Smoky quartz is a macrocrystalline quartz like amethyst, citrine, prasiolite or rock crystal. Its name comes from its colour that ranges from brown to nearly black. It is caused by natural or artificial irradiation with undetectable gamma rays. The darker stones are sometimes called "morions" or "cairngorm".

AGemmes offers the best quality gemstones, meticulously selected worldwide for their aesthetic qualities by a certified gemmologist. France has some of the strictest laws in the world regarding the trade of gemstones. The seller is liable for the greatest precision regarding the description provided and must indicate the exact nature of a stone and, if necessary, any treatment other than traditional heating without flux or colourless oiling that the stone could have undergone.

The flaws and inclusions visible in the photo with magnification are considerably reduced, or even completely invisible to the naked eye.

    I had no idea that you did not receive your item yet. According to tracking, you have been delivered last 30th of May (please check and you will see by yourself). Nevertheless I immediately called DHL and they admit a mistake, they apparently delivered parcel somewhere in Brazil. I'm sorry for that mess but I'm innocent of this situation. Of course you will be totally refund and I do apalogize again. However, let me tell you that I did not appreciate the very rude way you addressed to me. I always tried my best to answer you immediately with courtesy and comprehensible sentences. AG

    As clearly written on description, this gemstone may be sent from our office in Jaipur. Your stone is actually on custom custody in Italia as you can check on tracking. I'm sorry about that but law is law and we can't do anything about that. Parcel has been sent on time so please be patient.
