Due to the coronavirus, the Healing Crystals pick-n-pack warehouse is temporarily closed and we are not accepting orders.
We shall post an update when we are able to reopen.
"Hello, I was wondering if it is okay to break crystals into smaller bits like the Blue Apatite Crystal Chips and Chunks? From what I hear it's really bad, but I wanted to make sure. Thanks a lot."
It is not bad, it is not good, it just is what it is :)
For me, it would first depend on the crystal, if it was a complete crystal or damaged, etc. Second, it depends on your intent.
The chips you see crystal shops offering are basically what is left in the bottom of the container once the crystals have been shipped. The seller does not intentionally break up crystals in order to sell them as chips, chunks, etc. — at least, not that I am aware of :)
I think you should leave it up to the crystal :)
For instance, I do some lapidary work — slicing and polishing crystals, repairing dings and dents, cutting into shapes, etc. I always ask before I begin if the crystal is in agreement with what I want to do. Then I "listen". It can come as butterflies in my stomach (which normally means, "No thank you") or a tingle while I am holding the crystal (which for me means, "Yes, let's give it a go"). Sometimes, no matter how hard I try, the crystal will not slice, so I take that as a "no" too :)
Then again, I have taken a hammer (gently of course) to a piece I thought was fake just to see what was inside. Did I feel bad for doing it? No, not at all.
I think what you need to ask yourself is, "Is your intent for wanting to break the crystal in your highest good (and the crystals')? Do you have a specific purpose in mind for wanting to use the crystal pieces as opposed to the complete crystal? How do YOU feel about the act of breaking the crystal?"
Once you answer these questions, do what feels right for you.
With love and crystal blessings

|Thank you, So much..... you give me more security to brake it down and share with my kids and sister. I truly appreciate it (Submitted by: Ladyluck on June 02, 2019)|
| Awesome response! I have a smokey chink that I picked up at a garage sale a few years back that has been cleaned but my sister is just now getting in to meditation and energy and is an amazing empath and is able to hone her abilities way better than I. Ilove my cluster but want to share it with her and since it is a good intention, I feel more secure splitting it now.|
Thanks! (Submitted by: jodella on October 01, 2017)
| I am a witch and I do a bit of crystal smashing for my garden magik, which are terrarium gardens. The purpose of this is to heighten their energy, with the crystals permission of course... Things like making an amethyst water fall for flowing healing energy can be very magikal in itself, but combined with plants and other whole crystals and a blessing on my gardens is a great spell for whatever the buyers desire to inspire, heal and bring peace to certain situations in their life.|
I hope this helps...
Blessed be xXx (Submitted by: Claire on June 07, 2017)
