Chain length: 16" (40.6cm), 18" (45.5cm), 24" (61cm) or 30" (76cm). 24" length sits on the chest (so your crystal sits on your heart). Perfect to wear as is or layered. Our 16" and 24" chains are curb chains. Our 18" and 30" chains are ball chains.
Pendant size: due to the natural state of our crystals, every pendant has a unique size, shape and colour. Our pendants range anywhere around 3.5cm and 5cm long.
Care: while crystals are not fragile, we recommend looking after your crystals and handle with care. To get the most of your crystal, we recommend 'charging' and 'cleansing' them in the sun, once per week. All of our crystals are natural, without the use of dyes and gamma-irradiation (heat to induce colour).
All natural crystals possess an amazing energy of natural healing and protection. We recommend having a crystal on you at all times, in your living space, your work space and even under your pillow, while you sleep.

There is no factory, they simply work from their homes. We're primarily focusing on empowering these amazing people. Unlike here, every cent makes a huge difference to their lives.
