Morion Quartz Healing Properties

Morion Quartz is the darkest variety of Smoky Quartz, so dark its nearly black! Dark Smoky Quartz is sometimes artificially exposed to irradiation to bring out a darker color. But these dark beauties are all-natural!

Ethically Sourced Morion Quartz

When we know better, we do better. Ethical sourcing is a constantly evolving process. If the original sourcing for the stone still passes Moonrise Crystals’ current standards, it will be restocked as soon as possible. If the original sourcing is no longer acceptable, it will be restocked when/if a better supplier can be found.

Know where your crystals come from

This Morion Quartz comes from small-scale mines in Bahia, Brazil. These mines have a low environmental impact.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This mine and gem dealer are a family business in Brazil. The family owns a small Lithium Quartz mine. They also have relationships with miner co-ops and lapidary co-ops around Brazil. The mother of the family is particularly passionate about ethical sourcing. All workers are safe and paid fair wages.

I first met this source at the 2020 Tucson Gem Show. I was surprised to see a sign that advertised “ethical sourcing” and immediately went to investigate. I discovered a Brazilian family business, run by a father, mother, and their sons. The business has existed for over 30 years, but recently the mother became concerned about conditions in Brazilian mines and polishing factories, and their effect on local communities. She gradually transformed the business following the principles of Fair Trade and articulated her own ethical values. Among these values are: to be environmentally friendly, work with miners co-ops, have a participatory workplace, develop long-term relationships, sponsor education for miners’ children, and respect cultural identities.

I had a long conversation with this inspiring woman, discussing both our own businesses as well as the larger industry. We already shared many of the same values, but I was intrigued by her commitment to respecting cultural identities. In Brazil, mines are often located on land owned by indigenous peoples. Often, miners are from somewhere else and usually don’t have any vested interest in protecting the local environment or distributing wealth into the local economy. To respect cultural identities means to do business with local indigenous peoples, rather than transient outsiders.

Morion Quartz Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published January 2015  •  Updated August 2022  •  Read Time: 8 minutes
Smoky Quartz is the grey, brown or black variety of Quartz.  While other crystals are colored by trace minerals, Smoky Quartz has a unique geological influence – natural irradiation that occurs under ground.  While light-colored gems are always natural, some of the darker examples may be artificially enhanced by exposing the Quartz to radium or x-rays! Smoky Quartz has a very calm and grounding energy, it’s a good stone to have around during a crisis when levelheaded thinking and sensible actions are needed.  It is highly recommended as a talisman for cancer patients, particularly those undergoing chemotherapy.
