New Crystals (and mini challenge)! 👀

After looking through so many great crystal shops and sites earlier this year I was so excited to order a bunch of new crystals and fun things.

Sad to say, the mail here (between the pandemic and the unreliable courier) has been a nightmare and 8 packages were lost in transit :scream::package:

Took over a month and a crazy amount of phone calls, emails, and visits to the post office to get a refund from the courier :sweat:. Domestic orders seem to arrive without problem (go figure) but it’s safe to safe I’ve been limiting international orders for the time being.

However~

I caved in about two weeks ago and couldn’t resist placing a small order with a UK crystal shop- I didn’t want to say anything before it arrived (just in case) but they are here!!! :partying_face:

Crystal challenge! Can you guess the crystals? :laughing:

Answers hidden here....
  • Rainbow bracelet: citrine, carnelian, garnet, lapis lazuli, aquamarine
  • Purple and yellow: Ametrine
  • Purple and white: Amethyst (worry stone)
  • Orange bracelet: Carnelian (given away by the pamphlet :laughing:)
  • White and yellow: Citrine
  • Greenish black with red specks: Bloodstone
  • Red with stripes: Red Jasper
  • Dark black-looking stone: Blue Tiger’s Eye
  • Orange: Carnelian

I am so happy with everything I ordered and even more happy that it all arrived safely! :confetti_ball:

What I really wanted the most was the Carnelian- a great stone for Libra season, and also creativity and motivation. Like my recent spell may have hinted at, I always need more of these things! :joy:

For anyone interested, the shop is called The Psychic Tree and is based in the UK. Shipping within the UK is free under a certain amount, and is very reasonable for the rest of Europe. They have a strong ethics promise where they pledge about both the authenticity and moral responsibility of their stones :+1:

Hooray for crystals! I studied up on Carnelian, but I’ll be spending this week learning more about the others :books:

Blessed be to all! :gem::sparkles:

You’re doing it again!
:heart_eyes: That’s my favourite online shop at the moment!!! I’m ordering from them constantly- it’s where I get all my chip bracelets :see_no_evil:
I love their little guide books - I’m obsessively collecting them and adding them to the crystal section of my grimoire every time I order a new one :joy:

Is that the chakra bracelet?
Ametrine, Amethyst, Bloodstone, Citrine, Carnelian, Carnelian bracelet not sure about the red and black ones.

Wow @janelle, @christina4, @marissa, and @Limeberry ! :clap::heart_eyes: I know seeing the crystals through a picture on the computer is much harder than looking at them in real life- I am really impressed with all of you! You all got way more than I would have been able :laughing: Bravo to the crystal masters! :grin::two_hearts:

That is too funny we found the same shop :joy: This was my first order with them and I already love them too- I caved in because shipping was so cheap (a few other stores in the UK cost more to ship to Poland than the cost of the actual order itself- boo!). The little book is so helpful and cute :open_book:

They are beautiful! I’m horrible at naming them. Only the basics like amethyst. I ordered some during the pandemic and need to keep their labels with them because I won’t remember what they are. Lol…

Right?! They’re the best! I always order incense from them too :joy:
Just had some crystals delivered today if anyone fancies another guessing game :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Ohhhhh @Katt- nice find! :star_struck: A beautiful Turquoise and lovely Tiger’s Eye- and they come with such cute charms too! Will you add them to your altar space, or maybe put them on a bag or backpack to carry their good luck with you? :gem::blush:

Hahaha I must be the last one to find out about the Psychic Tree, @mrs - they really are awesome! And shipping was so fast too… hmmm, I just got this order and I have to admit I’m already planning another order again soon :laughing:

I’m in the same boat, @walter! The little cards are my lifeline for all but the most basic crystals :sweat_smile: I’m at the point where I can remember the names of the crystals I have, but when it comes to memorizing properties? Woosh~ :laughing: But I’m practicing this week! I’ve found watching YouTube videos really helps- the visuals and sounds really help the information to stick :+1:

@TheTravelWitch i actually put them both on my key ring, I was thinking about cutting a few stones off to put on my alter as well as making something I can wear or carry on me

Well done, @elizabeth7! :clap: Gosh, everyone is so talented at identifying crystals- I am so impressed! I need to study more :joy::+1:

That sounds like a great idea, @Katt! There are a lot of stones on the keychains so I think there are plenty to wear, add to your altar, and still have enough to keep as keychains. Enjoy! :gem::two_hearts:
