One of the most popular minerals people are familiar with is quartz, perhaps because it can be found in almost all mineral environments. It’s also available in many varieties, forms, and colors, and quite a few of the mineral varieties are color-enhanced. Smoky Quartz is a color variety of a type of crystalline quartz found in light yellowish brown shades, brown, and in some cases almost black.
The nice thing about Smoky Quartz is that its abundance makes it not on the pricey end of gemstones and the stone is beautiful when cut or faceted. It is popularly used in earrings, pendants, bracelets and rings. If you like yellow-brown to brown to accent your wardrobe, Smoky Quartz is an excellent choice!
Most Smoky Quartz used in jewelry today is sourced from Brazil Madagascar as a close second as a prevalent producer of this gem. It is also found in Scotland, where it is the national gem of Scotland, in honor of the Cairngorm Mountains. In the U.S. it has been the official state gem of New Hampshire since 1985.
