This large, gorgeous cluster of SMOKY QUARTZ crystals comes from the Jairo Mine in Resplendor, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The smoky color is the result of the radiation of colorless quartz while the crystal is still forming in a semi aqueous solution. At higher temperatures, smoky quartz loses its color, and first turns yellow (citrine), then white (milky). This one came out of a pocket opened during the 2011 mining season, a pocket which produced some exceptionally fine specimens. I acquired this aesthetic specimen from a Brazilian wholesale dealer at the Denver Gem, Rock & Mineral Show.
