We are very professional and only sell online through our own website or bricks and mortar shop in Sydney. We have tried the likes of ebay many years ago and found these types of online shops are fraught with dishonest sellers and too many fakes. Also the likes of ebay take a large cut making the product more expensive and they don’t pay their fair share of tax.

Some useful information.
Crystals may need cleaning if they are dusty, dirty or have accumulated some negative energies. It’s like if your walking down the road and someone is whistling a happy tune and says “Good morning” with a big smile – this is contagious and would put you into a good mood.

Dr. Masaru Emoto
who proved scientifically that intention can create beautiful ice crystals and clean water that was once dirty.

He would use words like love hope faith happiness, pictures and music. Thanks you Dr.Masaru Emoto.

Then project positive thought into crystal, say in your mind or out aloud “Crystal cleanse your self, be good and be free. Thank you”. Don’t forget to thank the crystal and this is best done when you are in a clear state of mind and in a good positive mood.
Full Moon Cleansing
Put Crystals to be cleaned in a window where the full moon light can bathe the Crystals overnight.
Washing Solid Crystals
Quartz and solid crystals can be cleaned in warm or cool water. Hot water can cause a crystal to crack, fracture or break from thermal stresses. Just run water from tap or hose over Quartz, this will clear all the dust away. You could use a mild dish wash detergent and scrub with brush then rinse.
Many Crystals like Calcite, Fluorite and Quartz will fade and bleach out in the direct Sun. We recommend not leaving bright coloured Crystals in the direct Sun for too long.
