Smoky quartz is a specific variety of quartz with admixtures of aluminium and iron. These admixtures (and sometimes also irradiation) are responsible for smoky quartz’s colour. The deposits are located in the Alps, Czechia or in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil, which is where our stones are from.

Smoky Quartz uniqueness: Smoky quartz has a smoky brown colour and it varies from dark, semitrasparent to translucent. Sometimes, the colour can be patchy or “cloud-like”.

Druses are aggregates of crystals on the surface of a rock or mineral. Points are big long crystals formed by erosion and desintegration of druses. Product "specimen" refers to

both clusters of a few big crystal points with its druse partially or fully eroded away and classic druse-like formations with or more dominant bigger points. These specimens come from Minas Gerais in Brazil.

Use: Minerals can be charming interior decorations but also valuable pieces of your mineralogical collection.
