The staff at my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:

Smoky quartz is a form of quartz with traces of lithium and/or aluminum, which give it a gray-to-brown shade, ranging from pale to almost black. It’s a great stone for grounding higher energies, making it an excellent helper for those working with dream healing, astral travel, and shamanic journeying. Smoky quartz offers great protection against negative energies that can interfere with healing work or spiritual growth. It is the national gemstone of Scotland, and the ancient Celts used it to adorn both ceremonial jewelry and weapons.

It is one of the traditional birthstones for Scorpio.

This crystal is wonderful for meditation and spiritual endeavors, but also very helpful for stress, anxiety, panic attacks, and dealing with negative energy in everyday life. If your own emotions and moods sometimes get in the way of inner peace, try “filtering” out negativity by selecting a piece of smoky quartz that speaks to you personally and working with it on a regular basis.

    I was wondering if Smoky quartz and Lithium quartz is the same thing, because the pictures portraying the one and the other appear slightly different at my Internet searches.

    Thank you in advance for your help

      Hi Elena! They are definitely not the same thing. <3 But thank you for asking! Crystal Blessings

    I just want to say that I absolutely enjoy all of the info you provide on your website! It’s been incredibly helpful for me on my path <3 However, I was wondering if you could answer this question for me: One of my older cats has been recently diagnosed with stage three kidney disease and has large kidney stones, and I'm curious if there are any crystals that I can use to help. Also, is smokey quartz a good option? (While there aren't a lot of options as to what to do, traditionally speaking, for kidney disease, I want you to know that I am not just relying on crystals.)

    Thank you for reading this and answering in advance!

      Hi Gabriella, so sorry to hear about your kitty’s health. 🙁 Smokey quartz, hematite, and tiger iron have been identified to be able to help with kidney function. Just keep in mind that using these crystals can complement and enhance traditional medicine by taking a more holistic approach and looking at the emotional, mental, energetic makeup and how that interacts with the body, but shouldn’t replace traditional medicine. Hope that helps! <3
