If you have read our other crystal descriptions we are not trying to dole out healing. If the crystals do that for you, wonderful. For us, its the magic of earths creations....the permutations of nature. This smokey black quartz crystal summons the mystery of what happens when things suddenly shift and you find yourself on a new path in life. Generally crystals grow in points facing a similar direction but in this crystal life twisted it and pressure forced one crystal to oppose the other. The fork in the road....The prodigal son...The reminder to always challenge yourself to grow in all possible directions.
