Smoky Quartz is a crystal representing our connection to Mother Earth, the chthonic energies lying in the lower worlds, and the transmutation of negative energies back into positive ones.

While the name Smoky Quartz is the most popular for this dark, brownish-black variety of Quartz, in Scotland and other European countries, it goes by Morion, the original term which the druids gave to this beautiful crystal.

Morion is said to have multiple origins, including the Greek word morion, meaning “baneful” or “hideous,” as well as the old French word moreau meaning “black.”

As one of the most potent crystals for metaphysical arts practitioners, Smoky Quartz can effectively remove negative spirits or energies from patients’ auric fields through the use of grounding techniques or by placing them directly on the body.

Like many crystals with darker hues, Smoky Quartz held an essential role in spiritual practices throughout history. It was used for similar purposes by placing it outside of houses or in windows to prevent drifting spirits from entering a family’s space.

Now, that tradition continues by its use in scrying, divination, and other intuitive activities.

Smoky Quartz also has an affinity to gods representing darkness such as Hecate, Celtic gods such as the Goddess of the Occult and the Dark Moon, Crom, Dubh, and even had ties to the harvest festival of Samhain.

In all these ways, Smoky Quartz shows its ability to work in darkness to process negative energies and create new positive change.

It’s important to remember that ancient views of darkness often encompassed a much more holistic approach to the concepts of light and dark and were not dualistic or connoting evil.

In this way, Smoky Quartz can be used in times of the Winter months, when the days grow short and the night grows long, to resonate with the changes in the seasons.

Smoky Quartz carries the qualities of the soil, ash, mud, and clay, making you rejuvenated from the ground up, similar to watering and nurturing a field for the harvest.

Finally, Smoky Quartz represents the power of the sacred, divine feminine – particularly in her most natural form.

While other feminine stones such as Moonstone, Selenite, and Rose Quartz embody the soft, gentle, nurturing elements of the divine feminine, Smoky Quartz focuses on the wild, untethered goddess energy, the wise woman and medicine women of the forest who have connected so deeply with Mother Nature that the two have almost become one.

In this way, Smoky Quartz can accentuate this energy, which may already be resting inside of you or help develop it in the first place. Sleeping with Smoky Quartz or using it daily can help unleash this natural, intuitive spirit inside you.
