Morion is an ancient term for dark, opaque smoky quartz. The opaqueness is intensified by the inclusion of micro brookites.
Rare black mineral composed of titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide occurs in three well known minerals - rutile, the most common but also anatase and the rarest of the three - brookite. Of course since all three minerals have the same chemistry they occur in different crystal systems.
