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 it to be great for anxiety & calming nerves. It can fade over long periods of time in direct sunlight.
Rutiles or Rutilations are titanium oxide that are believed to act like a radio antenna to higher energy frequencies. It is said that when the inclusions that are orange to gold in color are said it can help to activate your creative mind. These have a gorgeous golden tone, see 6th photo.
This is an incredibly large statement crystal. It 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 features a phantom crystal growing inside as well as inclusions + rutiles, and 2 main points on the ends - one end has more of an elestial look with multiple points. It can be displayed flat, on it's side. It weighs a total of 10lbs 1oz! It measures just about 13 inches long x 4.5 & 3 inches wide.
See all photos for any natural imperfections, very hard to capture its energy, just incredible! I do not recommend holding one handed like I did in the photo. If you've been wanting a large, completely raw, natural, grounding, statement piece for your home - look no further!
