Lodolite exists in patterns suggestive of gardens, landscapes, and underwater scenes. The colorations of the stone can remind one of a rose garden - rose, mossy green, burgundy, cream, and amber. Lodolite is mined exclusively in Southeastern Brazil. It is a trade name, and also known as Garden Quartz and Landscape Quartz. Lodolite can also be spelled Lodalite and Lodelite.
Lodolite is a quartz with inclusions. These inclusions could be iron oxide or hematite, but many types exist and inclusion types will vary from bead to bead. Quartz is a silicon dioxide, and the most common mineral in the Earth’s crust. Transparent quartz has a macrocrystalline structure, meaning crystals and grains are visible to the eye.
Many believe that quartz stones are associated with healing.
