Smokey Quartz | The Magic of Crystals

Smokey Quartz

Energy Center: Root

The Full Scoop: Smokey Quartz is a type of quartz that has gone through a natural (or in some cases intentional) irradiation.  As a result, it takes on a different set of properties than its close counterpart Clear Quartz.  It still has the ability to generate and amplify energies.  It can also hold memories so it is still a record keeper.  However, energetically it is much more connected to the physical plane and the experiences here.  It understands the ebbs and flow of life and the inherent value of cycles.  It is more committed to understanding life in its physical form.

This is one of the reasons we experience this as a stone that affects the physical body first.  It has a naturally grounding quality.  It helps us connect to the safety and security energy that is part of the Root Energy Center located at the base of the spine.  It reminds us that we have chosen this physical playground to evolve our consciousness. The grounding energy we experience from Smokey Quartz has a tendency to be infused with self-confidence.

Another property of this crystal is it’s ability to transmute negative energies.  So if you find that you are being bombarded with negative energies, this a great stone to help release and cleanse these energies so you can enter a new higher vibration.

Actually, it can take on a lot of negative energies for transmuting before it needs to be cleansed.  You will probably sense when it is reaching its capacity for taking on negative energies. It will not feel as potent and familiar as it normally does.
