What does Smoky Quartz do?

Smoky Quartz Crystal
We have a variety of unique smoky quartz forms including tumbled smoky quartz, raw pieces, clusters, spheres, points and more. We also have some smoky quartz jewelry including rings, bracelets and necklaces for everyday wear!
Smoky quartz is a member of the quartz family or crystals.  The name of this crystal comes from its smoky appearance. This is caused by the natural radiation from the soil combined with elements of aluminium within it. The process is truly fascinating and it takes millions of years, the longer the gemstone is unmined the richer the shade will be. People do sometimes try to mimic this type by heat-treating them (I will always note this if I carry this kind).

Smoky Quartz is a silicon dioxide crystal. It’s a particularly durable crystal with a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. It is also known as a piezoelectric gem that can carry electrical charge when exposed to an applied voltage.


What does Smoky Quartz Look Like?

smokey quartzSmoky Quartz is a transparent crystal found in a color range of yellowish-tan to a dark brown that is almost black.  When cut as a gem, stones may have an orangish or reddish tone due to inclusions of iron or hematite. Smoky Quartz will most often be found in large crystals and have a hexagonal shape of 6 sides when it grows as a natural cluster.

A few other identifying factors of smoky quartz are its few inclusions and its coloring. Natural smoky quartz often has a more vibrant or darker coloration in the tips of its points. Additionally, the stone is sensitive to ultraviolet light and will become pale when exposed to sunlight for a long time.

Smoky Quartz is a very common crystal that makes up approximately 12% of the Earth’s crust and is most commonly found in cracks of igneous and metamorphic rocks. The yellowish-brown coloring comes from natural radiation and aluminum impurities.

More often than not, if you see a VERY dark brown almost black colored smoky quartz, it has been irradiated manually (versus the sun) to increase the depth of the color.  Technically this makes it a heat-treated smoky quartz.


Where does Smoky Quartz Come from?

Crystals from this particular place are rarely found, but thankfully this stone is available in many different countries all over the globe. Brazil, Switzerland, Mozambique, the United States and Madagascar are just some of the sources for this beautiful stone.

More About Smoky Quartz

This crystal has a glassy feel and look and is quite hard; it is a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Although hard, It is very brittle. When broken, the pieces of quartz will break in a pattern known as conchoidal fractures. These fractures will be rounded and look like a seashell. This type of fracture is a good identification tool to separate genuine crystals from fake ones.
