Our physical world is created from different combinations of protons, neutrons and electrons which form into atoms. These atoms in turn join together to form molecules of particular minerals. When these elements are free to grow , a crystal is formed. Thus, more poetically, crystals are known as the flowers of the mineral kingdom.
To choose a crystal, allow your intuition to make the choice. The crystal may attract your attention by showing a rainbow, becoming warm to the touch, or seeming to say "Choose me". Above all, choose a crystal that you love.
Tumbled stones are microcrystalline, that is the crystals are not visible to the naked eye. They are affordable and portable with many different uses such as in elixirs or in bringing prosperity. None of our stones are dyed and all are of the highest quality available.
Stones available range from the easily found and popular such as amethyst, citrine and rose quartz through to the hard-to-find and rare such as seraphinite, lapis, malachite, larimar, charoite, rhodocrosite and dalmatian stone.

The two left-hand pieces are of Aotea Stone which is a blend of blue kyanite and green fuchsite. Rare Aotea brings growth and harmony and never needs cleaning because of the kyanite content.
In the centre is a Pounamu or Greenstone pendant which, like all nephrite jade, brings wisdom, justice and modesty to its fortunate Earthkeeper and is best but not necessarily given as a gift.
On the right is an Aroha stone pendant which brings unconditional love, peace and joy and is excellent to wear at the heart.
