In Stardew Valley, one of the many minerals you’ll encounter is Quartz. It’s especially important as it’s part of one of the Community Center bundles. These can be mined from nodes, panned from the rivers, and found strewn about. Once you have some, you can stick them in a furnace to get Refined Quartz, or you can do this the easy way.
Build a recycling machine as soon as you can. This will become available in your crafting menu once you’ve reached fishing level 4 and can be built for 25 wood, 25 stone, and 1 iron bar. Finally, you’ll have a way to turn that trash you get from fishing into something that’s actually valuable. Here are the items you can recycle to get refined quartz:
- Broken CD
- Broken Glasses
Stick those in there, wait an hour, and voila! You’ll be rolling in refined quartz, which can be donated for the Community Center, sold for 50 coins, or to make sturdy rings, crystal paths, crystal floors, lightning rods, and quality sprinklers.
