The popularity of the smoky quartz crystal
is due not only to its gorgeous look, but also to its affordability and the energy it provides. Grounding in an uplifting kind of way, the smoky quartz also provides a subtle energy of protection and balance.
Just as with the citrine
crystal, it is important to choose a natural smoky quartz (not a heat treated one). A natural smoky quartz will have a sense of lightness and translucency to it, even in its deeper tones.
Basically, the smoky quartz is a variety of quartz that has a unique combination of various brown colour
tones (from light to very deep); due to irradiation as provided by Mother Nature.
You can often find rutiles (also called angel hairs) in the inner world of the smoky quartz. These golden streams of energy offer the lucky smoky crystal owner more power for healing, clarity and awareness.
You can also often find rainbows and numerous mesmerizing formations in the inner life of the smoky quartz. Just as with the clear quartz
crystal, one can spend many hours exploring the inner life of the smoky quartz.
Smoky quartz comes in a variety of forms - from tumbled rocks and small points to clusters and impressive generators
. There is also plenty of little souvenirs or sculptures made of smoky quartz, as well as, of course, a variety of smoky quartz jewelry.
