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. Morion Quartz is the name given to a black or almost black type of Smokey Quartz, being a mixture of the silicon dioxide mineral Quartz, plus the additions of organic impurities, that have been exposed to natural radiation deep within the earth.
This is an incredibly dark smokey is from the earth in Aydin, Western Anatolian Turkey, purchased directly from the mine. It weighs 2.6 oz and measures about 2.25 x 2 x 1 inches. See the photos how it can appear almost black unless in direct sunlight beam, it shows off its dark smokey glow. It is not perfect as it is left in its completely natural state without polishing, see photos for small imperfections.
