How is Smokey Quartz formed?

This is an amazing crystal which shows it impressive, distinct colour and pattern using radiation. As the primary crystal is Quartz and as a result of its genetic makeup means that it's formed in the same way as all Quartz (the process of magma slowly cooling). The colour is more complicated than meets the eye. The smoky brown to black variety of Quartz is thanks to the Gamma radiation and it's that presence of trace Aluminium within the crystal lattice that gives it that dark smoky colour.
