I love how this smoky elestial feels in the hands. It is cool and grounding, really helping you to quiet the chaos all around you and focus on what is important. It has a slight earthy musk, further assisting with the grounding energies. This beautiful spirit is perfect for any meditation practice.
Smoky elestials have a range of color from light to dark and different degrees of depth to their formation, often occurring with phantoms and occasionally even enhydro bubbles. Every smoky elestial has a unique energy; however they all have certain qualities in common. They all have grounding energies, yet combined with their higher vibration energies, they give you the comfort and security you need to explore, knowing that help is nearby if you need it. They make the higher vibration energies more accessible, adjusting it to your current needs and abilities. They are companion crystals, working with you as you grow, matching your needs. They are all master healers; most have a golden energy like honey that is soothing and nourishing. They work to cleanse and purify all systems of the body. Every healing collection should include at least one smoky elestial!
Phantom quartz records the stages of growth of a crystal. Phantoms mark a time of no growth, where another mineral has settled on the surface before the crystal began to grow again. Sometimes they mark a different growing condition, creating bands of color, like smoky or amethyst phantoms. Because phantom quartz shows a record in time, they are perfect for those who wish to work with past life recall. They also help you to identify patterns, and the evolution of healing. This is especially helpful for those working through trauma or abuse. Often the same issues crop up over and over again, leading you to believe you are not making any progress. Phantom quartz helps you to look back and see the progress you have made. You may be working on the same issues but now from a higher perspective. Different inclusions will focus the energy in specific ways, for example smoky phantoms are particularly good in breaking old patterns and blockages.
Phantom quartz is especially good for children, assisting them with learning to meditate. Use phantom quartz during stressful periods, or periods of change to facilitate a more peaceful transition. It is also an excellent stone for assisting with healing from abuse issues. It helps one to see the progress in healing, and identify patterns.
Elestial formations are truly beautiful; they are complex in their simplicity. Most elestials are smoky; however you can find this formation in all types of quartz. Elestials are known for their complex layering and etched surfaces. Elestials crystallize in aqueous environments which create their fantastic formation. They are known by many different names, jacare quartz, skeletal quartz, and crocodile quartz just to name a few. Elestials can form as interlocking plates and complex etchings some say the formations look like the scales of a crocodile (hence the origins of that name). With skeletal elestials, you can see layers of crystals almost like the layers of an onion; they are often accented by clay inclusions.
Elestials can also have doorways and self-healed formations; they can appear as wands, scepters, overlays, and sometimes as a combination between an elestial and cathedral. I find them endlessly fascinating; it is so easy to get lost in their formations. While they have certain formations in common, there really is no such thing as a typical elestial.
As elestials form in water they have a strong emotional energy. Elestials are master healers and teachers who work on many levels. They work through the many layers of your body releasing toxins, dissolving obstacles and creating energy flow. Working with elestial crystals will bring an abundance of lessons and change! Elestial Quartz crystals used in body layouts will purge toxicity from the major organs into the bloodstream, from which they can then be released from the body by drinking plenty of water.
The translation for Elestial is “Crystal of the Angels” and thus has a strong link with the Angelic realm. One may retrieve information stored in Elestials by running your hands over the etching of the crystal. Before long your hands start moving on their own and you are reading the crystal much the same way as the blind use Braille language. It is best to clear the mind and have no expectations through this process.
Smoky Quartz should be part of every healer’s collection. Smoky quartz has very joyous energy despite its grounding nature. It is an excellent stone to facilitate grounding especially during directed work with higher energy stones. It helps you feel comfortable in your own skin, relaxed and confident. It assists you to focus on the tasks at hand. Its beautiful energy provides strength and balance and helps you to achieve the same. During times of stress it helps to reign in wayward emotions and ward against nightmares. Smoky quartz also gives a boost to the bodies’ immune system.
