A common material found in dabbing nails, such as in a quartz banger. Quartz can withstand high temperatures for longer periods of time, making it ideal for dabbing.
What is quartz?
Quartz is silicon Dioxide (SiO2), also known as clear-fused quartz or fused silica. It is a solid, amorphous (non-crystalline) material comprised of silicon and oxygen. While similar to traditional glass, quartz is distinct in that it contains no other materials.
In order to create fused quartz, pure silica sand containing quartz crystals must be melted or fused. This purity gives quartz a high thermal conductivity, and it’s also often used in laboratory-grade materials.
What is a quartz banger?
Quartz bangers are popular among dabbers. It is a bucket-style nail—also called a “banger”—that is made out of quartz. Cannabis concentrates are placed in a quartz banger, heated, and then inhaled.
Quartz is great for low-temperature dabbing, which preserves terpenes and flavors more than regular dabbing.
