Crystals. Crystals is a huge field in and of itself. As I was contemplating
doing this talk about crystals I remembered a couple of personal stories I
have myself with crystals.
Now, Herkimer diamond. Not actually a diamond at all. I think this is my
piece of Herkimer. I'm not actually sure this is one of mine.
Herkimer diamond, it is supposed to facilitate psychic abilities. It's only
found in Herkimer which is a small town upstate New York. My personal
experience, does this expand one's psychic energies? Oh, yes it does. Oh,

A lot of people use quartz as jewelry to bring into alignment their various
chakras. The one that most people know is pink quartz for love. This
beautiful little one is actually in the shape of a heart. Does it improve
one's love life? I don't know. But perhaps it does so, why not?
Certainly on the desk that I use for my reading I have a variety of
