Quartz are one of the most common crystals on earth. These crystals are found in granite and granite pegmatites which are magma bodies deposited close the earth’s crust and eventually uncovered through surface erosion or continental uplift. The smoky, dark color of the quartz is a result of exposure to natural radiation deep underground. The radiation source is usually naturally occurring uranium, thorium and even potassium isotopes.
