    What is? The Swarms of Quartzites? Those look overpowering. What if they could climb up blocks like spiders too? *Gulp* 
    Having enough Quartz is not a problem, and the pillars of Quartz are pretty rare. Perhaps when you break some Quartz Blocks or Quartz Powder in this biome, Quartzites might come out like silverfish.

    to prevent this from being too op I think that it should be, at MOST a 3x/z 1y and 2z/x chunks in size considering the new 3d biome gen. also the if the pillars gave 1-2 crystals per block this would also be a welcome nerf

    Quartz is annoying running into when digging in the nether for ancient debris. I think NOBODY would complain about quartz only being found in a specific biome...

    Maybe this biome could also be the only place to find other variations of quartz like Amethyst, Citrine, Parasiolite, Smoky Quartz, and Rose Quartz. Also, I think that the variations of quartz would also just be for building like normal Nether Quartz. Also, so the names of all the varieties could fit together, Nether Quartz could be renamed to White Nether Quartz. Also the rest of the quartz varieties would have Nether at the start of their name (Nether Amethyst, Nether Citrine, ect.).

    Perhaps one new type of Quartz for this biome, but we don't need that many ores. What is SO OP about this? Perhaps if the Quartz Pillars were built out of a new Quartz Block or type of Quartz, this "OPness" of having more excessive Quartz could be limited.
    I wasn't thinking Quartz would be eliminated in other areas of the nether (another comment), though cutting the Quartz found in other areas by like half might be good as long as xp given by Quartz is increased by around x2. Quartz in other biomes is needed for xp grinding, as its a great way to get xp (and should be made better)!

    I had an idea to go along with the biome, The Silithops. Its name comes from Silica (an elemental compound found in quartz) and Lithops (a plant). A Silithops is a plant that is based off of the real world plant Lithops. Lithops is sometimes referred to as “The living rock” due to its rock like appearance. I thought that maybe this plant could be found in the more elevated parts of the quartz desert and come in all the colors of quartz that GeckoNova1021 suggested. Also, I think due to its quartz like properties, you would have to mine it to obtain it. Its purpose would only be for decoration because I cannot think of any use at the moment.
