Colombian Lemurian Quartz Crystals are a type of alpine quartz crystal found in layers of shale in proximity to the famous Muzo Colombian Emerald mines. Known as lemurian quartz crystals by collectors and lightworkers, some of these crystals also exhibit what is called the "muzo habit". Muzo habit crystals have only three sides, not the usual six. Some are perfectly triangular crystals with six-sided bases. Most of the Colombian Lemurian Quartz Crystals are very bright, with alternating clear faces and frosty etched faces. The finest examples are prismatic and highly refractive. This type of quartz has also been found in pegmatites in Minas Gerais, Brazil, and in Switzerland and Russia.
