As we collect our museum quality quartz & pyrite specimens, or amethyst scepter plates, we find zillions of single quartz points and small plates. We have always sold them by the 200 lb. drum. Now we´re offering them in small quantities, packed as they come down the mountain -- in bags or milk jugs.

So if you can't come to Spruce to collect your own, here´s a fun way to own a bunch of cool crystals.                                                                              Top photo: Finger points
