22 November 22: We didn't die yet, so we must be getting stronger - and able to move 'mountains' of crystals for you for the holidays...Get the Big Twins and Twins cluster [# W08-09] to cozy up to!

17 November 22: *Notice* We have been attending to a family tragedy and are back now, later than we had expected but sick to our stomachs...so no new updates this week, but rest assured your orders are bring filled as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience!

If something makes your heart sing, that tells you youíre headed toward your True North. # 0240, the Sacandaga Brooch is a prime choice!

01 November 22: Courtesy Judith Ryan, Astrologer -Itís an extremely emotional time starting 10 days and until all Solar and Lunar eclipses. Emotions run rampant for just about everyone. So donít follow the herd. This is NOT the time for irrational confrontations or to making your demands known. You can lose out big time, if you do.

Whatever your normal pattern is, stick with it. No, you donít have to become neurotic, but donít stray from your usual way of doing things. A good example is: you drive to work a certain way every day. Itís prior to an eclipse and you decide to go another route. You get a flat tire. Your cell phone doesnít work, so you canít call for help. To top it off, cars splash mud all over you. The eclipse has struck! You strayed from the normal.

Letís say you take the normal way and you still get a flat tire. However, a limo pulls over, the driver gets out, fixes your tire, and the occupant in the car offers you an executive position in his company. You stayed with the normal and got a blessing.

So if you buy lottery tickets every day at the corner grocery store, donít stop buying them. You could be a big winner. However, donít fly off to Vegas because you feel lucky.

Good things can and do occur surrounding eclipses. The key is though, you canít go out and seek them. Follow your regular path.

Lunar Eclipse November 8 2022 16 Taurus 1į 6:02 am US Eastern Time We are here to send your 'regular' orders.

20 September 22: We do, of course, read other peoples' ads. And we marvel at how they get soupily descriptive when there are fewer and more accurate trade sizing demarcations. A crystal or cluster is called: Thumbnail to +/- 1-1/4"; Miniature to +/- 2-1/2"; Small Cabinet to +/- 3"; Cabinet +/- 4"; Large Cabinet 4" +. Now you know.

Perfectly balanced by 25mm antique Soochow jade beads and copal, yellow jade and Botswana agate beads, the WOW necklace features a slightly and alluringly curved tabular Arkansas rock crystal of SEVEN [7] inches - Large Cabinet sized - the yet nearly weightless when worn. Highly protective, and one of kind. Order # 01A57.

19 July 22: Montgomery Crystal Co is so named as this is the county in Arkansas where the most forthright rock crystals and clusters on the planet are found - best natural formations, best energy. We've always been surprised that no one took the name before we did 32 years ago.

And our tagline "Each One The Only One" tm reminds you that while crystals may look similar, as you do in a group of other people, each one is very different. We are ever conscious of this when we pair points for earrings for you!

Of course, the green chlorite cluster shown below is matchless - a showpiece a little too big to wear, but valuable 'jewelry' for your place. G06-1910.

5 July 22: Feel good/look even better with our selection of handmade, jewelled barrettes! Need more than one of a style? We're happy to oblige! Order from this page of the store: https://www.montgomerycrystalco.com/rocrrebymocr.html

26 June 22: It's great to have some weather good enough to be outside!

Choose from the page - https://www.montgomerycrystalco.com/clrocrcl.html

21 June 22: June solstice marks the longest day north of the equator and the shortest day in the south. Today, 21June! Since the Northern Hemisphere is tilted toward the Sun in June, it receives more sunlight during the course of a day. The North Pole's tilt toward the Sun is greatest at the solstice, so this event marks the longest day of the year north of the equator.

This effect is greatest in locations that are farther away from the equator. In tropical areas, the longest day is just a little longer than 12 hours; in the temperate zone, it is significantly longer; and places within the Arctic Circle experience Midnight Sun or polar day, when the Sun does not set at night.

14 June 22: In case you're new here - or if you've forgotten - the members of your orders will choose a 'travelling companion' to bring with them to you [our gift]. This may delay shipping a bit as they know whom they want to bring, but we are sometimes a little slow on the uptake.

Note that if you are sending a gift directly from here, the 'companion' will come to you, for you. Fun for us, extra value for you!

7 June 22: Are you having fun yet? Pin on our 'Smile Bar' - and only one of you can, unless you lend it - and soak up good humor. Smiles are the very best kind of contagious! [#0232]

31 May 22: Get Dressed! Or just show up in our Bimini Clips. Knock their socks off.

BIMINI CLIPS - Earrings of Matched, Wirewrapped Natural Arkansas Rock Crystals, Ammonites, Copal, Tiger's Eye, Horn, Pyrite by Montgomery Crystal Co, #22A51.

