Spirit Quartz (Cactus Quartz)

Spirit quartz is a unique variety of quartz crystal from South Africa that has a central quartz crystal with numerous smaller cystals surrounding it.  Spirit quartz may be found in dark purple, lilac, ametrine, citrine or white.  These specimens of spirit quartz and fairy quartz are of suitable size for use in jewelry making or as small display specimens.   

Fairy Quartz

Fairy quartz is a variation of spirit quartz where the large crystal is generally thin and elengate and the smaller crystals are very small and cover the entire surface of the large crystal.  The size and shape of fairy quartz make them perfect for wire wrapping.

Obelisks - Grid Points - Wands - Generators

These small obelisks or grid points are perfect for creating your crystal grids, for display or, they are small enough to use for your jewelry needs.  There are many varieties of crystal available.  This is the only material on my site where you do not select the exact individual point.  I will select them for you based on the energy of the stones at selection.  If you do wish to select specific points, please contact me so I can allow you to do so.

Rare Cripple Creek Turquoise

Turquoise is a rare stone that is popular in jewelry, particularly Native American work.  Turquoise is a copper mineral and is found associated with other copper minerals such as chrysocolla, cuprite, malachite, azurite, and shattuckite.  This rare turquoise is from Colorado and it is naturally hard, which means that it can be cut and shaped without the need for stabilization.
