This top grade smoky quartz stone features a rich, evenly saturated colour and the high-quality cut enhances the colour and depth. In the realm of dark stones, Smoky Quartz offers a rare and beautiful transparency that draws light into shades of black and brown. With crystals as pale and surreal as a wisp of smoke, as dark and clear as midnight waters, or as warm and rich as a cognac by the fire, this mineral honours its connection with Mother Earth. It is a talisman of the Root Chakra, an anchor in the natural world, drawing white light energy from the Crown down through the body to be deeply rooted into the physical plane. It initiates movement of primal forces within the body and activates the survival instincts in a purified way. Smoky Quartz is a Stone of Power. Known to absorb and transmute significant amounts of negative energy and release it into the Earth to be neutralised naturally. It provides a vital shield against psychic attack, emotional and environmental stress, and is used extensively in healing and meditation.
