Smoky Quartz is a color variety of crystalline quartz. The color is created by Earth's natural radiation with aluminum impurities in the rock. It often combines with other Quartz minerals like Amethyst and Citrine. Metaphysically, Smoky Quartz has a strong grounding connection to Earth and carries protective energy against all forms of negativity. For this reason, many people carry it for travel protection and as an antidote for stress, imbalance, hostility, or dysfunction in the workplace or social situations in general. Use it to also create positive energy.
A rough version of crystal is usually cut from a much larger piece of mined material that is too large or heavy to be used by a person. Rough chunks such as calcites are often acid-washed to subtly smooth out rough edges that may cause cuts or injury and to prevent further flaking or breakage.
