Crystal Tips: Dyed Crystals

Dyed CrystalThe first time I bought Amethyst, it was in a beautiful necklace I found in a store in Spain. After having it for years, I was shocked when I looked closely and found similar characteristics I found in dyed Crystals. Oftentimes, Crystals that have lost their color or that just don’t have enough vibrancy compared to the vivid colors we might be used to, are dyed. How can you differentiate a natural color Crystal from one that is dyed?

These are some important pointers:

  • Agate: this is one of the Crystals known for being dyed in beautiful colors to enhance the marvelous design and patterns it has. So if you see bright purple, pink, blue or other colored Agate, know that it is not natural but dyed.
  • Cracks and veins: for a Crystal to retain the dye, it is necessary for it to be porous or have fractures that can hold the dye. Like in the case of my Amethyst necklace, the cracks and fractures in the Crystal will appear as veins of highly pronounced color whereas the rest of the Crystal will appear more pale.
  • Quality: this store in Madrid where I bought the Amethyst necklace was a cheap store. Buying your Crystals from reputable sources, especially when you are new to Crystals, will save you more than one surprise!
  • Turquoise: As mentioned in our imitation Crystals video, Turquoise is an expensive Crystal compared to others. Because of this, you might often find it to be an imitation, such as dyed Howlite. You can recognize it because imitation Turquoise is normally dyed in an intensely bright color well beyond the tonality of an authentic one.

The more you connect with and work with Crystals, the easier it will become to notice those difference and recognize a a natural color from a dyed one.

Crystals in American History

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of meeting Jim Wickard at the Tuscon Gem Show, an incredible artist working in bronze sculpture and natural crystals.

He shared the fascinating history of how the US government purchased massive quantities of high grade, natural, optical quartz, to manufacture the two way radio transmitters for use during the war.  See below the public information video produced by Reeves Sound Laboratories in 1943 detailing how optical quartz was being used in the manufacture of radios during World War II.

A few years after the war, in the early 1950’s the process of artificially producing optical quartz through hydrothermal synthesis made it faster and more economical to produce the quartz piezoelectric oscillator chips needed and so the government sold its surplus optical quartz via public auctions. 

Jim Wickard purchased a large quantity that he was been slowly incorporating into his amazing art.  He was generous enough to give me the opportunity to purchase a couple of amazing natural, optical Citrines!  What amazing crystals!

As you may know, Citrine is a variety of quartz with a distinctive yellow color caused by iron based impurities.  Most Citrines available for mainstream purchase are actually treated amethyst crystals.  The “optical” grade classification means that they are free of inclusions and structural defects and are of such high clarity that it is ideal for use in optics and electronics where tolerances are very tight.

What an honor to have these very rare and special beauties join our Crystal Healer family of healing crystals!

This Easter Weekend… Yoni Eggs!

Easter Weekend... Yoni Eggs!Did you know that Crystals have been used in Asia for sexual healing since early times in history? Authentic crystal yoni eggs and ben wa balls are Crystals carved in an egg or ball shape that can help treat a series of conditions for which doctors would prescribe similar items made of metal – not the same than the healing energy of a beautiful crystal, as you can imagine!

Easter is a perfect time to start working with Yoni Eggs. Why? Read along…

Ishtar (previously known as Inanna) is the Goddess of Love, Beauty, Sex and Fertility. You might be more familiar with her Greek equivalent (Aphrodite), Roman equivalent (Venus) or Hinduism equivalent (Durga).

“The Two Babylons” a pamphlet by Alexander Hislop, explores the idea of Ishtar having evolved into Easter, due to the similarity from a phonetic perspective between both words.

It is said that Ishtar’s symbols included the egg and the bunny representing fertility and sexuality. Whether it is Ishtar or Easter (or both) that you celebrate, this is a time of celebrating new life, whether resurrection or fertility.

With that in mind, what better time to gift yourself or another an authentic Crystal Yoni Egg? Learn how Yoni Eggs made of healing crystals can help you healing sexuality and more!
