The Power of Raw Stalactites

We have obtained two of these powerful and rare Stalactite wands from the caves of Poona, India. Stalactites are icicle-like structures hanging from the roof of caves, formed from water dripping over limestone minerals. Limestone caves, where most stalactites are found, are composed mainly of Calcite. Beginning with just one drop of mineral-rich water, each subsequent drop forms around the initial Calcite ring to build up spectacular Stalactite columns over time. In crystal healing, Stalactites are associated with inner growth and connection to the Higher Self.

A chunk of Petrified Wood

When a tree is buried in mud, sand, gravel or volcanic ash quickly and deeply as a result of a floor, volcanic eruption or other catastrophic event, it will fossilize. This process is called petrification, in which organic material in the tree is replaced my minerals. Petrified Wood is found worldwide and can help scientists determine the environment of the past because the petrification process can protect the original composition of the wood with complete detail.
