I guess you are wondering why there is a man-made crystal here at Altar!?
There are plenty of man-made crystals on the market and I believe it is important for customers to know the difference when making a purchasing decision. I also believe that something doesn't have to be as the earth created for it to be an inspiring addition to your sacred space. When hand picking crystals for Altar I walked back and forth past this gorgeous tower while on a sourcing appointment. I umm'ed and agh'ed and the truth is, it wouldn't let me leave without it. The patterning in this stunning tower is so easy to get lost in and I think it will find a gorgeous home. It reminds me of an atmosphere on another planet and the beauty is pretty undeniable if you ask me!
If you are asking yourself whether a man-made crystal is something you want to add to your collection, my advice is to take the same approach you would to any other item you invite into your sacred space. Does it call to you? Does it inspire you? If yes, it will be the perfect addition to your collection ♥︎
