Smoky Quartz and Sister Cats


Smoky Quartz is a personal favourite of mine, in my crystal family. It has a very suave feeling about it, protective and smooth but without being smarmy… think Pierce Brosnan playing Bond…

As a crystal, Smoky Quartz can help lift depression and restore emotional calm, at the same time relieving fear but bolstering your confidence inn your own abilities to cope with different situations. Smoky Quartz is wonderful to help with relieving stress too.

I have a tendency to become overwrought, sometimes, but ten minutes by myself with the trusty Smoky Quartz helps to anchor me… rather than running away with the stress fairies, and actually just washes away the negative emotions… a spiritual shower that gently sponges away the dirt of negativity to let positive thought and clear insight shine through.


A yin/yang stone of balance and harmony, rather like sister cats… Ting and Tooty are litter-sisters – that is irrefutable despite the fact Ting is Siamese coloured and Tooty is all black. It is not uncommon for kittens to be fathered by two different tom cats, as the queen has the ability to – ahem – pick and choose which swimmers find their way home. I’ve never had sister cats before, and it’s lovely to watch as they greet each other – a quick lick to the forehead, or as they play… although sometimes that can end in growly hisses and tufts of fur…


They are funny though… Ting will go Siamese-cross eyes and squint fiercely down her nose as she advances, tail swishing towards Tooty. Tooty – and this never fails – will collapse on her back, legs in the air, displaying a large amount of soft black tummy to bounce on… not so! Ting falls for it every time as Tooty deploys her toe knives and kicky scratches to embrace her sister in combat… Tooty generally wins as she is the – um – heavier cat, although they are both quite tall in the shoulder, compared to the older girls, Charlie and Lily.

The two older girls tend to regard Ting and Tooty fairly dispassionately, more nuisance than family, although sometimes Charlie can be tempted into a terrifying game of chase… terrifying for the cat she is chasing as they are never entirely sure whether she will play or punish… Yet Ting and Tooty will still sleep together with love and affection, perhaps harking back to the sad few days when they were little and lost, cold and frightened… They curl up back to back, or ‘spoon’ each other, sleepily pushing and shoving each other to get comfortable.

However sad I may feel, I cannot help but be lightened by my sister cats… a furry reminder of love and balance.

    1. Definitely…chemicals are becoming over-used with regards to certain conditions. I keep wanting to make up a crystal bag with different varieties for different things and send them to all the world leaders…

    1. LOL..I wouldn’t call it meditation…I’ve tried proper hardcore meditation and I get the giggles…I suppose it’s “Mindfulness” really. I call it “going for a walk in my head” but it’s basically all about taking notice of little things, concentrating on the rhythm of your breathing and letting everything chill, I suppose. I do get anxiety (etc) and it’s just a way of calming things down before it develops into a full blown panic attack requiring brown paper bags..inhalers and lashings of Rescue Remedy…!! Probably completely the wrong way of going about things but it helps me 🙂

  1. They are so beautiful-and I love the way you write about them 🙂 I think Alex is getting even better in capturing the beauty of animals (and things)-if the photos are still taken by him, that is 😉

    1. Oh yes, Alex still does all the photos-I’m so pleased you think he’s getting better 🙂 he did all the headshots for his friends’ uni applications. I need him to build up a large catalogue (LOL) of cat and crystal pictures for when he goes away as I’m not that good with a camera…Pleased you enjoyed the post-thank you :)xx

      Jewellery is a lovely way to wear crystals- you get the necessary contact and look wonderful too! I’m not a big jewellery wearer…my pockets tend to be filled with rocks and I do rattle a bit…my partner always warns me to stay away from deep water!
      Thank you for commenting 🙂
