Smoky Quartz has been known as a Stone of Power. Sacred to the ancient Druids, it signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses. In other cultures, it guided souls to the afterlife, served in shamanistic rituals and tribal ceremonies, and was utilized in magic and scrying. Today, it is commonly used in overcoming negativity.
Smoky Quartz is the national gem of Scotland, a country with the longest historical association with the stone. The Celts mined the brownish-gray Quartz in the Scottish highlands. These stones eventually became prominent adornment for Highlander apparel in the form of jewelry, and as power stones on the handles of weaponry. The term “Smoky Quartz” was first reported to the gem world by J. S. Dana in 1837 and was named for its color which had been likened to smoke.
