Welcome to Chrissy's Personal Crystalpedia!
This page is here to guide you in identifying the raw minerals, crystals, and other materials Chrissy works with most frequently. This is accumulation of decades of studying geology in college, reading extensively on, and personally working with various crystals. Think of these as class notes. With an overwhelming amount of information out there and not know who to trust, this is a bare bones, simple, and trustworthy gathering of data as well as photos taken by Chrissy of her actual crystals and jewelry making supplies.
On the back of the card your piece came on, the materials used are marked off, and using a QR Scanning app on your smartphone is probably how you got here.
Something truly amazing is happening right now, and that is Science is finally starting to catch up more and more with many metaphysical beliefs and practices that have been around for thousands of years. Many of us simply know it works and now we're getting science to back it up.
The piezoelectric effect demonstrates quartz crystals actually CAN and DO convert electrical energy to mechanical energy. This is the core of the science of Quartz watches.
