I actually got this particullarly special crystal before yule (december 21) but i wanted to share it with all of you out there. It's a 5 1/2" clear calcite sphere that has the most amazing "rainbow" shimmers inside. And the best part of it all is that i got this beauty for (are you ready???) $20!!!!!! I couldn't believe my luck when i found this in an import store in my local mall. They had all these different sizes and colors of these calcite spheres and they were all in the "clearance" section. The original price tag for my new lovely was $100!! I'm still giddy over the whole event! Just wanted to pass along some of my yuletide joy to all off you. Happy holidays and happy new year to each and every one of you!!!
