Smoky Quartz is an essential healing crystal utilized throughout history by many cultures. The ancient Druids and Celts associated Smoky Quartz with the Gods and Goddesses of the Earth and Hectate, Goddess of the Occult and the Dark Moon. This stone’s smoky appearance was seen as ghost-like to ancient Gaelic peoples, who came to see Smoky Quartz as a symbol of the afterlife and conduit to the spirit realm. It was also a symbol of the harvest - the transition into the darker times of the month.
In the metaphysical world, Smoky Quartz is considered a supreme grounding stone, ideal for connecting to the Earth’s energies and allowing negative energy to be drawn away. And like Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz is also useful for cleansing energy and crystal cleansing.
Smoky Quartz is a stone that alleviates fears. Fear of failure, rejection or even health anxiety. It is not that Smoky Quartz necessarily prevents any harm, but it casts a different light on how we feel about what we fear. Perhaps its association with the shadowy side of reality, darkness and the 'underworld' allow us to think of these things differently. Rather than fearing the unknown, we embrace the things beyond our understanding and accept everything as a part of our earthly experience.
Smoky Quartz does, however, have a reputation for protection as well - crucifixes made of Smoky Quartz were placed in the bedroom to keep evil away in Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. It was thought to keep spirits and paranormal at bay while we were sleeping - a guardian for our subconscious. Native American also saw Smoky Quartz as a stone that protected one in the ethereal realm from harmful forces. Today we can think of Smoky Quartz as a stone that helps us to accept the strange or unknown in the outside world and within ourselves. It is an excellent stone for ridding intrusive thoughts or self-doubts that arise in our minds when we try to think of the future or forget troubles in the past.
