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.
These gorgeous crystals are from Central Brazil, where they were dug up from the earth ethically from a family owned and operated mine -they have been polished with a cut base for easy display. Please choose from A -D - from left to right - with photos in order. They are lighter in color and many have a light citrine honey glow to them. (purchased in a mixed box from the mine with citrine present as well!) See photos for quality and please note that C + D have a tiny chip on the back of the very tip.
