Inspired by Aten/Aton, the Sun God in traditional ancient Egyptian religion. Aten was the original sun god that the more popular sun god Ra was derived from. Aten was more of an aspect of Ra and is depicted as a solar disk terminating in human hands. Aten creates the son in the mother's womb, the seed in men, and has generated all life.

PROPERTIES: Smoky Quartz has always been known as one of the strongest and most effective tools for dissolving and transmuting negative energies. Not only will it protect one's aura and body from negative vibrations, but also change those existing negative energies into something more positive.
The name Smoky Quartz was first heard of in the realm of gemstones in 1837. It was reported by mineralogist James Dwight Dana who named the brown Quartz crystal as such due to its semblance to smoke.
