Whats the boiling point of Clear Quartz?

Can anyone tell me the boiling point of clear rock quartz crystal in degrees F?

I'm trying to debunk a miners claim that his naturally formed quartz crystals have "titanium gas inclusions" which would seem impossible. I would think that the almost 6000 degrees F needed to turn titanium into a gas would also destroy the clear quartz points. I doubt that a quartz forming hydrothermal vug could even produce such a temp.
