Rough Minerals and Natural Stones
These gemstones and minerals have not been cut, processed, or polished. They come straight to you from Mother Earth.
All gemstones are minerals but not all minerals are gemstones.
A mineral is a naturally occurring substance with a standardized crystal atomic structure by which it can be identified. It can be made up of one or several elements; Iron, Manganese, Calcium, to name a few.
Some minerals are especially beautiful and desirable. Their crystal structure permits them to be cut and polished into attractive pieces, Kyanite, Lapis, Turquoise, Jaspers etc... and some are translucent and allow light to shimmer and refract - sparkle. These are the gemstones; Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies, Quartz, Amethyst and so on.
Use these rough minerals and gemstone pieces in your healing work or as beautiful, natural home decor. They carry the energy of the deep peace of the Earth to you.
