The Crystal System...

Smokey Quartz has a trigonal crystal system and is in the mineral class of oxides. It's smokey color comes from the traces of aluminum, lithium and the influence of radioactivity lodged between the layers of its structure.

Like most quartz, it is formed hydrothermally, mainly in hollows that have been formed by gas bubbles in ancient volcanic rock. It is most commonly found in the Alps where there seems to be a relationship between the elevation of the source and the darkness of the crystals.


Smokey Quartz works best when worn where the crystals are in touch with the body. In situations of stress, try holding two polished or rough crystals (one in each hand) and relief should follow. To assist in dissolving pain, crystals may be laid directly on the part of the body that is affected.
