Smokey Quartz occurs all over the world. Water clear high luster gemmy smokey is highly sought after and somewhat rare. Switzerland is perhaps most known for the standard of top grade Smokey Quartz, but quite a few other localities can challenge Swiss Smokey Quartz. Malawi in particular has what we believe to be the best Smokey Quartz on earth! Also Mulangi and Zomba both produce great clarity.
One of the more untapped countries for specimen collecting, Australia has a wealth of minerals to offer. The country is so big and so remote that prospecting is not the cheapest or easiest endeavor. Often times just to get to the mining areas from the highly populated east coast, drives of over 2000km one-way are required! Western Australia boasts the country's largest industrial mineralization. It is perhaps the most remote place on earth and that makes specimen mining there somewhat prohibitive. We do see stones come to market occasionally though. More rough than specimen.

Gems and crystals are great for altars, grids, terrariums, pocket stones, gifts, home decorating, collecting and more! They are also wonderful additions to meditation, reiki and chakra work. Healing crystals are not a replacement for traditional medical treatment.
