Smoky Quartz's strength lies in its ability to absorb and transmute significant amounts of negative energy and release it into the Earth to be neutralized naturally.
Instead of just surfacing negative energies and emotional blockages, this crystal gently dissolves these energies as it encounters them. Thus, it allows positive frequencies to take their place, filtering out bad moods, fear, stress, anger, and unspoken resentment that drain one's energies and make them unable to move forward.
Smoky Quartz lifts depression and fatigue, teaching one how to let go of what is no longer necessary for growth. It provides a strong shield against emotional or psychic attacks or strain, and environmental stress, and is a great general healing or meditation tool. A Root Chakra stone, Smoky Quartz is adept at grounding us back to the earth.
Physically, natural Smoky Quartz can be helpful for those going through chemo.
