Are you feeling a bit unanchored lately, as if you are just spinning around aimlessly in space? Are you under a lot of stress, and you don’t know how to get it and yourself under control? Are you depressed? Smoky quartz can be a solution.

Smoky quartz is, first and foremost, quartz, the most powerful of all the crystals.

It is also unmatched when it comes from grounding and anchoring you, easing stress and gently removing negativity while raising your vibrations during meditation at the same time.

What is Smoky Quartz?

Smoky Quartz Points

Smoky quartz gets its name because the translucent crystal sometimes looks like it’s full of smoke. It can be gray, brown or the color of good cognac. The color comes because some of the silica in the quartz crystal, which is made of silicon dioxide, has been naturally irradiated while it was deep in the earth.

The crystals are usually long and pointed, with ends darker than the rest of the crystal. Smoky quartz is found all over the world and is easy to find, but you should make sure that it’s natural smoky quartz and not a crystal that’s been artificially irradiated.

Smoky Quartz Meaning

The meaning of smoky quartz revolves around its ability to balance and ground your energies. This is why it’s not only a good crystal to keep on your person but is excellent to ground the energies in your home.

One of the smoky quartz uses is in feng shui, the practice that brings positive energy into your home. Smoky quartz not only does this for your home and family but adds protection as well. This protection is enhanced if you notice that the quartz contains rutiles, which are golden fibers made of titanium dioxide.

Smoky quartz is an excellent crystal to combat electromagnetic smog that comes from cell phones and computers. It also reduces geopathic stresses that come from beneath the earth, especially if the area is disturbed in some way. It removes contaminants of all kinds and replaces them with positivity. Smoky quartz will teach you how to let go of anything that no longer serves.

Smoky quartz not only eases the stress you feel, but eases even suicidal depression and banishes fear. If you’re not quite comfortable being in a body as opposed to being in spirit, smoky quartz can allow you to accept incarnation. Since it vibrates with the base chakra which rules the passions, it cleanses it and encourages its energies to flow.

If you’ve been having nightmares, smoky quartz not only removes them but allows your positive dreams to come true. It gently does away with negative emotions and supports your positive thoughts. It brings insight and allows you to concentrate and communicate more easily.

The crystal makes it easier for you to clear your mind during meditation and resolves contradictions. A crystal ball made out of smoky quartz is an excellent device for scrying.

Smoky Quartz and Healing

That smoky quartz has been naturally irradiated makes it an excellent stone for helping people with radiation caused illnesses and those who are undergoing chemotherapy. They should make sure, however, that the crystal was naturally irradiated.

You can tell if a stone has received artificial radiation because it is deep black and opaque; it looks precisely like a lump of coal.

Smoky quartz supports all kinds of healing, and if the point is aimed away from you, it can help you avoid the uncomfortable healing crisis that sometimes accompanies recovering from an illness.

Smoky quartz is a good crystal to have if you are suffering from ailments centered in your legs, hips or abdomen. It is an excellent pain reliever, and many people utilize it for headaches and backaches. It helps your body use minerals and other nutrients and regulates bodily fluids.

Here are some tips on where to place smoky quartz:

  • Though it corresponds to your base chakra, smoky quartz can be placed anywhere. It brings good dreams if it is place under your pillow, and clears electronic smog if it’s placed near your cell phone. You can wear it as a pendant, where it is not only helpful but beautiful. If you are really under stress, put a smoky quartz crystal in each hand and just sit quietly for a few minutes.
  • Place smoky quartz over a painful area of your body to relieve it, aim the point away from you to draw off negative energy, and aim the point toward you to absorb positive energy.

If you want to use a piece of smoky quartz in feng shui, it is a good idea to put it near the front door.

The best type of crystal for this purpose is a generator or a generator cluster. One generator crystal is six sided, with each of the facets meeting in a point. A cluster is a very large crystal with many points, and each point can be programmed for its own purpose.

Indeed, there can be a point in a generator cluster programmed for every member of your family.
