These quartz crystals from Diamantina Brazil are something wonderful! Especially these smokies, my goodness!
This beauty is covered in gorgeous light etching that looks like a work of art and knowledge has been encoded on the crystals faces, it's absolutely beautiful! Also love that cathedral like growth too! The video is a MUST see! Please do check it out, photos never do quartz varieties justice! There is a slight knick at the main termination on this one but it is very minor.
Please see image with ruler for size reference.
Smokey Quartz is a variety of quartz that ranges from a lightly tinted grey to a deep dark black.
It is well known to be an excellent tool for powerful shielding, protecting, grounding (which helps the flow of higher awareness come in and be accepted with more ease). Also for detoxing energies, letting go of tension, negative patterns and energies. When I’m in empath energetic overload, or physical and emotional discomfort overload, this is one of my tops to reach for. It can transform and transmute heavy negative emotions & blockages (as well as those generated from anger & resentment) & clear a path to allow positive & healing energies to come in. It tends to have a more slow & gentle effect, but efficient. I don’t know about you but I usually need gentle! Can aid with psychic protection, especially when communicating in other realms and worlds. May assist when one is sensitive to electromagnetic energy. With technology everywhere these days it’s a good one to have around.
