HOW I BECAME ADDICTED TO ROCKS: THIS IS MY STORY

Crescent City, California December 1981

I started picking up rocks with my Granny on our summer vacations to Crescent City, California. We would pick up the agate on the beach. Sometimes we would lay in the pebbles and sift through them, holding them up to the sunlight to see which were most translucent. The top layer, dried by the sun, (which beckoned us to sit and dig) was deceptive. The sea water would seep up from the under layer and soak our knees and elbows. When the agates we found dried, we would lick them to rediscover the shine.

QUESTIONS FOR THE CRYSTAL PEOPLE: Can crystals be used to guide others without their consent?

I received this question, and immediately one of my crystal Guides, (not Venus), who comes through with a heavy accent has stepped in to answer the question. When I inquired as to why there is an accent associated with her answers, she said "because it is easier for you to determine that the answers are coming from us if we answer with an accent." However the answers come, I am both honored and blessed! At any rate, here is the question, followed by the answer.

How Do You Store, Display, and Enjoy All Your Crystals?

Last week I asked you for your questions, and this was one of the really good ones. Good friend and fellow crystal lover, Melinda, said, “How do you store, display, and enjoy all of your crystals? Do you have them on tables, shelves, in divided containers (cosmetic)? I have seen that some people keep stones in a divided tool upright container (for workshop nuts and bolts and stuff), but this won’t work for me. I love having them all out to enjoy, but I really don’t have the surface space to enjoy all of them. I don’t like them in any drawers or tucked away. My dining room table is no longer a place for us, it is only for my crystal friends (not complaining, just can’t think of creative ways to display and enjoy). Any suggestions you may have will be helpful. Hoping not to have to buy a bigger home for all of my friends! :-)"

So, like I said, that's a great question! It will vary tremendously from person to person, and depending on space requirements and personal preference. I decided that the old adage "a picture's worth a 1000 words" fit nicely into this description, so this blog post will be more of a show and tell.

Clearing a Crystal for Re-Programming; Why, When and How to Clear

I've had a few questions recently about clearing crystals; why to clear them, when, and how. Even though I have covered this topic, it hasn't had a post all its own, so we'll just revisit this extremely easy but very important topic.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO "CLEAR" A CRYSTAL?

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 6 of 6: Bringing It Home

This is the final post of the series on digging crystal in Arkansas. Last time we discussed how to find crystal (what to look for). This time we'll cover what to do with your crystal once you get it home, namely, cleaning.

When you're finished digging and ready to go home, the best way to pack your crystal for transport is with newspaper. If you have used the zip top baggie suggestion I mentioned in post number four, they can be placed side by side in the floor behind the seats. Clusters can be placed in a flat box with newspaper around and bunched in between them to prevent them from bumping each other. The same goes for any large points you might have found.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 5 of 6: How To Find It

This is a continuation of a series on digging crystal in Arkansas. Last time we discussed what to wear, what tools are essential, and the other intimate details of what to pack in your vehicle. This time let's get down to the actual nitty gritty of digging the crystal and let's talk about what to look for in the tailings themselves.

In the new tailings, you will be looking for sticky masses of clay. At the majority of the mines I have been to, the clay is red. Some mines have different colors of dirt and clay, depending on the composition of the Earth. We'll just discuss the red clay, since it is in the majority, but keep in mind it may differ according to where you are.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 4 of 6: What To Bring

Last time we talked about when the best time is for digging crystal in Arkansas, and covered a little bit about new tailings versus old tailings, dry weather versus wet. Whichever area and whatever weather, crystal digging is a dirty process. Even when it's not wet, the red clay permanently discolors your clothes. In this post we'll talk about what to bring, what type of clothes to wear and what tools are handy to have.

Wear something old that you don't mind getting stained. It is ideal if you have a pair of coveralls or overalls. When you are ready to pack it in and go home, you can strip off your dirty outer layer and ride home in relatively clean, dry clothes. Of course, there are bathrooms at some (not all) of the mines, so you can change before you go home. I find that I am usually too tired to change my clothes, and my truck is testament to this fact. You might want to put old towels or sheets over your seats if you are persnickety and don't want your vehicle to get all dirty, dusty and stained.
