'Quarz' is a series of crystal tumblers representing perfect mathematical quartz prisms. Quarz references the shape and material from which the tumblers are made, as well as the German spelling of the mineral -'Quarz'- relating to Lobmeyr's Austrian roots.

Each glass is engraved with the artist’s initials beside the Lobmeyr sign.