24 May 22: We are still regrouping after having had a computer with no backup crash, the total loss of SEVEN years of work and records, our phone line severed, and our owner landing with a trifecta of injuries.

So it's almost fortuitous that Mercury's retrograde now [more or less direct June 3], to go back to go forward.

We highly recommend that you, too, get a lavender rose quartz rough to help you balance and chart your own next moves when the skies clear.

17 May 22: It's finally springy out. Time to box up the turtlenecks and show your own neck. Grace it with our red-iron included Arkansas rock crystal and red aventurine choker, your new favorite. 01A20 is its' style number.

5 April 22: We are reading [on pinterest] so many of the most most far-fetched things about rock crystals and their care, that we are just nauseated. Yes! there are perfectly clear crystals NOT grown with a grey core - and what location has those if they exist? And NO! salt won't scratch crystals - unless perhaps you're using a dry soft stone such as turquoise to grind rock salt.

If this is popular 'culture', we strongly suggest you pick up our book, 'The Buyer's Guide', and other mineralogical texts so you can learn better.

29 March 22: You have to be good to yourself. In respecting pauses given to you, you'll be able to see how to incorporate and be even more brilliant for the changes presented to you.

Some crystals given a halt in their growth have other minerals deposit on them, yet when the conditions are right for them they continue crystallization and show off phantoms of record. Take their example and study carefully. The Arkansas blue phantom cluster B07-795 shown below is an excellent desk reference for you to have at your side.

22 March 22: That the word 'rare' has been used lately for just about everything but. Sizing, too, has gone to fantasyland. There are long accepted terms in common usage you should learn to make it easier for you to be able to compare and choose the rock crystals [and other minerals] you want to add to your projects and collections.

So the choice TN - thumbnail sized cluster featured this week outdoes its' size. A floater with a superb, truly RARE reverse scepter, you'll want to get it for your collection posthaste!

15 March 22: A handful, pre-spring, of a powerful Arkansas quantum cluster! Confident, clear energy, included green chlorite AND multicolor rare irises snap you into the new season! 16h-GDT4-231105

Yours will be as beautiful. If you'd prefer the night-blue of iolite with peacock pearls and goldfill instead of aquamarine and silvery ones, please specify on your order.

22 February 22: in these days struggling between still-winter and not-yet-spring, Arkansas golden healers can help you buck up with their glowing energy. We are fond of the generous and stately large cabinet cluster [G06-13448] shown below, and you will be, too.

05 November 21: What's really nice, and initially not even realized, is that each of our Illuminator tm bookmarks is also an accurate pendulum. So not only have your gift-giving options doubled, these satisfy by being lovely and precious in the hand. And hand washable, too.

26 October 21: The season's changing, and everyone needs a pause. Even rock crystals pause, as clearly shown by #18i-BT2-7102 shown below, with its' two distinct blue phantoms [shale] under its' 8h faced [very rare] uncommon chisel tip.

Acquire this point and see your own pause reflect a tune-up.

19 October 21: This is from "The Brother Gardeners" by Andrea Wulf. You might not suspect that plants have much to do with rock crystals, but this sure has a parallel to today's market with ridiculous cutesy names and ridiculous prices for substandard specimens:

""However, there was one problem: the naming of these new plants was causing much confusion, since gardeners and nurserymen were naming them at will. .... For garden owners the confusion meant that cultivatiom advice could be wrong and that the same plant could be ordered twice under different names. ....

The problem was not entirely new. Already in 1629 [1629!!!] John Parkinson, in his bestselling plant catalogue Paradisi in Sole: Paradisus Terrestris, declared that "scarce one of our Nurserie men doe sell the right, but give one for another". .... More than sixty years later, Samuel Gilbert, another horticultural writer, remained frustrated by "the Mercenary Flower Catchers" who pretended to sell new exotics but only invented names for "old Flowers TO ENHANCE THEIR PRICE. " " [caps mine]

A common, vetted language does exist for rock crystals including grading info. So, buyer be aware and order it below! "The Buyer's Guide", # BG.

21 July 21: every so often a pause is encountered. During this time, other minerals may cozy up and then become inclusions, occlusions*, or phantoms as the quartz encloses them and continues to grow.

In Arkansas, rock crystals may exhibit: red clay, red iron, sand, black manganese, shale, white chlorite, beige chlorite, green chlorite, white titanium and combinations.

And then, they even accommodate you.

*the 'added' mineral continues on the outside of the crystal[s].

13 July 21: When a natural rock crystal is damaged underground [natural damage] or in mining [man made], it starts its' own repair and 'healing' atom by atom. We don't live long enough to see the finish, but know its' orientation isn't diminished. Even if its' lost its' faces it knows [and we can see] which end is up - an energy marvel.

