Fakes, Fakes + More Crystal Fakes

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’s level + being a crystal author and the founder of a Crystal Practitioner 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 … Read More

manmade crystals


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

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 … Read More
