As a root healing stone, it is an excellent stone for removing negativity and is very protective and grounding. It brings physical and psychic protection. It can help one reach personal and business goals. Emotionally, smokey quartz is excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions and relieving depression.
"Let it go" is the phrase that best defines the smoke quartz, as it releases negative energy, and encourages you to help to 'move on'. Carrying the stone with you is the most practical in being able to release any built-up energy that accumulates. If you have a space that has a lot of negative energy or vibrations that just making you feel down, put that crystal there to help with a higher vibe as it acts as a filter.
Please note that this stone varies quite a bit in tone, some are very dark while others are almost clear. I've also tried to show this in the photos. I encourage you to check out my video on Instagram/Tiktok explaining and showing you the variance to expect.
Approx 20-25mm Tumbled and polished
Ethically Sourced: It was very important in the crystal and gemstone sourcing that it was purchased only from mining suppliers that had the correct certificates that established their operations as safe and environmentally sound. My wholesaler is adamant on ensuring the crystals are fair-trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufactures and families. Most of the semi-precious stones and crystals come from family owned mines that are passed down from generations (like a family farm here in Canada).
I understand it can be difficult to feel a stone's energy when shopping online. When selecting stones for your order, I personally select the stones with intention for you based on the stock available.
There can be variance in the stone's colouring and shape, as is the world of stone, gems and crystals are non-refundable. No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour.
Disclaimer: While using your gems/crystals in practice, please note that Hermit's Path does not guarantee any stone to have any physical or mental health impact. I do not make any claims that it will help. Remember, this is a personal practice... connecting with the energy is not a substitute for traditional medicine where it may be needed. :)
