Greetings Crystalworks community.
Finally spring has come! The cherry blossoms have opened and lined the gallery street with the most exquisite pink rosettes. We are celebrating flower formations and all things pink, with a 25% off sale on all pink coloured stones until Mother’s Day (May 14th 2017).
Flower formations are the topic of the month.
Patterns and regularities of form are found in many places in the natural world. When crystals grow in a radiating form it is called a flower formation. This is a rare and beautiful occurrence but one of our favorites so we are always looking for crystalline flowers when we are out on buying trips.
Most quartz minerals can form in burrs and rosettes when the conditions are correct. Selenite forms gypsum flowers in the form of desert roses. Chrysanthemum stone exhibits white flowers (celestine) on a black background matrix. Calcite sometimes forms flowers when it grows into amazing starbursts and under black light transforms into pinks and dark orange red.
Flower formations are amongst the most aesthetic shapes in the crystal world; they are eternal blooms. One of our favourites in the gallery is the Amethyst geode named Lilac that has stalactites that resemble flowers. From tiny palm sized rose quartz flowerets to amethyst burrs large enough to make a statement in your home, we have colourful and exotic crystalline blooms that will suit any budget.
So come and celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring with us and enjoy the beauty that we are so very happy to share with all of you in the Crystalworks Gallery!
