strength properties with respect to the type of imposed loadings.

An omnidirectional antenna can be practically implemented but an isotropic antenna cannot be implemented practically. An isotropic antenna resembles an ideal antenna with ideal values for all parameters.

No. If it is a fluid, it would not fit the requirement of a mineral in being a solid.

Both have their advantages, and when quartz tops reach the point of incorporating sinks, it will be preferable, albeit more costly than solid surface Corian.

Sand is a network solid. This is because it is composed of small grains of quartz. These solids have high melting points and are non conducting.

The solid mixture that granite is made of consists of three materials. This mixture is usually made of feldspar, mica, and quartz.
