Since I live and own property here in the Quartz Crystal Capital of the World, and am a part of the crystal industry, as such, I have access to nearly ALL of the crystals that are here.
I, too, own a crystal mine, (plus, there are several places on the property that show good signs of crystals being there.) It is a very small one at the base of my driveway which I choose to keep inoperative for many reasons. The main one is that I feel that 'Our Mother', the Earth, has already opened up her womb to us for crystals in so many other places, that there is no need for me to make yet another big hole.
There are certain crystals that are way too large, fragile and/or beautiful to be taken from show to show, and risk getting damaged. The purpose of this website is so that you may have a chance to see some of these wonderful creations from Our Mother Spirit, and decide if they are any of the ones who need to be with you.
I am privvy to many warehouses and collections that most of you never get to see. I feel as though I am both very lucky and priveleged to have been given this wonderful opportunity, not only to see and be able to handle such wonderful crystals, but also, to be able to help them find their homes.
If you do not see what you want, chances are that I can find it for you. Size and price are no object. Arkansas has some of the most amazing quartz formations in the entire world! Just email me with your Special Order.
Let me tell you right now, that it is NOT about me making lots and lots of money. I am going to eat, whether or not you buy anything from me. It is, and always has been, about the crystals being happy and finding their homes. Along with everyone along the crystal's journey being happy, too.
When I dig, I start off by saying or singing a prayer to the Mother Spirit, that she open her womb and provide me with beautiful crystals; and for Father Sun to shine his light on them, so that I may see them. And, for me, and any others who may be with me, to be safe from harm or injury, as mining is extremely dangerous. Then, after I am done, I give Thanks.
Some days I get some crystals and other days I do not. That's mining for you. Any miner can tell you it is a dice throw at best when mining. The Mother only put them where she put them, and sometimes that place is not where I am digging. :(
I also ask the Spirits to guide me to choose the right crystals. That is, the ones that want to go out into the world, when I am purchasing and/or picking the ones to go to the shows or to be on the website. Amen.
So what this all boils down to is that I like what I do and my heart is in it. If you do not see what you are looking for here on this website, please, feel free to email me with a special request and I will peruse my places and do my best to come up with what you are wanting. Size and price are no object, if it's there for you, I'll find it! In many cases, especially for domestic addresses, I would prefer to be able to 'personally' deliver specimens, rather than trusting to strangers with such wonderful specimens.
Please send me as complete a description of what you are searching for as
you can and I will get back to you with several candidates for your pleasure.
