Using crystals for their healing attributes have risen in popularity over the last few years. However, there are more to crystals than their beauty and their ability to heal, which is the focus of the New Haven Mineral Club. I had the opportunity to attend their 48th Annual Show this past weekend, and was amazed at the variety of crystals to look at and were available to purchase. The event is held annually, and is a great way to obtain crystals at great prices.
The show was held at the Amity Regional Middle School in Orange, and offered so many different vendors selling crystals found from all over the world. What I found interesting was that so many of the people selling crystals that came from Connecticut, which was something that was unexpected for me. Vendors spanned throughout the gymnasium and the cafeteria, all of which selling jewelry, crystals both raw and polished, and vintage jewelry. I was blown away by the amount of stuff that I could look at. I have a morganite engagement ring, and I thought it was so cool to see morganite in the raw form.
Furthermore, what I thought was cool about the show was the vast amount of information that was available at our fingertips. I learned so many interesting facts about crystals, and the people at the tables were extremely passionate about their work. For me, that energy is contagious and something that I continually love.
While I was there, I purchased a few different crystals: a labordite crystal, a unikite crystal, and a malachite bracelet. The quality of the stones were amazing, and the prices were amazing. I went with my mother in law, who had purchased a gorgeous selenite rose and a raw amethyst crystal.
Overall, if you love jewelry, crystals, or just learning about something new, I highly recommend that you check out the New Haven Mineral Club for their events, because it’s so cool. For further information, please check out their website here.
