Quartz: Removes a random number of affixes from an item. (Codex > Dictionary > Crystals > Disenchant).
Good: Only 1 affix can’t be removed from items with Quartz. Usually only need 1-3 Quartz to remove all affixes from an item.
Bad: You can’t choose which affixes are removed from an item.
Kyanite: Removes a selected affix from an item. (Codex > Dictionary > Crystals > Remove Affix).
Good: You can choose the affix to be removed.
Bad: You remove fewer affixes than Quartz can. 1 Kyanite to remove 1 affix, so it takes 6 Kyanite to remove all affixes from an item.

**I was using Quartz on an item that had a Fortune Myth Stone on it, and discovered that Quartz can take a Myth Stone off of an item. I don’t have many Fortunes, and was glad it wasn’t a Time, Master, Zenith, or Elixor Myth Stone! if you are using Quartz on an item with a Myth Stone you don’t want to lose, use Garnet to take it off first.
