Amethyst Smoky Quartz History Mythology – Amethyst Smoky Quartz is a combination of two distinct Quartz – Amethyst and Smoky Quartz and is referred to by both names Smoky Amethyst and Amethyst Smoky depending on the dominant stone within the crystal. The two stones combine beautifully and you will find the more dominant the stone in the combination the more the piece will hold the properties of that specific stone and the balance will be created making each piece individual in the energies it gives. This is a fairly recent stone that is emerging more and more so there are no specific traditions surrounding it.
Amethyst History Mythology Information: The word Amethyst comes from the Greek word ‘amethustos’ which means non-inebriated. Crystal cups made of Amethyst were used due to the belief that it would have a sobering effect on the user and they would not get drunk. Konrad von Megenbery in the middle ages defined the crystal as being a mineral that ‘makes a person better, disperses bad thoughts, brings good commonsense, and makes one mild and gentle.
Smoky Quartz History Mythology Information – In many European Countries throughout history Smoky Quartz has been a good luck stone that would be worn as a protective talisman. The belief is still strong today and you will find crucifixes/cross cut from Smoky Quartz. References to the sacred stone Smoky Quartz and its uses in Scotland date back to the druids and it is to this day the National Gem Stone of Scotland.
Amethyst Smoky Metaphysical Healing Properties Information: Amethyst Smoky Quartz brings together two wonderful stones and combines their properties to bring forth a high vibrational stone that is very protective as well as detoxifying or cleansing to one’s body and soul. Just like Amethyst, Amethyst Smoky Quartz helps to open the Third Eye and assist you in contacting higher beings/spiritual energies and once you have made contact it will then through the Smoky Quartz element help to ground those energies firmly. The two stones work wonderfully in combination to clear and then shield once all negative energies/being/influences are removed helping to prevent them from returning. This stone can help you to break previous contract/ties made in past lives so that you can move forward freely and continue on your own spiritual path without the burden of past involvements.
I find that these stones and the vibrations they give off change depending on the crystal combination within. Working with them very much brings through the higher self aspect and the grounding you need to access it. Affirmation: I can become all I am meant to be knowing I am protected every step of the way.
