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.
As long as there is an interest in high quality Quartz, Switzerland will produce it! Twisted Gwindels and water clear rich cognac smokey Quartz define Alpine Quartz throughout Europe. Dozens of prospecting sites across the Swiss Alps produce similar wonders. They live a good life in Switzerland and the Quartz certainly exemplifies this!
