Smoky Quartz


Just like Selenite, it is a highly grounding stone, ruling the root chakra, and improving its user’s connection with the physical world. This is no surprise, given that this mineral makes up so much of the earth’s crust! Smoky Quartz is highly valued because of how it helps you to cut through the illusions in life, and likewise remain centered when you come across new ideas that would otherwise leave you a little on the back foot. However, staying rooted as you do this means it’s an amazing meditative aid as well – one that has often been less recognized in the crystal lover community, due to how other stones have become more popular over the years. Yet staying connected to the real and the physical while meditating is a wonderful balance to strike, and one that smoky quartz can help you to find. It also helps that this is such a versatile stone in terms of how well it works with other crystals – its energies are often very complementary and can be turned towards whatever you might need.
