Smoky Quartz is a must have in any metaphysical household!
Not only is it a beautiful, grounding stone that gives you gentle and harmonious vibrations, but it's for your protection. This stone is fairly easy to find, but good quality Smoky Quartz is a little more expensive than your normal stone. It all depends though, so don't let that stop you! I've seen rough Smoky Quartz for $1.
Smoky Quartz was used by druids and known as the Stone of Power. I was known as this because it seemed to harness the power of the Earth Gods and Goddesses. This stone is an homage to Mother Earth, Gaia, herself.
Clearish brown to a blackish hue, sometimes the color does come across almost yellow. It is translucent with darker ends. You can still find the rainbow inside a lot of smoky quartz, just like your clear quartz.
Smoky Quartz is linked with the earth and base chakras. It's perfect for grounding and anchoring, as well as psychic protection. It is a very effective stone when it comes to raising vibrations during meditation, and helps bring positive vibrations in a space.
Smoky Quartz teaches you how to leave things that no longer serve you. It's great at aiding in the acceptance of your physical body and because it helps to cleanse the base chakra, allows your sexual nature and passion to flow naturally.
It is a negative emotion dispeller. Alleviating even nightmares and helping to manifest your dreams.
Mentally, Smoky Quartz promotes positive, rational thoughts. It promotes concentration and also clearing the mind. Helps to lift depression, bring emotional calmness. It alleviates suicidal tendencies. Smoky Quartz is a great stress reliever.
Smoky quartz is often naturally irradiate, so it's a great stone to have for treating radiation-related illnesses. Be careful to pick a stone that hasn't been artificially treated with radiation, which usually looks very black and nontransparent.
It helps ailments in the abdomen, hips, and legs, as well as relieving pain including headaches.
