WHAT IS SMOKY QUARTZ? Smoky quartz is often mistaken for topaz. The colors come in all shades of brown from very light tan to almost black, translucent to opaque. The brown color comes from natural radiation that interacts with aluminum traces. This process occurs over a period of several million years, with longer time frames creating darker shades. Smoky quartz is known to be found in larger sizes plus it is a tough stone that does not break easily, making it a very popular precious stone that is used in jewelry making.
