Smoky quartz, much as its names describes, is a form of quartz crystal with a brown hue and smoke-like inclusions and appearance. Commonly labeled both as Smokey Quartz beads and Smoky Quartz beads, smoky quartz looks beautiful with any of the many metals used in jewelry making.
Smoky quartz is usually clear quartz that has undergone a heat treatment to enhance its smoky color.

for a steampunk or vintage look. Gold filled wire
will elevate faceted smoky quartz to elegance. And sterling silver wire
