Today I received a shipment of crystals from Crystal Age. I was so excited to open up the package to see what had arrived – I love getting new crystals and stones to work with. Crystal Age has a nice selection of stones, including some things that I hadn’t heard of before.
My package arrived wrapped well (something I always appreciate when receiving new stones). I was surprised at how quickly it arrived coming from Europe.
I carefully removed the bubble wrap to reveal my new treasures! One thing I was disappointed to see was that most of the stones (i.e. the tumbled pieces) were not labeled, but one look back at my online order made it pretty easy to figure out which stones were which.
I received 2 pieces of tumbled Black Apatite, 1 piece of tumbled Lakelandite (also known as Basalt with Bytownite inclusions), 3 pieces of tumbled Mother of Pearl, 3 pieces of tumbled Shell Jasper, 3 pieces of tumbled Yellow Opal, a Blue Lace Agate Power Bracelet, a “Blades of Light” Quartz crystal point from Colombia, a rough piece of Blue Andean Opal from Peru, an a rough piece of Violet Scapolite.
The quality of the stones I received was exactly what was shown in the photographs. I was so pleased with what I received.
The energy of the stones was great and I was excited to work with these “new to me” crystals. I was already familiar with the Violet Scapolite (although the piece I purchased on eBay was quite pale) so I was excited to see the deep, purple color of the Scapolite. I was also familiar with the Blue Andean Opal, but the piece I have is very opaque whereas the piece I received from Crystal Age was quite gemmy. It was good to see that the Scapolite and Opal came with nice information cards (since they were the two pricier stones in the bunch).
Over the next few weeks, I will be working with some of the new stones I received and writing about their properties and how they can be used for healing based on my experiences. Stay tuned for fun updates!
