Quartz comes in a huge variety of colours, and smoky quartz is probably the third most recognizable mineral that bears the name, after clear quartz and rose quartz. It is made mainly of silicone dioxide, which is the main component in sand (quartz crystals are basically huge grains of sand). The distinctive dark colour of smoky quartz comes from free silicone deposits in it. The depth and consistency of the crystal’s colour depends on the quantity of free silicone in it.When it is extremely dark and almost opaque, it is called morion (which is also the name for smoky quartz in both German and Spanish).
Smoky quartz is found all over the world, yet it does not enjoy the cultural prestige that many crystals, even its own sister clear quartz, have gained over the centuries.
