Smoky Quarts towers

Smoky Quarts towers

Towers are similar to generators but are imperfect. A generator is always six-sided, comes to a perfect point with six equally sized faces, and is highly polished. Towers generally have 6 or 8 sides, though can have another number, come to a point with unequal sides, &/or show of natural features such as voids and geodes that prevent the sides from being perfectly polished. Like a generator, they can be used to focus energy and help distribute it.

Each tower is so different that we have each priced and labelled separately. Currently, we have listed:

  • Piece A is ~60 g, 7.7 cm tall, 2.2 cm wide, 6-sided, and is fairly clear with many internal fractures and cracks.

Smoky quartz is a brownish-grey, translucent quartz that is created when radiation activates colour centres around aluminum impurities. It is often used in jewelry and was historically not important. Smoky quartz provides grounding energy and gently neutralizes negative vibrations, teaching people how to leave behind anything that no longer serves them. It is used for stress relief, pain relief, and helps to alleviate negative emotions. Smoky quartz is an excellent grounding stone that enhances attentiveness and produces the grounding aspects necessary for meditation. It is also a protective stone that has been used in tribal ceremonies to enhance stability and provide protection. Smoky quartz is a "stone of cooperation" that works to diffuse communication deficiencies and to dissolve mental and emotional blockages. It can be used to regulate liquids within the body and to relieve disorders of the hands and feet.
