How do you open a quartz?

    Assuming you mean “how do you break open a quartz Geode”, the best way is to use a hammer and a chisel, and not to saw it open. There are videos and more information in the acocmpanying link.

    I hope this helped!

    Breaking a geode with a hammer is fun, but may cause some damage to the inside crystals if you go through and the chisel rebounds inside.  See if you have a local gem and mineral club (most major cities have at least one) and can maybe use a diamond tipped rock saw.  This method will give you a clean cut which you can later have polished.
