About Healing Crystals

We love healing crystals and we hope you do too! We carry both raw and polished. All of our crystals are hand cut and polished. We do not cleanse our crystals before shipping because they can pick up other energies in transit to you. You will want to first cleanse your crystals before using them. More information about the benefits of crystals and how to cleanse them is below.

There are many other blogs about crystals that are very well written so I am going to link you to them for a lot of this information. What's the sense in trying to reinvent the wheel right? Plus, it helps the other blogs get traffic. Without further ado...

How to Cleanse Your Crystals

Rough vs Tumbled Crystals

I agree with Cathy on this one. I think that rough/raw crystals in their natural state would have more purity than ones that have been polished. I believe that depending on methods used to tumble and polish the crystals. Some commercialy produced crystals are treated with harsh chemicals such as ammonia to give them their shine. I use tumbler grit which is a is a silicon carbide powder which is found in nature so I still think the polished stones we make have just as good of healing intentions. Cathy's blog goes into further detail: http://mimosaspirit.com/crystal-controversy-rough-vs-tumbled.
