Smoky Quartz Physical Properties
Smoky quartz is a microcrystalline variety of the mineral Quartz (SiO2). Smoky quartz can occur as secondary quartz crystals on cryptocrystalline quartz in cavities and vugs forming geodes. The characteristic colour of smoky quartz occurs in nature when rock crystal quartz is exposed to natural radiation from radioactive elements or adjacent radioactive rocks over long periods of time. The process by which this occurs is not completely understood; although it is known that exposure of transparent quartz to radiation can alter the oxidation states of impurities in the quartz structure resulting in the characteristic colours of smoky quartz. Subsequent heating reverses this process.
