Smoky quartz is a brown to black variety of quartz, that has a unique combination of various tones (from light to very deep)due to natural irradiation. Smoky quartz can be opaque, but is almost always transparent to translucent, even when in its darkest color shade.

Quartz’s uses in healing, altering consciousness, and magic has linked it to the spirit of the New Age. Long neglected by people in most of the world, save for their industrial applications, quartz crystals are today a huge commercial business.

Quartz is beneficial to one who finds the need to move forward within himself. It can be extremely helpful to one who is contemplating his relationship with life, exploring his value system, and seeking inner meaning. When meaning is discovered, the magic of smoky quartz is said to be excellent in working to bring one’s dreams into manifestation. Smoky quartz connects us with our higher self.

Grounding in an uplifting kind of way, the smoky quartz provides a subtle energy of protection and balance. Smoky quartz brings physical and psychic protection from negative energy as it removes negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforms them to positive energy. It also works energetically to assist in prioritizing needs and wants, and brings wisdom to every day life.

It’s already fall and I love its colors. These dark orange jasper beads inspired me to create this necklace – using 925 sterling silver wire and rings.
I am fond of jasper because it is a very nurturing stone. Jasper is the birthstone for those born in the month of October so this necklace is very suitable as a gift for the upcoming month. Please check Anne’s Jewellery shop for a lot of jewellery gifts.

Jasper is an opaque and fine grained variety of Chalcedony. It is found in all colors including: red, brown, orange, pink, yellow, green, grey/white and shades of blue and purple. Found worldwide, a wide variety of named jaspers is found in the western areas of the Unites States; California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Washington.

It is said that all jaspers have excellent protective energies. Jasper sustains and supports you during times of stress and bringing feelings of peace. Jasper gemstone is the supreme nurturer, a good stone for the healers to use on the behalf of others, for people in counseling or therapy, who want to overcome addictions or compulsive behavior. It provides protection and absorbs negative energy and clears environmental pollution. This beautiful gemstone is supposed to provide courage, stimulate the imagination and promote organisational abilities.
