Smoky quartz is a variety of quartz, always black or brown in colour. The quartz stone family also includes amethyst (purple quartz), rose quartz (pink-red), citrine (yellow quartz), as well as all the various agates and jaspers.

Smoky quartz is often found in beautiful black crystals. It can be cut into beautiful brilliant gemstones and it makes an equally beautiful crystal specimen.

Smoky quartz is the most often sought after for its healing or crystal properties. It is said to increase endurance and to amplify energy. Some believe that it may give you an energy boost, and that it can help you clear your thoughts to better make decisions. 

Smoky Quartz is an excellent grounding stone. It gently neutralizes negative vibrations and is detoxifying on all levels.

Our Master carver, Lina, comes from a family of carvers. Her grandfather was a Burmese Jade carver in the early 1900’s. Lina has been carving since she was a young child, starting with wood and soon migrating to beautiful stones such as Canadian Jade, Alberta Petrified Wood, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and other crystals and stones. Lina designs and carves all our signature pieces.

Lina currently lives in the Greater Vancouver Area, where her studio is located. While she carves our larger (signed) pieces, her apprentices carve each of our smaller, or unsigned, carvings. Lina trains her apprentices in her personal, unique style of carving, which utilizes as much of the natural stone as possible to create a truly unique bear. This is a direct contradiction to standard stone carving methods, which utilizes an “assembly line” method of carving, where each bear will turn out exactly the same as the one before. Because of Lina’s method, each apprentice is tasked with creating something unique with as little stone waste as possible, which teaches them to problem solve and really utilize and cultivate their own creative methods. 

Whenever possible, Lina sources Canadian stones for her carvings, including Jade sourced from across British Columbia, and Alberta Petrified Wood, two of her favourite materials. Star Marble, Rhodonite, Hematite, and Sodalite are also used when available. She believes that if a carving reminds you of a place, the stone should be from there as well.

Each piece is truly one of a kind and all are inspired by Lina’s time in the Rockies. May you enjoy your signed carving, as it is a beautiful artist piece, and a lasting memory of your time in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
