I've had this question more than once, so thought I would address it here... What do you do when you buy a crystal online, but when it arrives, it is much smaller than you expected? Will it still work?

Obviously if you are looking for a crystal for jewelry or to fit in a certain place (say a desk or coffee table), size might matter. In this way, convenience and use play a part in the question of size. But, energetically speaking, is bigger really better? Does a large point put out more energy than a small point?

Certainly, by mass alone, a 500-pound single crystal point is going to exude more energy than a tiny jewelry point, but this is not to say that the smaller points don't have comparable energy or enough energy to matter. Comparatively speaking, a small crystal might have the same energy as a large point. 


For example, an ant can move ten to fifty times its body weight. Using that gauge, you can see that ants are stronger than humans, ounce for ounce. A small point may be stronger than a large point in the same respect; some very small points are deceptively powerful, meaning that bigger in size doesn't always mean better. Also, it is easy to put a small point around your neck or in your pocket. Wheeling a 500-pound crystal around in a wagon would get tiring after a while, don't you think?

Depending on the crystal, its use and your need, a small point can be every bit as helpful to you as its larger cousin. The old adage is true about not judging a book by its cover (or an item by its size). So if you can get around the notion that bigger is better (we're a society of bigger! and more!), and connect with your new crystal without preconceived ideas (no matter the size), you may find that it has much more to offer than you expected.
