I’m a rock hound. It’s one of the reasons I got into jewelry-making, and I’ve spent many years studying the metaphysical properties of stones and crystals. I just love them. I’ve collected since I was a little girl, and this was encouraged by my mother and father.
Now my mother is also a rock hound. In fact, her collection is much, much bigger than mine. She has her bookshelves littered with books and crystals in various colors and shapes. It’s really beautiful.
I’m in the process of making a wand, so I asked her if she had any spare spirit cactus points (also known as amethyst stalactites or even fairy points). My intuition told me that these were the stones I needed for my wand.
Well, she dragged out her boxes of extra crystals and told me to pick out what I wanted. Not just of the fairy points, but the other boxes too. I was in absolute heaven yesterday. So now I’m going to brag and show you what I picked out for myself, and the few others I found for friends that have done things for me recently as a thank you.
Purple Fluorite cluster. I’m going to put this on my little altar to… I’m not sure who. They’ve not exactly shown up yet, though I’m feeling the urge to build an altar anyway. This one will go above my desk that I make jewelry at.
These are red hematite in quartz. I absolutely love these. The photos don’t do justice to the worlds inside of them. I can’t wait to start working with the two I’ll be keeping.
These are the two spirit points that I will be putting into my wand. I’m doing a double-ended wand, which I wasn’t planning on, but when I found these two sitting together I knew it had to be.
They are amethyst and citrine mixed together – Sometimes called ametrine.
