About Smoky Quartz
Smoky quartz is a popular variety of quartz. It has an unusual color for a gemstone and is easily recognized and is well known by the general public. Only a few other brown or black minerals are ever cut for gemstones such as black diamond, smoky topaz, the very rare black beryl or brown corundum. Smoky quartz is also popular as an ornamental stone and is carved into spheres, pyramids, obilisks, eggs, figurines and ornate statues.
There are four varieties of smoky quartz. A very dark brown to black opaque variety is known as morion. It is the German, Danish, Spanish and Polish synonym for smoky quartz.
Cairngorm is a variety of smoky quartz crystal found in the Cairngorm Mountains of Scotland. It usually has a smokey yellow-brown colour, though some specimens are a grey-brown. It is used in Scottish jewellery and as a decoration on kilt pins and the handles of sgian dubhs (anglicised: skean dhu).
Coon tail quartz is a smoky quartz with an alternating black and gray banding, while Gwindel is a smoky quartz cluster of nearly parallel crystals, each rotated slightly relative to the one beside it.
