About

OLYMPUS 1 In Studio Greytak’s Olympus 1, a powerful wand of smoky quartz, the stone of truth, floats between shining rings of mirror-polished bronze. The energy of millions of years of healing vibrations from the earth is held fast by the warrior metal of courage and focus. This is indeed a powerful piece. A base of dark walnut grounds these superstars with deep wisdom and inspiration. All quartz crystals are regarded as powerful light stones able to channel the highest energies. Smoky quartz fuses that celestial power with an earthier, more primal essence. Where clear quartz is used to communicate with the sky spirits, smoky quartz has an additional link to the Earth gods and goddesses. The result is a gem of immense strength and stability. Smoky quartz begins as clear quartz formed under heat and pressure usually within granite. Over time, the granite host releases a natural form of energy that changes the atomic structure of the quartz. As a result, smoky quartz crystals range from a pale amber brown to storm cloud gray to an almost opaque black. Ancient Druid priests revered the saturated, earthy-colored stones and used them for scrying, healing, and the most sacred of rituals. All forms of smoky quartz contain powerful dual energies that are ideal for purifying one’s environment. Negativity and stress are neutralized and dispersed while the mind is opened to fresh light and positivity. Hold a smoky quartz crystal and feel the waves of calm wash over the soul. Ancient Sumerians used copper- and tin-rich rocks to build campfire rings. As the stones became heated, the metals melted and mixed, forming bronze. This world-changing metal brought tools, weapons, armor, building materials, and a new sense of value to the ancient world. It is often associated with fire because of its reddish color. As an alloy of copper and tin, bronze takes on the properties of both but is generally thought to enhance courage and practicality and encourage focus on work. It is also thought to be good luck for warriors. Just outside the small town of Benevento in Campania, Italy, witches gathered beneath a walnut tree. On stormy nights they would come together and dance beneath its generous canopy, casting spells then riding off on brooms of sorghum. So goes the legend, one of many surrounding the ancient walnut tree. Called Juglans regia, “Jupiter’s royal acorn,” by the Romans, the nut of the tree was reserved for royalty as it’s brain-like structure was said to enhance wisdom. Heavy, strong, and shock-resistant, walnut trees have been used for centuries in the building of furniture, instruments, gunstocks, and even shoes. Walnut is synonymous with intellect and mental aptitude. It brings intelligence, wisdom, knowledge, and inspiration. Place this piece in a home or office where truth is revered above all and let it help you reach your highest intention. MATERIALS Smoky quartz Mirror polished bronze Walnut.
