Which are better, rough or tumbled stones?
There’s no overall “better.” When a stone forms into points and clusters, I prefer to use them because their energy has not been altered. Stones which don’t usually appear in such formations, such as chrysocolla, malachite, and rhodochrosite, are often enhanced by being polished. Certainly, they are often more beautiful. When a stone is carved into a shape with particular meaning, i.e., spheres, eggs, pyramids, this can also heighten its power.
What’s the difference between natural crystals and Austrian crystals?
Natural crystals are found in the earth, where they were formed millions of years ago. They come in a variety of mineral compositions, colors, and shapes. Austrian crystals are human-made, and can also be called leaded glass.
