New! Natural Quartz Pendants

Raw Quartz Pendants


Natural Quartz pendants bring the energy of the earth straight to your aura. Raw stones are a magnificent source of natural healing energy. Quartz grows beautiful 6 facet points and pointed clusters. Quartz ranges from crystal clear to milky white with a whole assortment of inclusions like orange Tangerine Quartz and purple Lepidocrosite Quartz. Energetically, Quartz is the master healing crystals, going to the source of dis-ease and enhancing your self-healing abilities. Quartz pendants help to amplify the aura, most specifically seen when you take a Kirlian aura photo with and without the stone.

Handcrafted Crystal Healing Wand

Question: Hi, I was wondering if you offer any courses and/or certifications on crystal healing?

I'd also like to ask if you make custom wands.  I'm looking to have a wand made with rose quartz, aquamarine, turquoise and black obsidian.



Answer: Thank you for your interest in Satin Crystals.  Although we have offered them in the past and may do so again in the future, we don't have any courses in crystal healing at the moment.

Deter Allergies with Nature


It is why we are so attracted to natural healing stones. Natural crystals come straight from nature, pulsing with life force. Bringing them into the home helps us to remember from where we thrive. 

A lack of exposure to a "natural environment" could be resulting in more urban dwellers developing allergies and asthma, research has suggested.

Finnish scientists say certain bacteria, shown to be beneficial for human health, are found in greater abundance in non-urban surroundings.

The microbiota play an important role in the development and maintenance of the immune system, they add.

Mint Chalcedony - Dyed or Undyed?


Question: Thank you so much for your reply about the Prehnite cleansing, this helps!! Yes all my stones, so far, are all tumbled! If I may ask another question, a few years ago I bought green chalcedony, it's pale blue green. They are rondelle beads. Now I am wondering if it might have any treatment such as heat or stabilization or (I) where they fuse it with plastic. All look even colored, they are murky, very beautiful stones.

Do you know if mint green chalcedony is ever stabilized or color treated? Besides taking the strand of beads to the jewelers is there some test I can perform to check for myself?

Answer: Yes, colored Chalcedony is usually dyed, especially if it is of uniform color in so many beads. There is no guarantee if the beads were dyed or not unless you bought them from a reputable company which discloses this information. Sometimes, you can look into the holes of the beads or in the surface veins and see if pools of colored dye are found in these crevices. You can also tell by the price of the stones, those that are have good, natural coloring will be more expensive than dyed beads. For those who handle gemstone jewelry constantly, they will be able to tell just by experience which items are dyed and which are natural. In essence, I can not tell you for certain if the beads are dyed, but perhaps these tips will give you some clues. Of course, you can always take it to a gemologist or those knowledgeable in gemstones to get an official conclusion.

If you have any further crystal healing questions, we are happy to answer them.

Cleaning Crystals in Water?

Cleaning Crystals in Water



Question: Hi, sorry for the bother but I watched a few of your lovely videos this a.m. and in one of them you said some gemstones cannot be submerged in water and to contact you and ask if we didn't know. I'm so sorry, I googled it and can't find it.

Can Prehnite be cleansed by submerging in water overnight? That's my most important question as I acquired some but haven't been able to work with it because I didn't know how to cleanse it. If not can it be washed in tap water with natural soap?

My other question is Rose Quartz: right now I have a batch of rose quartz in a glass container with spring water and sea salt soaking for several hours. Is it ok?

Thank you very much for your help & lovely video instructions and have a great weekend!



AnswerHi, thank you for your email and for watching our crystal healing video tutorials.

If your Prehnite stones are tumbled smooth they will be okay in water. However, if they are raw formations, you may want to cleanse them using another method like dry brown rice, dry sea salt, incense, etc. When in doubt, we like to leave crystals out of water.

Rose Quartz, along with others in the Quartz family, will do fine in water. Again, if there are any delicate points, occlusions or formations on the stones, you will want to be cautious and leave them out of water.

Running them under tap water or a natural stream of water will be sufficient. You do not need soap. If there is something physically dirty on the stones, you may want to rub them with some natural soap, but again be aware of the fragility of the stone.

If you have any further questions, feel free to email us at idigcrystals@gmail.com.

Sincerely, 


Sheila Satin

Black Bracelets for Protection


Question: hey i just got a crystal healing wand and am starting to use it on my dad's kidneys cause he has kidney stones. what other kinds of bracelets can i use to protect myself when using it? ive been using it as a pain reliever so i turn the wand counter clockwise to get rid of the pain and its been quite successful. thank you so much i love your videos. many blessings from southern california /mexico.

Answer: Hi, thank you for writing to us. We highly recommend Obsidian when doing healing work. Obsidian is a great crystal to help protect yourself from the unwanted energies of your clients. Stretch bracelets are easy to wear while working with a wand. Besides Obsidian, you may want to consider Black Tourmaline or Jet bracelets, two other great protective stones. 

For a selection of healing crystal bracelets, we welcome you to visit www.idigcrystals.com (Tourmaline and Jet bracelets are on their way up to the online shop, and if you need any custom pieces, just ask!).

Heated Crystal Healing Energy

citrine stone properties
Heated Citrine Bracelet

Question
Do gemstones lose their properties when heated, do you know?

Answer: Hi, thank you for your question. Many natural stones are heated to bring out their color or give them even coloring. Heating stones does not affect the energy properties of the crystal, unless the heat changes it from one stone to another. For example, when you heat Amethyst it turns into Citrine. Heating is also done naturally within the earth.

Sheila Satin
