This stone is very special and I love them. I searched almost every Cintamani list on Etsy, and Kevin's shop just emanated this overwhelming energy, calling out to me. Kevin's ardour for Cintamani is sincere and he knows his stones well! You are why I shop on Etsy. Great products and wonderful sellers! I really recommend this great, kind and helpful trusted seller!

Great crystal! Love the feeling of it connecting me deeper to my spiritual side.

I got this stone to represent fire on my altar because the unique wavy bands look like fire or smoke. One of the more interesting Saffordites I have.

Of all the Saffordites I've bought (around 20), this is the one I hold the most. There's something comforting about the symmetry, the slight depression on one side where my thumb fits, the texture that looks like leather, and the diffused glow when backlit. It's like tactile ASMR.

Super awesome customer service! Kevin answered all my questions I had. Shipping was super quick and stone was packaged really well! Then I opened the package and it was full of joy. Stone are BEAUTIFUL!! I love the transparency of the stone in the light. Cintamani stones are amazing and have the most magnificent vibrations. Very nice Cintamani as described! I am beyond in love. If you meditate with a stone, you can feel the vibration of the stone. It's a very powerful stone and high vibration! They come in little velvet pouches which are wonderful. Take it out of the package and feel it right away!! Highly highly recommend!!! Overall just very great shop and so happy with my purchase! Great experience with the shop. Thank you so much!! Many, many thank you Kevin! I'll definitely be back for me!

Loved getting these little cintamani stones. They have a very soft yet distinct energy to them. Like moldavite but not as intense. Just my opinion only. This is the second time buying from this shop and I have been very pleased with the stones.

My goal is for The Lumen Naturae to be the best source of Cintamani/Saffordites in the world. Here’s what I can offer you:
We grade our stones in the field, and again once they have been cleaned. We leave opaque and freshly chipped or broken stones on the desert floor. We offer the most beautiful, high-energy stones which have been selected for translucency, shape, and incredible surface textures.
We do not mine our stones. Each one is found sitting out on the desert floor. The fragile desert soil is disturbed only by our footprints.
Our stones are never irradiated or tachionized. They are exactly how nature provided them, perfectly charged with the energy of millions of starry nights and sunny days.
We gather our stones with humility and gratitude, and we leave offerings of food, sage, and crystals for the places we gather from. We believe that the stones have a job to do where they lay, so we never gather all the stones that we see. Each individual stone is treated with respect and gratitude, and I believe that sensitive people will notice the subtle energies of stones which have never been subjected to the violence of a mining operation.
I take time to prepare photos of the exact stone that you are purchasing, so that you can choose the stone that is right for you. These include a ruler for scale as well as photos showing what the stone looks like when backlit so you can judge its translucency and internal patterns for yourself.
If you don't want to pay a little extra for photos, consider purchasing from my bulk listing section, where stones are listed by weight and I choose the stone for you after you've purchased. This saves me the time it takes to photograph individual stones, and lets me pass the savings to you. Bulk listed stones are available from 2.5 to 5.0 grams, sorted into listings within half gram ranges (for example 2.5-3.0 grams stones).
I have sold hundreds of Cintamani stones and my handcrafted silver jewelry to people on every continent (except Antarctica) around this beautiful planet.
Our love for the desert takes us near and far through canyons, mountains and sun-beaten bajadas. The stones appeared to us as we stopped to rest along the wayside, and we've visited them many times since. They are generous teachers and we're full of gratitude for the ways they've enriched our lives. We hope they will bring you what you seek as well.
Thank you for visiting!
Crafter, Silversmith, Leatherworker and photographer, I love to travel and be immersed in the beauty of the wild Earth. I gather all the stones that I offer you here, and I do so with humility, gratitude and joy. Thanks for visiting!

Frequently asked questions
Are there any taxes or fees the customer should be aware of?
International customers may be charged fees or taxes including VAT by their own country. Every country is different, so it is difficult for me to know specifics, but the UK charges a vey high VAT which can be 70% or more of the cost of the item. This is not a shipping fee, it is a tax. If you have any questions about this, please contact me before purchasing or inquire at your local Post Office.
