ROCK TRIVIA: SMOKY QUARTZ
Smoky quartz is the national gem of Scotland. The Celts, who began colonizing the British Isles around 300 BC, mined the stone in the Scottish highlands. It is used in Scottish jewellery and as a decoration on kilt pins. The largest known crystal is a 52 pound specimen kept at Braemar Castle.
Here's an interesting fact: In 12th century China, flat panes of smoky quartz were used as sunglasses.
SMOKY QUARTZ AND FENG SHUI
In feng shui, smoky quartz is used as a protective measure, as well as to ground the energy. You can use carvings, a sphere, a geode or even tumbled stones.The energy of the smoky quartz works very well as a protective element close to the front door. A point or a cluster are best for this purpose. It is also excellent in a child's room or in your home office.
Pictured is an Art Deco pendant by Theodore Fahrner of Smokey Quartz with Marcasite in silver. About 1928
