Australian Mooralla Smokey Quartz. Small, rough natural points, perfect for gridding or jewellery.
Smokey Quartz is known as the grounding stone. This stone helps to remove negativity, confusion and delusion and brings a person back to healthy reality. It protects against bad influences, opportunistic ideas and shallow desire. A good talisman for those in business. Associated with the grounding root chakra.
It is a grey, translucent variety of quartz. It ranges in clarity from complete transparency to a brownish grey crystal that is almost opaque. The Smokey colour results from free silicone, formed by the natural irradiation of the dioxide. A very dark brown to black opaque variety is a morion.
