Smoky Quartz

Chakra: Earth Star and Root

Source: Worldwide

Structure: Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen. This is silicon dioxide (SiO2).

This versatile healing crystal carries the underlying properties of Quartz. Smoky Quartz is a Quartz that has been exposed to a natural source of radiation from the Earth which gives it a smoky brown color. Because it has been permeated with the strong vibrations of Earth radiation, natural Smoky Quartz is a powerful ally in connecting with the Earth. When we resonate in harmony with the planet, the energetic cord that links our Earth Star and first chakras becomes activated. This enhances our ability to both receive energy from the Earth and channel excess energies into the Earth, which is called grounding. Smoky Quartz clears all chakras and shields the aura.

Because it is already resonant with the frequencies of radiation, it can effectively be used to counter excessive electromagnetic fields, such as those emitted by computers and other electronics or by other sources of radiation and geopathic stress.

Smoky Quartz teaches us how to leave behind anything that no longer serves us.

Psychologically, Smoky Quartz relieves fear, lifts depression, and brings emotional calmness. This crystal alleviates nightmares and manifests our dreams.

Mentally, Smoky Quartz promotes positive, pragmatic thought and can be used in scrying, giving us clear insight and neutralizing fear of failure. It dissolves contradictions, promotes concentration, and alleviates communication difficulties. It facilitates moving between alpha and beta states of mind and aids in clearing the mind for meditation. Tolerance of stress is much improved with the assistance of relaxing Smoky Quartz and it provides pain relief as well. It works on the kidneys and other organs of elimination to energetically remove toxins from the body. It works best to counter the negative effects of radiation, including sunburn, exposure to radioactive materials, medical radiation therapy, and exposures to focused electromagnetic fields.

In a healing grid, Smoky Quartz absorbs disharmonious environmental energy. With the point facing out, it transmutes negative energy and with the point facing in, it draws in healing light.
