    What's Inside a Quartz Geode? Let's Crack it Open!

    I came across this short video/gif of a quartz geode being cracked open. Click here if that does't load. I think it's very educational as many people out there don't realize how crystals can form inside rocks like this. It can be common to think that they grow on the surface, or roof, such...

    Conscious Global Contact: ( Communication via Crystals w/ Extraterrestrial Consciousness )

    Hello, hello! It's me, Casey ( previously 'omcasey' ) I decided to begin another thread on this topic as there was a bit of a glitch-up with my old account and being able to get onto the board so Laron helped me delete it and begin anew. I've spent the last year transitioning over to the new...

    Does glass in a quartz crystal shape still work like quartz?

    There are some Asian sellers selling perfectly clear "quartz" crystals very cheap. I suspect they are just cut glass. Will these still work as quartz does because of the shape? Or do I really need real quartz? Would the quartz-shaped glass be useful for anything besides looking nice?

    Whoever said Diamonds are a girls (or boys) best friend?

    There are some amazing crystals out there and amethysts with a dark rich purple can be quite attractive. I always had a strong interest in Ceylon sapphires, with the deep blues. What's your favorite mineral/crystal/stone when it comes to value, such as what a diamond may mean to many, but...

    Types of Clear Quartz Crystal Points

    Here are seven clear quartz crystals of mine. On first glance you may ponder and conclude that they are all the same. But each individual crystal is of a unique design, based upon their termination points (the end of the crystal) which have naturally formed within the Earth. Here is a list of...

    Yes, there is actually an official scientific scale to go by, when it comes to crystals and stones, called Mohs. For those out there who have a collection of crystals, this can be really helpful, but it's also rather interesting anyway. The Mohs Scale is a qualitative original scale that...
