Hey Tiompan, Bawn etc
I'm going by memory, and from a few months back, but in Anthony Murphy (Mythical Ireland)'s book he lists a couple of alternative Irish names for quartz, including I think clocha gealach. Shining stone, moon stone and so on. It also has strong association with, particularly, bronze age monuments in the West Cork area.
