1. What is Blue Tara: a rare blue included Quartz

When I first got into crystals (in the late 80’s) I bought a bunch of this material – then I didn’t see it for decades – now it’s back (maybe with new finds) and I’m glad to say I’ve got a good cross-section of pretty specimens and more gnarly, but energetically potent pieces. The wispy blue that runs through it is Riebeckite, and it doesn’t grow in straight lines, like Rutile. So what you see are like dreamy clouds. In any case, it’s like a cross between a blue Healing stone and a Visionary stone of the Imagination. Most our stock is OFFline, so it’s best to email Kyle@CrystalConcentrics.com with interest.

3. Real vs Fake: Statements vs Certificates of Authenticity

Just cause someone includes a little piece of paper saying your item’s real doesn’t necessarily make it so. People don’t understand that to get a proper Gemologist’s Certification can cost two hundred dollars plus, per item. That’s not what you’re getting when sellers promise you a certificate. What I do instead – though I do have a plan if you wanna get something super official – is to provide you a Statement of Authenticity, as part of the info card I mail out with your purchase. It’s based on my 3 decade’s experience. I stand behind my descriptions. If I say something’s something, it probably is that thing.

4. Resources: store, articles, blog, podcast, book…
