Smokey quartz is a black to a gray or brown variety of quartz that is transparent or translucent. Usually, it appears browner in color. It is primarily found in gypsum and limestone in Italy, the US, Brazil, Australia, China, and Spain.

Quartz is naturally occurring silicon dioxide in clear crystal form; the color in smokey quartz is caused by free silicon formed from silicon dioxide by natural irradiation.

Smokey quartz is used primarily in jewelry making, spiritual healing, and Feng Shui.

Quartz is usually harmless unless broken or powdered. Broken crystals may have sharp edges that can easily cut skin; handle with care. Do not grind dry quartz since long-term exposure to finely ground powder may lead to silicosis.

Smokey Quartz for Peaceful Sleep

Root Chakra, First Muladhara (Red)

Smokey quartz is associated with the Root Chakra. Located at the base of the spine, this chakra relates to basic survival needs and our sense of belonging, whether to our family, friends, large group or community.

When this chakra is balanced we feel secure and confident. Blockage in this chakra can cause anxiety and worry.

This chakra provides information about actions we’re pondering, will they nourish or threaten us? When a decision is to be made, we should listen to the signals of the root chakra: Uncomfortable sensations are a signal to be alert and re-evaluate, while positive feelings indicate that a given course of action is likely to meet our needs for safety and nourishment.

Feng Shui

For Feng Shui uses, it is best to place smokey quartz near a front door for its grounding and protective qualities. It also serves well placed in a child's room, home office, or in a window. The energy from smokey quartz enriches the Northwest and Northeast bagua areas of a home.
