This stone can be used to release old, calcified or fermenting negativity like grief, anger and despair. It is a mildly calming stone and a good balancer of sexual energy. A good tool for meditation as it helps you explore your inner self by penetrating the dark areas with love and light. Smokey Quartz will lift your spirit quickly and change your frame of mind.
It is both an earth star chakra stone, and a base or root chakra stone. Its strong energy moves down from the base chakra through the earth star chakra and will ground you to Mother Gaia. Like other quartz crystals it can amplify, not only its own energy, but energy from near by stones.
History Newsflash: Smoky Quartz was known as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it was sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses. In other cultures it guided souls to the afterlife, served in shamanistic rituals and tribal ceremonies, and was utilised in magic.
