Subject: Does a Bigger Crystal Mean a "Stronger" Crystal?

Hi there.

My massage therapist turned me on to a healing center that does crystal work — it is something I've been looking for direction in employing to heal myself for years, and I guess today the universe has answered.SoIi found your website looking for somewhere to purchase some stones they said to start with. I want to make sure that your offerings of healing stones in their untumbled, natural state are all non-irradiated — I was horrified to learn about this practice. I also wanted to ask you if the size of a stone affects its like strength, like if a 3-inch stone is "stronger" in its resonance or affect than a 1/2- or 1-inch stone. Thanks for further info. I only had a brief conversation with the healing center's director, who was nice enough to give me a few places to start until I am able to speak with them long distance and more in depth.





Good Morning Mitra,

We carry a large collection of natural stones as well as some lab-enhanced pieces (such as the Aura Quartz). If the product has been heat treated or lab-enhanced, we do state this clearly in the product description. Of course, if there are any questions or you are unsure, please do not hesitate to email and ask.

One of the most common questions for beginners is, "Does size really matter?".
I personally believe that size does not matter at all. I feel that the energy contained within the crystal is consistent, no matter if it is a 1" tumbled or a 3" polished hand holder. The "container" is bigger, that's all :)

Think of a cup of water. You can pour a cup of water into a pint container which will almost completely fill up the space. You can pour a cup of water into a quart container. The same amount of liquid in each container. The energy of the liquid simply expands (not increases) to fit the container.

Others will tell you that size does matter. That the larger the crystal, the more powerful and potent it will be. Still others may say it depends :) The best advice I can give you is that each person and their crystal experiences are unique unto themselves. No two experiences are alike. No one is "wrong" and everyone is "right". :)

As you work with the stones and crystals, you will find your unique voice too. Enjoy the journey!

With love and crystal blessings,