You simply cannot expect this animation when you're buying material cut up to look like a point. It might be 'pretty'. Every part of it is in repair. Can you tell which end is up? Even our gem beads have an 'up'.

6 July 21: EVERY rock crystal, EVERY quartz cluster, indeed EVERY rough has been hand held and asked if it's coming with us to find YOU. EVERY one has been driven back with us. +/-1400 miles from Arkansas to the offices here. EVERY one has had a salt bath, and been washed with a soft toothbrush and lavender soap..if needed, acid baths/baking soda/ammonia, lavender soap.

EVERY rock crystal, EVERY quartz cluster, EVERY rough is asked if it wishes to come to work with you naked or combined into our other offerings. It's they who choose the gem beads and other materials for YOU! We can only suggest...

29 June 21: is there a method to your collecting madness? Do you have a predilection for a set of one of each type of main face? Crystals with extra faces? Twins? Just clusters? If you don't see onsite, you can call or email us your particulars.

10 November 20: published to great acclaim in 1753 Linnaeus's "Species Naturae" listed not only a comprehensive list of plants, but a solution for NAMING them. Because old systems gave names 'a foot long' and widely unwieldy AND wrong in many cases.

Simplification was genius.

This applies to rock crystals, too, and "The Buyer's Guide" cuts away the confusion from today's fanciful, meaningless AND wrong terms.

Order yours. We don't care what personal names you may give them after you've gotten them home.

27 October 20: every one of us can use a little extra light and lightheartedness right about now! Spark some with our collection of crystal clips - Highlight [B09] is shown.

21 October 20: the elements of earth do not tolerate impiety: do not confuse the way that crystals LOOK with the way that they ARE.

For energy work and helping to clarify, it's not the blasted-out/cut up Brazils, Chinese, or fakely colored stones which have lost their orientation. It's the naturals, whatever quality, every time. #S03-1934, Natural Smoky, RARE to Arkansas shown.

14 October 20: we don't know about you - you almost never write - but between mars and mercury currently being retrograde, we've just gotten 1. a new computer, which JUST like the old one, thinks it's 2014... 2. the camera put its' little lens up in the air... 3. i turned around too fast and went down, concussed, like the proverbial box of.

22 September 20: ok, some things can be done mechanically - like our store being back online, finally! But some things cannot - there can be up to a THOUSAND natural crystals to a pound. We meticulously grade, size and match, starting with the main faces for each earring pair. If the points are to be capped, grinding needs to be done judiciously so heights match. We do not cap stones with signs of regrowth. If other stones are to join the style, the crystals must agree which, down to the last bead, so that what may look simple to you has the harmony to help you and show you off, too. # 22A03

Easy to do with pre-cut stones - naturally, stronger energy for you with whole, natural stones.

12 August 20: you'll find that many times you will purchase quartz clusters because there's something familiar besides their strength and energy - a recognizable shape, perhaps.

06 August 20: Once upon a time, this antique 1x 2-1/2" moulded glass vial held wafers produced by the Upjohn Company.

October 24/18: Arkansas rock crystals regardless of looks deliver the strongest, cleanest energy over any other sort. To select, sort, and grade, to organize your own collection get my book and learn how. The visuals are priceless and portable.

October 18/18: Natural Arkansas rock crystals and clusters are known for their exceptional clear and strong energy - the best. Shown is a large cabinet 'butterfly' with substantial, radiating force in the nicest way. Self-displays safely in several positions.

October 11/18: Each rock crystal, quartz cluster and gem rough chooses to come with us from Arkansas to find you.

A perennial favorite is our Lucky Bar H pin with a rare needle Arkansas rock crystal perched on the shamrock charm. Corral and focus your forces - and Western is so hot right now!

September 27/18: An outstanding, perhaps unexpected, pronounced rare faden veil inside of top quality ARKANSAS tabular crystals in parallel growth. Rainbows may tempt you to negotiate, meditate, ruminate with a lightness of spirit.

September 20/18: Natural rock crystals draw energy through and along themselves, clarify and amplify it. They do not have to be clear to do this: all veiled, milky, chipped, rough, and damaged crystals do this, too. When you specifically ask your crystal [and/or crystals, cluster[s], rough stone[s]] to help and work with you, consider the wiser, stronger and most experienced Arkansas quartz - they have the purest no-nonsense way with a dash of humor.

September 12/18: You need to ditch your expectations and go for the real. Cut to look 'real', crystals boiled alive to sear pretty and pretty toxic colors to them, swarovski glass aren't real. They can't and won't help out. Be true to yourselves and get the real thing.
