Smoky Quartz or Morion: Magical and Healing Effect, Zodiac signs, Chakras, Taking Care, Identifying Fake

Morion is a black crystal. In general, smoky quartz that has become extremely dark and does not allow light to pass through is called morion.

Crystals contain trace amounts of aluminum and become smoky quartz when exposed to natural radiation underground. It is believed that morion has been exposed to radiation for a longer period of time, becoming darker and developing a black color (although morion itself is not radioactive).

In the rough state, brown or gray minerals such as feldspar and dolomite are often attached like scabs, and fine cracks and damage are seen on the surface.

In the polished state, it looks just like black tourmaline at first glance. Originally, it was black smoky quartz from the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland. However, after that, it became common to call all dark quartz crystals smoky quartz.

Smokey Quartz is also called Cairngorm.

Also referred to as Morion. The prevailing theory is that it came from “Moros”, which means black in Spanish, but there is no established theory.

Both Cairngorm and Morion have become more popular and have become more common in the region. Therefore, of course, there is no mineral definition.

Grounding is “putting your feet on the ground.” In modern society, the physical aspect tends to be neglected, only consciousness and spirit expand and become unrealistic, and tend to be in a floating state, which may cause depression and withdrawal. I will be told. In such a case, the work of returning to the original integrated self is called grounding.

Magical effects of Smoky Quartz:

The most well-known meaning and effect of Morion is “amulet”. Since ancient times, it has been used by shamans and psychics around the world as a stone to exterminate demons and disperse evil spirits.

Black stones such as onyx are often referred to as amulets and wicked stones, but among them, black quartz is exceptional and is so popular that there are enthusiastic followers.

Even if you say amulet, it is not a way to put up a barrier and bounce it off. It is a magical image that wraps the coming evil with a black cloth and instantly erases it. Instead of bouncing back, it takes in and disassembles. With this, no matter how strong the opponent is, there is no way to attack.

It is more apt to say “amulet stone” rather than a talisman stone.

This point is probably due to the grounding effect described in “Healing effect” in another item. Morion is said to help bring the energy of light down to the bottom chakra and take root.

Smokey Quartz is a huge collection of energy

 At first glance, Morion calms down and gives the impression of an immovable stone that does not move. It reminds me of a lonely and quiet monk, wearing a black robe from his head.
 However, when we go out with each other, we find that we are neither lonely nor quiet, nor quiet.
 Morion is black not because it captures the darkness. It is black because the light is extremely dense and concentrated. It’s like a sunspot. A huge amount of energy gathered at one point at a higher level than the roaring and burning solar flare, running at a speed exceeding the light, overlapping and resonating. When the intense energy reached a certain critical point, it materialized.
 Morion is such a stone.
 If you touch the intense energy inside the stone, your tears will dry in an instant. The evil spirits will disappear silently and the negative vibrations will be broken down.
 Because of these characteristics, Morion can be carried as an accessory for amulets, placed in the center of a house or in a place where evil tends to accumulate, or even in a place where miscellaneous people gather and collide with each other. It is thought that “” has been done.
