More Crystal Fakes!

I’m so grateful to my Certified Crystal Practitioner students who bring this stuff to my attention. (That’s usually how I keep my finger on the pulse of this crystal fakes stuff.)

Sometimes I see some questionable things at a gem show… but these days, it’s usually a student pointing out something suspicious in our private community.

One thing that’s evident is that, unfortunately, the artificial mineral/gemstone market is on the rise.

Several years ago I noted that there seemed to be a bit of an info-gap in our crystal community on some good, solid, easy-to-understand data regarding this sort of thing.

Informing our community on this topic has become yet another passion of mine. Being a former science department head, having studied geology at the Masters level + being a crystal author and the founder of a Crystal Practictioner Academy with a relatively large following gives me a good reason + platform to educate about crystal fakes. Right?

So, I feel it’s my duty — and I’m honored to be given the opportunity and privilege to serve in this way.

My goal is to educate our crystal community on […]

Moonstone Healing Properties, Correspondences and Meanings

Moonstone is a favorite and very popular crystal. It’s one that many of us are attracted to for its trademark blue flash.  Everybody loves that inner sparkle right?  Today, we’re going to talk all about moonstone’s healing properties, correspondences, and meanings.


Although Rainbow Moonstone is so gorgeous with that flash, it’s certainly not the only type of moonstone. AND, it’s technically NOT moonstone as it’s commonly referred to it in the trade. We’ll get to that in a bit here.

While it might be the first one that comes to mind because we are most familiar with seeing the rainbow variation in jewelry, there are many different kinds of moonstone and it can get a little confusing… But no worries because as always, I’ve got your back!! We will geek-out on the geology below.

So, first, let’s talk about moonstone’s metaphysical properties.

Moonstone Properties + Correspondences

Moonstone is all about:

  • Lunar Energy
  • Water Connection
  • Goddess Energy
  • Divine Feminine Energy
  • Intuition

It’s ideal for allowing you to tap into your intuition more efficiently.

Moonstone, as the name implies, helps you tap into lunar energy and feminine qualities as the crystal […]

Lab-Created vs. Natural Crystals | Are Manmade Gemstones all that Bad?

manmade crystals


What’s the difference if we work with manmade crystals or all-natural ones?

Although I can tell you what I prefer, I’d like to inform you of what the facts are, then empower you to experiment for yourself and then make your own decision. But be forewarned: this is an opinion piece because I often get asked what I think on this subject.

So, let’s start with the very definition of a crystal is (then we’ll get more into the manmade crystals):

a solid substance whose molecules are arranged in a highly ordered repeating pattern.

I’ll take that definition further to say that there are very specific vibrations that hold the molecules in that highly ordered pattern —

OR is it that the highly-ordered pattern is essentially “radiating” these very specific vibrations? Hmmm? 🤔 Chicken or the egg paradox there. 

Cymatics Rabbithole

Either way,  we can prove those very specific vibrations do indeed exist… for at least certain circumstances… because we can measure their frequencies.

Ever heard of the science of Cymatics? Rather than try to verbally explain this I think it’s always best to just best […]
