It is a fairly rare and distinctive color. Smoky quartz is a type of macrocrystalline quartz (silicon dioxide), the branch of the quartz family that includes amethyst, citrine and rose quartz. This type of quartz is made up of crystals that are large enough to be discerned by the naked eye.
Macrocrystalline quartz is mainly transparent to translucent, with a vitreous luster. The color of smoky quartz varies. It can be brown, smoky-gray or black.
The characteristic color of smoky quartz occurs when rock crystal quartz is exposed to natural radiation from radioactive elements over long periods of time. The process by which the color change occurs is not entirely understood, though it is known that when transparent quartz is exposed to radiation, the oxidation states of impurities within the quartz structure can be altered.Smoky quartz comes from many sources around the world. A few of the more noteworthy locations include Brazil, the world's largest supplier; the Pikes Peak area of Colorado, USA, where it is associated with green amazonite; and the Swiss Alps, where many tons of fine specimens have been mined.
