Smoky Quartz has a way of drawing the ethereal into manifestation. When one is wearing or carrying a Smoky Quartz, one is actually more likely to see such phenomena as ghosts, UFO's, fairies and spirit guides. Rather than raising one’s vibration, it draws the entities or phenomena into one’s auric field and down to one’s level of perception. For similar reasons, Smoky Quartz is useful for helping one bring one’s most potent dreams and inspired ideas into physical reality.
