My partner has been getting more into crystals and crystal jewelry crafting lately, so I decided it was time to get some fun beads for us to play with.
I did a lot of research for reputable crystal shops and was looking for any that:
- Sold authentic crystals (none of those Amazon horror stories where the color washes off)
- Sold crystals prepared specially for making jewelry and crafting
- Had good reviews
- Had good prices that didn’t require bulking in bulk (no minimum $100 orders please!)
I ended up choosing a crystal reseller called Fire Mountain Gems & Beads and placed a trial order.
I got: Amethyst, Olive “Jade” (Serpentine), Obsidian, Fluorite, Labradorite, Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Peridot, Garnet, and Lava Rock.
The stones comes in different styles, lengths, sizes, and qualities. I got a range of most lower quality stones, but I was overall pretty impressed with what I got!
Things were packaged pretty well. The string the garnets were on had broken, so taking them out was rather messy. Also one fluorite cheap had broken- but that’s it. Things are in pretty good shape.
Have you purchased anything from Fire Mountain before? Do you use another similar crystal jewelry seller that you would recommend?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
