Smokey quartz varies in colour from reddish brown to yellow brown. The colour is caused by aluminium coupled with natural irradiation. The stone is used in both facets and cabochon. Facets increase the colour intensity, while cabochon facilitates the magical likeness of a drop of water. Smokey quartz is a stone that dosen't make a lot of fuss, but has an air of mystery about it.
