      Very beautiful stone, a soft cold dark gray with lighter shades like light whiffs of clouds and lighter veins in light grey and even reddish. It seems to hold many secrets and be soothing at the same time. Can’t wait to work with it :)

      These are top quality crystals. These stones have such a beautiful vibration. The first thing that came to my mind was “Peace on Earth.” I wanted these stones for a pendant I will be making but I will be purchasing more for a grid. They are powerful!

      Julie is such a wonderful person to deal with and it’s obvious the stones are consciously chosen — the Cradle of Humankind I just received has a wonderful energy. I’ve always been happy with my Moonrise Crystal purchases and I’m also grateful for Julie’s dedication regarding the information she provides on her site about the stones. I highly recommend Moonrise Crystals.
