About

Beautiful quartz crystals and minerals

My passions, and my favorite stones, are quartz crystals. No two quartz crystal are alike, the possibilities and variations are endless.

I try finding beautiful and unusual crystal and minerals, which I would like to add to my own collection. My art, or my craft is that all minerals, especially the quartz crystals, I sell, I chose individually, often among hundreds (literally) of crystals.

I know from experience, that when buying a crystal it is important for me to look at it, pick it up and feel it. Often I put it down again, to browse everything else, but later revisit it, before I might buy anything. My favorite way of selling crystals is in personal interaction, where people can come to my booth or table, and physically look at the stones. It is hard to pick a crystal on a computer or phone screen.

With the advances of digital technology and photography, but especially video, it becomes easier every day to capture images and post them in a snap. By the same token, digital photography also has its drawbacks, because the camera mercilessly focuses on what it sees, and especially in the macro setting any flaw or ding looks like a gigantic crater. When you look at a crystal with your own eyes, you see all of it in its entirety. Combined with the light and the environment you're in, your eyes may not focus on the minute flaws but on the magnificence of the entire crystal. It is my hope, that the crystal itself may look much better once you hold it in your hand than any photo ever would.

Please look at the pictures carefully. It may be challenging to choose a mineral without handling it in person just based on a few photos. I post more and more videos at my Instagram account @pohakugalore, because video shows the crystals much better. Etsy does not (yet) support videos, so please send me a convo and I post it on Insta.

In addition, the Internet reaches people that may live in a part of the world, where they cannot just drop into a ‘crystal store’ and buy whatever they are looking for. I'm now exploring this avenue in a more systematic way to bring crystals to you, by opening this (virtual) shop.

I will be adding more things over time, and if you're looking for something specific, don't hesitate to contact me with a conversation.

    I have been collecting minerals for a long time. My passion is quartz crystals in all its forms. Quartz is most abundant on our planet and almost every place I visited does have their unique quartz crystals.

Shipping
PLEASE NOTE:

I ship USPS only. I'm happy to expand to priority mail, in case this might be a faster and more economical option to ship. This is often possible with the least expensive option (inside the USA): the priority padded envelope from USPS

I ship to the USA and Canada, the EU and most parts of Asia. The exception in the EU is France, where mail seems to have a hard time to go though customs and it might be advisable to purchase insurance when ordering from France.

If you are planning to place an international order, please send me a convo before you buy. Depending where your live, it might be advisable to add insurance to your package.

All mail sent via Etsy gets a tracking number that will be emailed to you automatically. Unfortunately this service is currently only available for the USA and Canada and 15 countries in the EU. Please keep in mind that as soon as the package is dropped off at the Post Office we are at the mercy of the Postal Service and all we can do is wait for it to get from A to B...

If you need a special shipping arrangement or carrier, I am happy to work on the best solution for you.
