I absolutely adore working with crystals! I find them really grounding, which is something I definitely need, being a double air sign - sun and ascendant. However, I recently heard something which gave me pause. Someone said that they wouldn't use crystals because mining them is like raping the earth. Now, obviously, I'm not going to get rid of the crystals I already have, but I haven't bought any more since. And I wonder whether I should also protest mining practices. Anyhow, I recorded a little show-and-tell with some of my favourite crystals, and pose the question.
