    Shirley Said: 'Diamonds Are Forever!'

    These are simply a must for this little poor girl! You'll make a fine impression on me with a few diamonds! No, I collect polished stones, all kinds, crystals. They are fascinating, and I hope to go on a crystal shining course just as soon as I can raise the money for it!

    Pretty Purposeful

    I wear Aventurine around my neck - after a year of terrible loss and many challenges I was quite disorientated and had lost a lot of the will to go on I'd had before. I was having quite a tough day I walked into a Crystal shop and asked for a stone that may aid in the grief and...

    OMG

    This is going to sound like a commercial, but I really love the faceted parcels of gemstones from JTV.  I've gotten 2.  They're relatively cheap, and I LOVE when they arrive and I get to sort thru them and see what I've gotten.  It's like a treasure hunt.  I...

    I Prefer Them Raw

    I don't like it when crystals have been overly man handled. I understand that most are, but I prefer when at least some of the natural state is preserved. I feel the vibrations of the stone better when it isn't tumbled or polished to ****. But all in all stones are gorgeous...
