Smokey quartz is one of the premier stones for grounding. It can help even the "flakiest or spaciest" of folks find their way to earth to function fully.
If you are working with the higher realms, smokey quartz can help you come back to the physical world and into your body. It is highly beneficial to use smoky quartz after any meditation or ritual work to help facilitate a grounded spirit.
Smoky quartz is also known to enhance organization and practicality. It can lend focus if you are needing it to help achieve goals or for patience. Another benefit of working with smokey quartz is the protective energies it vibrates in your environment. It is known to absorb and transmute nearly unlimited amounts of negativity by grounding it to the Earth where it can be neutralized.
Working in harmony with other grounding stones such as sugilite, black tourmaline, jet and obsidian you can be sure to feel protected and nicely grounded.
