Quartz crystals are chiral. It exist in two forms. The normal α-quartz and the high-temperature β-quartz. The transformation from α-quartz to beta-quartz takes place abruptly at 573 °C (846 K). Since the transformation is accompanied by a significant change in volume. It can easily induce fracturing of ceramics. Or rocks passing through this temperature limit.
