Um...

Here it is. After a 7 1/2 week wait. It was smaller than expected but nice. Tibetan Black Quartz is usually pretty beat up so chips in the terminations, cracks and dings are always expected. I personally love them they are perfect with their imperfections. I have a nice little batch of these to list in my shop but I wanted to see what the competition had to offer. It's always a little daunting when offering crystals that are battered in their natural state. Here is a peek at what I got and a mini review. (I will not name the shop) It came in a box full of dried flowers and crushed sage.
It's a pretty presentation...BUT.. there is glitter AND perfume. Perfume, not essential oil :( The box reeks of it, my poor crystal had to soak in dawn dish soap overnight. There was a couple of incense cones and a mini sage bundle and a couple of extra little crystals. Even the sage was drowned out by the perfume, I didn't think that was possible. So while it's a pretty presentation I don't like plastic glitter for environmental reasons and synthetic fragrance gives me a migraine. Here is the crystal. Pretty right?
And here again (On the right) with the ones that will eventually be listed in the shop.
