Often called Milky Quartz, the cloudiness of Girasol comes from microscopic inclusions that have been encased in the crystal from the time it first grew.

The tiny minerals that float in the stone create thousands of points of light, hence its name, Girasol, which comes from the Italian, meaning “turn toward the sun.”
