Evaluation of Marwit Rod El Leqah deposit aspegmatite high purity quartz source for advanced applications was conductedthrough the geological, mineralogical and geochemical studies. Elementalanalysis of a representative quartz sample showed that the quartz deposits wereclassified as medium purity quartz with 99.575% average SiO2 contentand about 0.422% 4220 ppm of accompanied mineral. Field study and petrographyinvestigation using optical polarized transmitted microscope and reflectedlight microscope revealed that these impurities were mainly found as solidparticulates of iron oxide, muscovite, rutile, orthoclase, granitic rafts, andas fluid inclusions as well. Moreover, structural undesirable trace elementswere also presented in the quartz sample.
