A superb antidote to stress, this protective stone has a strong link with the earth and the base chakras. Relieving fear, it also lifts depression and brings emotional calmness. Smokey Quartz promotes positive thought, assists in tolerating difficult times and gently neutralizes the negative vibrations. It can help dispel nightmares and manifest your dreams. It is beneficial to the kidneys, abdomen, pancreas, and removes toxins from the body as well as helps the adrenal glands. It is also very helpful for regulating body fluids and relieving fluid retention, hyperactivity, and ADD. Smoky quartz is helpful to reduce cramps, protects against radiation, and electromagnetic smog we receive from our electronic devices. Also, on a physical level, it can strengthen the back, fortify the nerves, help the abdomen, hips and legs. It can also relieve back pain, muscle spasms, aid the heart and reproductive system.

Since smoky quartz is quartz based, it too carries the healing properties of all quartz. Quartz is used for power, energy, and clarity. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting it. Quartz channels universal energy, by enhancing thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. It is also beneficial for storing and retrieving information of all types. Quartz is a stone of clarity which dispels negativity and clears away negative energy. Quartz is a Master Healer stone; it is an excellent all-purpose crystal healer.

Smoky quartz is associated with the earth element, Capricorn and Sagittarius astrological signs, and the root and solar plexus chakras. The solar plexus chakra is associated with the nervous system, stomach, gall bladder, large intestine, liver and pancreas. When it is out of balance it can make us judgmental, stubborn, critical, and bully. It can also bring on low self-esteem, procrastination, make us apathetic and feel taken advantage of. Balanced, it helps us respect others and ourselves, be confident, calm and able to solve problems.

The root chakra is associated with the spine, bladder, blood, kidneys, male reproductive organs and feet. When it is out of balance it can make us bossy, domineering, egoistic, greedy, violent, feel unloved, sexually inadequate, frustrated and fearful. Balanced, it can make us feel grounded, have a sense of belonging, trust and be independent.
