Natural Rock Crystals
- Pack of 10: Double Terminated Natural Rock Crystals for Geode Art
Geodes, Geode Art and Crystals
By now we all know that a geode is a cavity in a stone that is lined with crystals or minerals. Quartz crystals are the normal crystals found in geodes.
Geode Art is inspired by natural geodes. Geodes are characterised by crystals and over-the-top natural colours, sparkle and beauty …….. geode art should be too.
As geodes contain quartz crystals it is hard to imagine geode art without any crystals. So let’s talk about quartz crystals!
Rock Crystals are also called Quartz Crystals and they are grown slowly by nature. They are natural products that vary in colour, shape and size.
Rock Crystals are relatively common (far more so that diamonds, rubies, topaz, emeralds etc). This makes them affordable for use in art and no better place to use them than in Geode Art.
Some types of Quartz Crystals you probably know about are Amethyst (purple), Citrine (yellow) and Rose Quartz (pink) but there are many other colours including Blue Quartz, Prasiolite (green) and others.
The crystals we sell here are not pure colours but usually show a range of colour. They are all partly translucent which is important as translucent crystals create a better effect. To assist our customers we divide them into three colour groups as the names indicate. You may be able to buy large pure Amethyst or Citrine crystals but they will cost you a lot more and are more commonly used in jewellery than art.
Our crystals are doubly terminated which means they grew from both ends and both ends have a pyramid shaped termination. We sell packs of 10 crystals because we thought 10 to be a nice number for a geode art centre piece.
