Since the crafting recipe for Diorite has Nether Quartz in it, there should be a way to extract quartz from it. Note: Quartz is hard to get so this extraction shouldn't replace the main method of getting it in the nether. I reckon quartz should be craftable when putting eight diorite (polished) with a water bucket into a crafting table to receive one piece of quartz. (The water bucket is so that it takes longer for the quartz to be extracted since you can only hold a certain amount or have to keep refilling it so it is still worth going to the Nether.)
