Volcano Cherry Quartz is a man-made gemstone though to call it a gemstone is the subject of a lot of debate including using the word quartz. The origins of Volcano cherry quartz is the far east, at best it will be quartz or chalcedony melted with added proprietary ingredients for colour and optical properties. As I understand it, this process would still render it to be glass and that’s why I have tagged it as such.
This all said it is still makes a very spectacular heart pendant and you should not let the semantics put you off. I include it for information and so you know exactly what your purchasing should you buy it.
