This year's Gem & Mineral Show featured
collector interest and dealers in "healing crystals,"
particularly Lemurian quartz crystals.
These natural crystals are found individually
(not in mines with traditional quartz)
and are believed by many to have
emotional and spiritual properties,
which when carried or worn,
soothe, nurture and heal.
I'm interested enough in these beautiful stones
to do more reading and research.
In the meantime, I am most impressed
with collector and owner enthusiasm for
Lemurian Quartz Crystals.
(Why not, I say.)
