2012-4-24  From quartz to metallurgical grade silicon Silicon is the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust, second only to oxygen. It is naturally found as fairly pure silicon dioxide and as silicates. The silicon dioxide is found as huge deposits of quartzite or quartz sand. Moreover, many rocks contain quartz crystals. Therefore, it

2019-1-19  How Silicon is extracted from quartz? In this plant in Kristiansand the clean quartz is processed into high-purity silicon. The rock is melted in a furnace at 4,000 degrees and the silicon purified even further. The process itself is similar to that used in steel production and is why this molten rock is often referred to as metallurgical silicon.
