This rare, translucent Hallelujah Junction Clear Tip Smoky Scepter, weighing 3.42 ounces or 97 grams, is from Hallelujah Junction in Nevada. These rare smoky quartz wands are of exceptional quality, with substantial value as mineralogical collector's items, and a unique energy signature that renders them very valuable tools for meditators, engergy healers and Lightworkers.
This two-tone Clear Tip Hallelujah Junction Smoky Scepter almost looks like a phantom and from the photos on this page you can see the growth of this crystal treasure starting and stopping and starting up again. The tip is in perfect condition, which is very rare for the Smoky Hallelujah Junction points we've seen so far. It has a very strong yet gentle healing energy signature and a bit of the quartz matrix still attached at the base of this wand.
This smoky wand is the ideal size to hold in the hand during meditation or to use as a wand during Reiki or other forms of energy treatments. The unique energy signature exhibited by this remarkable Hallelujah Junction smoky wand is related to the unique conditions of the area where it grew.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of the Hallelujah Junction Smoky Quartz
One of the most famous sources of high quality smoky quartz is Petersen Mountain, Nevada, known to rock hounds as Hallelujah Junction.
Petersen Mountain also contains multiple pockets and seams of hydrothermal milky quartz running through the granodiorite matrix like blood vessels through the human body. At the intersections of these quartz veins, mineralogists have discovered pockets of crystals, ranging from 1 centimeter to 2 meters across. It is in these pockets that scepter crystals of smoky quartz, milky quartz, amethyst and citrine are formed.
Lightworkers, crystal healers and meditators have also come to appreciate the unique energetic qualities of Hallelujah Junction Smoky Quartz, which derive from the coloration derived from the mineral composition of these rare and powerful quartz allies.
Mineralogists say there may be more than one cause for the gray to brown to black color range of this very popular form of quartz crystal, ranging from sodium to other minerals in the crystal, including: the presence of trivalent titanium; the presence of carbon compounds; or the presence of sodium.
Most mainstream mineralogists believe that the characteristic dark brown to black color of smoky quartz is produced when clear quartz is exposed to natural radiation emanating from radioactive rocks in the same geological formation where the quartz crystals form and grow. The current scientific hypothesis is that when clear quartz is exposed to radiation, the radiation alters the oxidation states of mineral impurities found within the quartz structure, resulting in smoky quartz.
“The frequent occurrence of smoky quartz in association with rare earth and radioactive minerals is very significant, for later it will be indicated that smoky quartz may have been colored through the action of radioactive elements,” says the University of Michigan’s Edward F. Holden, in a 1925 article inThe American Mineralogist. “In Ontario smoky quartz is a constant associate of radioactive minerals, and the same association is frequent in Madagascar. Enormous smoky quartz crystals occur in the well known radioactive pegmatite of Baringer Hill, Texas.”
“The evidence given thus far is in agreement with the theory that smoky quartz owes its color to atoms of silicon, formed by the disintegration of silica, through the action of radium radiations,” Holden continues. “The mechanism of the formation of the free silicon may perhaps be pictured in this way: The radiations may remove the four outer electrons from a silicon atom, which would then be equally shared by the two associated oxygen atoms. As a result, two free oxygen atoms and a free silicon atom would be formed. They could take no part in the crystal structure since their attractive force for other atoms would have been destroyed. Hence, they should act as small inclusions, the silicon atoms producing the light-scattering and the color so characteristic of smoky quartz. We would expect the silicon atoms to be most effective in scattering light because of their greater atomic weight, and the possibility of the escape of the oxygen atoms.”
From this scientific analysis it is clear that smoky quartz, although quite likely formed through the action of radioactive elements, is not radioactive itself, and this perfectly natural process is not detrimental to the crystals or to human beings utilizing these crystals for ornamentation, in meditation, for crystal healing, or for any other purpose.
Smoky quartz has been a favorite healing stone of shamanistic practitioners around the world for thousands of years.
According to modern day energy healers, smoky quartz works slowly and thoroughly to relieve imbalances in the physical and etheric bodies, with special emphasis on the solar plexus and its associated chakra, the third or Manipura chakra associated with personal power and vital energy. And it works on the hands and feet. Smoky quartz can, over time, help to balance the flow of vital energy throughout the physical and etheric bodies, and aids in the development of a healthy, fully functioning chakra system.

It is an aid in gently releasing blockages caused by negative energy patterns in the emotional body. Smoky quartz has been used as an aid in meditation, for energy healing, and to create a protective barrier of energy around the holder, being grounding and clearing the mind.
