Hey, I am an amateur in the field of physics and geology, and I have a question related to quartz. I read about the properties of minerals and came across the term "charge" associated with certain minerals. So, I was curious and wanted to know if quartz is negatively charged or not? Do minerals have a potential to carry an electric charge? Also, I would like to know more about the electrical properties of quartz, if any. Can anyone please help me with my query? Thanks in advance!
