A piece of Smoky Quartz with a lovely translucent color which has been polished into a softly faceted point. This piece would also be suitable to be used as a pendulum.
Smoky quartz is a grey, brown translucent variety of quartz. It ranges in clarity from almost complete transparency to a dark brownish-gray crystal that is almost opaque. Some can also be black. Like other quartz gems, it is a silicon dioxide crystal. The smoky color results from free silicon, formed from the silicon dioxide by natural irradiation.
