Answer:

Well, quartz is mineralized silica.....

Explanation:

i.e. quartz is #SiO_2#....

In contrast to #CO_2#, #SiO_2# is NON-MOLECULAR, and consists of infinite arrays of silicon each bound to 2 oxygen atoms.....etc.

Finely powdered silicon dioxide is used in the laboratory as silica gel, which is the primary material for chromatography and separation.
