Smoky quartz is a glamorous member of the quartz family. Polished quartz produces crystal balls popular for seeing the future, and for centuries people have sworn that quartz promotes serenity and good health. Smoky quartz ranges from light to dark brown, and occasionally near-black. It's mined around the world, with large producers in the U.S., Mexico and Brazil.
Caring for your smoky quartz jewelry is a simple process that will ensure that your gemstone maintains its beautiful sparkle. The best way to keep your gem clean is to bring it to your local Helzberg Diamonds store for a complimentary cleaning and inspection. At home, you can brighten your smoky quartz jewelry by gentling wiping the gemstone with a jewelry polishing cloth and warm water.
