smoky quartz is connected to the crown chakra and acts as a grounding stone to connect you to the earth. it cleanses the energy around you and redirects negative energy back into the earth, simultaneously anchoring you. it is the perfect stone if you’re feeling scattered or unsettled. hold it in your palm during rituals, or place stones around your house for ongoing support.
