Hello. I've recently ordered some of your crystals through Amazon and plan on purchasing more through this site. I especially like the small bottles you offer; very nice. My question is regarding handling of the crystals.
I plan on making small resin pendants containing little chips of several different crystals. Since the pendants will be small, I am wondering if it's okay to break the big crystals into smaller pieces, using a chisel or an awl. Is this okay to do? Will it harm the energy of the crystal to be broken like that? Some of the crystals are just too big to use in the pendants, but I want the energy and attributes of those crystals to be in the jewelry. In particular, do you think it would be okay to do this with Tiger's Eye, since it will be breaking up the striations in the stone? Do they have to be intact to get the most benefit from them?
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
Yes, you can break larger crystals into smaller crystals. Yes, the Tiger Eye will still contain enough of each element to create the right vibration. This is a common practice for many who make jewelry. The size of a crystal will not effect the vibration or properties of a crystal. So break to your hearts content.
