VLOG: Tombstone 🤠 Mining ⛏️ Tour + 🌵 Shopping | Chrysocolla and Turquoise

From time to time I like to share some of our mining-related side trips with you.


I know not everyone is so into this stuff but my last one seemed to get a lot of comments so — even though this is SUPER-late (this was one of the side trips Frankie and I did during our last 2019 Tucson trip and it’s almost time to head out to AZ again!)… I FINALLY had the time and desire to sit down and edit the video over my recent sabbatical.

It’s a fun little hobby of mine (editing videos) but I’m certainly no Casey Neistat. 😉


We love to do an offshoot side trip while out in Arizona for the annual gem show and take full advantage of our time there. Arizona is so interesting to me with all its open desert landscapes and ABUNDANT natural mineral resources.

We’ve hit Tombstone a few times now (we absolutely LOVE the place!!) but each time we go, we get to see, learn, and […]

Even More Crystal Fakes

Even More Crystal Fakes

Informing, you — our Crystal Family, on this topic of crystal fakes and misrepresentations has been a passion of mine for some time now and I’m HONORED to be given the opportunity and privilege to serve in this way.

My goal here is to educate our community on what mineral fakes are currently making their rounds so we can all make intelligent buying decisions.

Keep this in mind: Always use your common sense. The best protection from crystal fakes is to be well-informed yourself.

And if you feel passionate about this topic too, please share this post in any way you prefer. (***There are some handy “SHARE” buttons you can use at the bottom of this post***).

Let’s dig in!


I’ve seen Pruskite along with a number of other lab-grown crystals (usually at gem shows) and they’re normally labeled as being lab-grown.


No problemo.

pruskite These are all lab-grown crystals on display at a recent gem show I was at. The circled dark red crystals sitting on top of yellow “matrix” are Pruskite.

However — recently I’ve had a number of my students ask me about […]

Golden Alchemy + Sacred Geometry

Today I’d like to try to connect the cosmic-dots between our heart chakra, the sacred geometry inherent in crystals and one very special element; gold.


Love this quote from one of my favorite books:

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Ready to dance?

Let me prepare you for one of my rabbit-hole sort of cosmic-journey blog posts, where I love to dive into the sacred geometry of crystals and get all tangled up in its Cosmic Connection. Want to come along with me?

HEADS UP: At first this blog post may bring you scary chemistry class flashbacks. But stick with me here. Pretty sure you’ll be glad you did!

I NEVER miss the opportunity to sneak in a good Breaking Bad reference wherever I can!
