I often get asked where do I get my crystals from, or how to get started with collecting them. I go by what I am attracted to, what draws me to the crystal. Then once I have the crystal I look up its property and what is special about that particular crystal. I use the Crystal encyclopedia by Judy Hall that has a hundred of crystal organized by color. So even if you don't know the name of the crystal you can just look in that color category to find it.
Where do I get my crystals?
There are so many different crystal companies out there, but I can give you a list of some that I have worked with and can vouch for quality.
