The Healing Properties Of Smoky Quartz
If you’ve ever had a look into a gem store, you’ve probably seen smoky quartz. That’s because this gem is one of the most popular stones in the world! But don’t let this fool you: this gemstone is somewhat rare, as the color brown seldom makes its way into crystals.
So how did it become so popular?
Smoky quartz was popular in the ancient times because it was easy to cut and shape into different objects. The Chinese, Egyptians, Romans, and Sumerians each had practical uses for the crystal, but the Druids in particular placed great value on it; to them, it was sacred. So sacred, in fact, that it’s the national stone of Scotland.
Even today, Shamans and Wiccans use the quartz in rituals and ceremonies.
