Smokey Quartz is a from of Quartz, Silicon Dioxide, and owes its color to gamma irradiation and the presence of traces of aluminum present in the earth. Energetically, it is said to be one of the most grounding & clearing stones available, both purifying & protecting. It is associated with the Root chakra (energy center). I like to think of it as a nervous system reset. Energy healers believe itto be great for anxiety & calming nerves. It can fade over long periods of time in direct sunlight.
It is naturally double terminated, meaning it grew with crystal points at both ends. This is said to energetically act like a battery.
This gorgeous crystal is from Minas Gerais, Brazil, where it was dug up from the earth and left in it's completely natural state without any cutting or polishing. It is so beautiful from all angles that it was hard to photograph it, appearing as if a different crystal from each view. So many rainbow inclusions in the light, and see last photo for the baby points growing beneath the crystal facet with some red iron present, too. See all photos for any natural imperfections, very hard to capture its energy, so magnificent.
It weighs 4lbs 12.8 oz and measures about 8 x 5 x 4 inches.
