View Full Version : Crystal Crazy!!! Somebody Stop Me...

I am crystal crazy!

I can't stop myself from buying Labradorite and Kyanite.

I bought a beautiful strand of Kyanite beads, tablet shaped, and have made earrings, a necklace and bracelet with them, and mixed in some Lab, some Denim Lapis, Smokey Quartz...I am decked out in stones.

I have Selenite in the Tarot cabinet, a beautiful Merkaba that was a gift and is an Amethyst, I have Chevron Amethyst stones in the bedroom, quartz everywhere and there seems to be no end in sight!

I even have a very small crystal skull of Mookite, and she is just so cute. She has a name, and I found her at the shop where I read. I picked her up and noticed a little crystal chip in her nose. Well, I had to pick it out, and I was laughing because I was thinking I'm always wiping someone's nose, and when I got that chip out, no kidding, I felt some relief from the little cutey. So I had to take her home!!!!

Now I am a rock hound, but I have never been into crystals.

Suddenly I can't get enough of them. I'm even thinking of ways to decorate with them, that are fairly out of the ordinary.

I just have to say that the Kyanite is really doing something powerful for me. I wear it and feel so much better. I have to wear it when I'm reading now, along with the Lab. It really helps me to stay grounded, and I just feel more in tune and relaxed.

Wow. Is anyone else addicted to a particular crystal???

I am a Tourmaline freak!!! I love stones in general though. Kyanite is a great one, also one that doesn't need to be cleansed.
A Mookite skull, COOL:D
We just had a gem show here and I picked up some more Tourmaline and a few other items and had a Tanzanite ring made.
Rock Lover all around!

Oh, Tourmaline...

I am on the look out for a NICE piece of Watermelon Tourmaline for my heart chakra work....we have one at the store, but it isn't mine, doesn't speak to me.

But, I have a Moldavite pendant on hold for myself...OOO-LA-LA. It is a Chunk and is set in Sterling, holy moly it is so nice. I'm told not everyone can wear it, and boy I had better not be one of those! And the price is so inexpensive for Moldavite...I can't wait to get it. Won't be soon tho. Won't be soon!

Also on the lookout for some Pietersite...what is it with me and the ...ites???? Are they all related???

If you are drawn to a stone suddenly, strongly, or inexplicably, you need its energies a lot at that time. Lately I have been buying little bits of citrine -- the inexpensive tumbled kind -- one or two pieces at a time, almost every time I come across it in a shop. It looks irresistibly cheery, and I need some extra cheer now...as well as the prosperity it also represents.

So look up the stones online or in a book, and see if some of their properties resonate with a special need in your life right now. The result might be interesting.

I went through an amethyst phaze a couple of months ago, then a tiger eye one, then a selenite one.

At all times if I see a nice piece I have to grab it up is malachite and fluorite.

I think that if you find a stone you MUST have then you are meant to have it for whatever reason weather it is for yourself now or for soemthing in the future.

I keep wanting MORE amethyst and florite--when I hadn't bought anything in years! Acquired about 5 pieces of each in the last 2 months (some rather big pieces) and am restraining myself from buying more . . . well, maybe just a LOOK today . . .

Love the nose-cleaning! Hey, mothers know what's needed!

Emeraldgirl, Image maker,
Another Amethyst-addict and Malachite-maniac here. ;)
When I go crystal hunting, I have my shopping list, trying to find one's I do not have in my collection yet. BUT, if I see malachite or amethyst I just have to get at least one of each. I just can't help it, there's just something about those two that are so special to me that my collection of them just keeps growing. :)

My latest Amethyst faves:
Cactus Amethyst points.
I have one with four terminations and it is so beautiful.
I have another at the store on hold...my on hold pile is growing.

I also love Celestite. I have some Angelite from some months ago, but I really like the Celestite better...another ite. go figure.

I am a freak for opal, labradorite, rainbow moonstone, and quartz.

I love all quartz...but in particular those spiffy clear pointies, and smokey quartz!...oh...and yes!...rose quartz too!

And citrine. I am a sucker for citrine. maybe it's the clearness, or the golden color...or the fact that rainbows so often appear in it!

I would probably collect tourmalines too...if I could afford it!
like the watermelon, or multishades....

and ametrine as well!

oh heck...I love all my rocks. :D

Well, Elf...at least you have not resorted to Stone Porn yet! hee hee!

Not that I want to act as the tempter here or anything, but has anyone perused this website for crystals?

Such good stuff at such good prices. Could tempt a saint.

I have been "crystal crazy" for awhile now....most of my pieces are small, polished stones that were fairly inexpensive, but I have some special pieces that I could never part with. My favorite stones are malachite, selenite and amber....I have to carry or wear some combination of these daily, along with my clear quartz point.

I recently picked up two lovely pieces, and both had been on my crystal "wishlist" for a long time. I have an aqua aura cluster, with several perfect points, that sits on my nightstand. The color is just unbelievable. Also got some rainbow obsidian polished and shaped into heart shapes....it is a very soothing energy, very positive and warm.

Oh and elf--thanks for reminding me that I NEED to get my hands on some Labradorite and Kyanite....I will be seeing a rock dealer next week and I really hope she has some nice, sparkly little treasures for me...

Hehehehe! Great posts!
I'm addicted to everything! But one crystal I can't stop to buy a lot of specimens is clear quartz. I simply love to have a lot of them, in many shapes.
Another thing I love to have is agate geodes **

you are welcome luna.
Why should I be alone in my pursuit for the perfect crystal combination?

I love crystals. Unabashedly and jubilantly shouted,


"I LOVE ROCKS!"

The only reason I don't buy more tarot decks is because I MUST buy more rocks.

I just bought a small piece of this yesterday--can't find anything about it on the web, but the color is gorgeous. Does anyone know what it IS?

Here's some info I found on aqua aura:

I got a lot of hits when I entered "crystal aqua aura" into google.

Here's a link to aqua aura on ebay

It looks gorgeous. I may need some.

Thanks for those links! The one I bought is darker teal than most of those shown--like deep water clearly lit. Gorgeous!

For me it was love at first sight when I discovered aqua aura in one of my crystal books, so I went online and did some research (GREAT links wizzle). I checked in all the shops around here and came up with nothing; I came close to purchasing an aqua aura necklace online, but it wasn't quite what I wanted and expensive for such a small stone.

THEN when I found this one....it just called to me from behind a glass case, I didn't even know for sure what it was, but I knew I HAD to have it!!! And I paid about the same for this cluster as I would have paid for a tiny, round, smooth piece set inside a silver pendant. I am VERY pleased to have found this little beauty!!! :D

Also a rock fiend :)

although I've been drilled from an early age to feel severe guilt at spending money, so I do alot of looking around on the ground shopping...

Unfoutunately all that said... I'm a serious Lapis/ Jade lover.

I can't hold onto lapis, I always give them away

My jade pieces are few, and recently I've developed an obsession with
red coral... anyone priced that lately, sigh.... I bought some anyway, had to have it :)

Don't actually know what any of them mean or are supposed to do though??

Never thought to look, I just cuddle them when I need to and it works wonders every time! :)

Love, Ankou
