Crystal Thursday – Smokey Quartz

This week we travel back to the quartz family kingdom to learn about one of the most essential crystals in a healers toolbox.

Smokey Quartz
Smokey quartz is a member of the quartz family distinguished by its natural brown color that is caused by traces of aluminum and lithium, as well as radioactivity deep within the earth’s crust.  It is traditionally, and widely considered a protective stone, thought to guard one from bad luck.  It is the celebrated national gemstone of Scotland because it has been mined in the Cairngorm Mountains throughout the ages.  These days it is found in many countries including Brazil, Madagascar, Scotland, Switzerland and the US.  Smokey quartz is the classic anti-stress stone, its vibe is soothing and earthy and will help one to break the old patterns of behavior that move one to creating stressful situations in the first place. It is a remarkable clearing and grounding stone, as it breaks up negative thought forms and inclinations, releasing them into the earth for transmuting into more helpful energy.  It is associated with the base and crown chakra, and is helpful in connecting the two, establishing a beautiful synergy between one’s spiritual purpose with one’s physical reality.  It is also a valuable tool for giving purpose and direction to creative energy.  Many healers also use smokey quartz as an aid to offset the effects of radiation.
