GM Dictionary: Geology #7

GM Dictionary: Geology #7

This month I want to cover something that I generally know very little about: geology. Sure I know a bit. Enough to get by. I usually even remember the difference between stalactite and stalagmite. I’ll give you a hint. One holds tight (or tite!) to the ceiling! That being said my vocabulary could use a boost and maybe yours could to so let’s dig in this month’s Dictionary. (Okay I apologize for the puns.)


Quartz is a common crystalline mineral which is chiral, or asymmetric without mirror images being able to superimpose. One of the most abundant minerals on Earth, this has many varieties including many semi-precious gemstones.

This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
