Smoky Quartz

Protection ~ Pain Relief ~ Grounding

History of Smoky Quartz

Smoky quartz is a striking variety of quartz known for its smoky brown to black hue. With a history rooted in ancient civilizations, it was cherished for its protective and grounding attributes. Across cultures, it has been used in rituals, jewelry, and amulets for both its beauty and metaphysical properties. In modern crystal healing, smoky quartz is believed to aid in stress reduction, emotional healing, and fostering stability. Its appeal as a jewelry gem endures, and it is sometimes employed in Feng Shui practices to create harmonious spaces. However, it's crucial to recognize that while smoky quartz holds historical and spiritual significance, its metaphysical benefits are subjective and should not replace conventional medical care.

Smoky Quartz Healing Properties

Spiritual Healing Properties: It is believed to be a powerful grounding stone that helps to anchor and stabilize one's energy. It can assist in releasing negative emotions, relieving stress, and promoting a sense of calmness and balance. Smoky Quartz is also associated with protection, shielding one from negative energies and electromagnetic radiation.

Physical Healing Properties: It is said to help alleviate pain, particularly in the lower back and legs. Smoky Quartz is also believed to support the respiratory system, aiding in the relief of coughs, colds, and other respiratory ailments. Additionally, it is thought to assist in detoxification and the removal of toxins from the body.

How we use Smoky Quartz

Below we have shared some of our favourite ways that us here at Yoga & Oils love to use our Smoky Quartz.


  • Wearing smoky quartz jewelry is a convenient way to keep the crystal's energy with you throughout the day. You can choose pieces that resonate with your style and preferences, such as necklaces, bracelets, or rings. It not only enhances your outfit but also provides the grounding and protective properties of smoky quartz.


  • During meditation, smoky quartz can be a valuable tool to deepen your practice. Holding a smoky quartz crystal in your hand or placing it on your body, especially at your root chakra or near your feet, can help you feel more grounded and centered. This can aid in achieving a relaxed and clear state of mind.

Placed intentionally in the home

  • By placing smoky quartz clusters or tumbled stones in different rooms of your home, you create a calming and protective atmosphere. Smoky quartz can absorb and transmute negative energy, making your living space feel more harmonious and peaceful. It's especially beneficial in areas where you want to promote relaxation, such as your bedroom or meditation space.

Energy cleansing

  • Smoky quartz is known for its ability to cleanse and purify energy fields. You can use it in energy cleansing practices by sweeping it around your body, visualizing it absorbing and transmuting any negative energy. You can also place smoky quartz on specific energy centers or chakras to balance and clear their energy.


  • Place a smoky quartz crystal under your pillow or on your nightstand to promote restful sleep and vivid dreams. It can also help protect you from nightmares and negative dream energy.
