Smoky quartz is a form of quartz with traces of lithium and/or aluminum, which give it a gray-to-brown shade, ranging from pale to almost black. It’s a great stone for grounding higher energies, making it an excellent helper for those working with dream healing, astral travel, and shamanic journeying. Smoky quartz offers great protection against negative energies that can interfere with healing work or spiritual growth. It is the national gemstone of Scotland, and the ancient Celts used it to adorn both ceremonial jewelry and weapons.
It is one of the traditional birthstones for Scorpio.
Smoky quartz is wonderful for meditation and spiritual endeavors, but also very helpful for stress, anxiety, panic attacks, and dealing with negative energy in everyday life. If your own emotions and moods sometimes get in the way of inner peace, try “filtering” out negativity by selecting a piece of smoky quartz that speaks to you personally and working with it on a regular basis.
