About: Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in earth’s crust after feldspar. There are many different types of quartz such as rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, and citrine. All quartz has been used for centuries in hard stone carvings and in the making of jewellery.
Quartz is a commonly identified mystical substance for Australian aboriginals and is found regularly in cemetery passages in Europe and Ireland. Smokey quartz is a grey to brown translucent variety of quartz. The smoky colour results from free silicon, formed from the silicon dioxide by natural irradiation.
Metaphysical: Smokey quartz is a premiere grounding stone, dissipating emotional and environmental negativity. It can transform mechanical pressure or heat into electromagnetic energy, and vice versa. It also has the ability to focus, amplify, store and transform energy. It can bring strength and clarity to metaphysical energies and may help one access the divine realms practically.
Why you should wear this stone: We include smokey quartz in our base chakra designs because the base chakra is all about staying grounded. The base chakra reinforces our connection to the earth and counter balances our connection to the divine.
Smokey quartz’s transformative properties are extremely beneficial when converting the mechanical or physical energy of the base chakra into the metaphysical energies of the higher chakras. Use this grounding stone and our base chakra designs to bring strength and clarity to your chakra system as a whole.
