Crystals anyone?

Postby Alijay » 08 Jun 2008, 22:13

Just wondering if there was a crystal section and i just havent found it?
or is there enough interest that we could add a crystal section? so we might chat about crystal healing, crystal collecting, from Balls to pendulums etc..

I hope there isn't a crystal section. Personally, I hate this New Age Crystal fetish.
In the words of a Paul Mitchell song
"You've just paid very good money for a souvenir of the rape of the earth..."

The issues of environmental destruction and human exploitation in the crystal industry are well known so I won't bore you with them here. There is plenty on the net, just search for 'gem' , 'mining', 'damage' and 'environment'...

Hi Alijay. We really must have a big chat this week in Glastonbury. First the tarot and now crystals! We seem to have passions in common. :)

As far as there being a thread on crystals here, I do seem to remember that there was one, but I just did a search for it, and couldn't find it. I'm sure someone will be along with it soon if it survived.

There are posts on dowsing and pendulums in Druid Craft & the Old Ways.

I found the right part of the forum, in the contemporary druidry section, Druid college of healing,
under Stone therapy,

Baobab, Looking forward to the weekend and our tarot/crystal chat!

Donata, I had a look at the Druid craft & the old ways, and found a thread on crystal balls, thank you,
