Here's one time when smoke "gets in your eyes" and you love it. Alluring smoky quartz, named for its smoky color, is formed when rock crystal is irradiated. That usually occurs at high altitudes which is why its most notable sources are Brazil, Colorado and the Swiss Alps. (Its frequent inclusions of rutile needles, by the way, do not affect its quality.) These beads are so versatile, you can use them in a variety of ways. Tumble myriad shapes and sizes of smoky quartz beads together in twisted multiple strands. Mix them with gold or silver beads (or both). Add a dash of red. Be inventive in your combinations. Dark colors are still its basic colors. You can't pick a more practical and beautiful gemstone for your new jewelry creations than the lovely, evocative dark crystal-smoky quartz.
