Since the 1960s smoky quartz 'geodes' have been highly sought after from the designated gem collecting site near Mooralla, near the Grampians in western Victoria. The geodes are formed below the surface in weathered greenish-grey rhyolite, known as the Rocklands Rhyolite, which erupted in the Late Devonian period.
Geological occurrences: World wide. Commonly found in Brazil, China, Australia, USA.
Crystallography: This mineral is known for its clarity and well-formed crystals. Found typically as prismatic crystals, singly or doubly terminated, often as single or twinned crystals, clusters and fine druses in cavities and geodes. Quartz belongs to the trigonal crystal system and is typically terminated with 2 sets of three rhombohedra, major and minor (6 faces total).
Untwinned Quartz has the ability to become electrically charged when heat and/or pressure is applied.
Observations: Crystals show striations perpendicular to the prism length (crystal axis). Striations are indented grooves caused by alteration between prism and rhombohedral forms during growth. Typical inclusions are negative crystals (hollow cavities showing crystal forms), gas and/or liquid filled cavities, healed fractures (veils or feathered) occasionally with yellow iron staining and a wide range of other crystals/minerals. These include rutile, tourmaline, chlorite, pyrite, hematite, goethite, epidote, actinolite and dumortierite.
Although crystals have survived hundreds of thousands to millions of years (wow) in our earth they are still delicate and must be treated with TLC.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
