The White Quartz Mountains were crystalline mountain peaks. They were the site of the village of Iconox. To the north, the mountains were home to dangerous bio-mechanical iron wolves who served a wounded ice warrior named Surel. The White Quartz Mountains were the only viable route to the north, due to the Skrall domination of the Black Spike Mountains. However, the harsh winter weather and the presence of the ice Element Lord made it a difficult and dangerous trip.
The White Quartz Mountains were located at the northwestern edge of the desert of Bara Magna. Contained within the region were Iconox and, in the southeast, Elbow Peak. To the southeast was Gatherers Ridge and, south of that, the forested region surrounding Tesara.[2, 3]
