Smoky Quartz is clear quartz that has been exposed to underground natural radiation which turns it brown - this is possibly why it is able to help us with such things as electromagnetic stress. If Smoky Quartz is too dark/black or opaque do check that it has not been artificially heat treated as the energies are not then very pleasant and no longer useful for healing.
Energetic Properties Smoky Quartz is a powerful and potent crystal that shouldn't be underestimated. Good for meditation and self development. It can be worked with to do inner healing work, to help us to clear negativity and to look at our inner fears and phobias. It can also help with geopathic stress.
Where to use in the Energy field This stone if darker can be used for grounding. If lighter it can go higher up in the energy field.
Vibration Works well with clearing crystals such as Snowy Quartz and Amethyst. Rose Quartz is nice to work alongside it as it will soften the Smoky Quartz energies.
Storing with other crystals - Smoky Quartz is 7 on the Mohs scale, so fine to carry or put with your other quartz crystals as they won't scratch each other.
Cleansing - Smoky Quartz is fine under running water.
Don't leave Smoky Quartz in sunlight as the colour may fade.
Other cleansing techniques safe for all crystals are using sage or sound to cleanse.
Whenever cleansing a crystal the key is to use your intention for the crystals to be cleansed by the process as you are doing it - as energy follows thought.
