Crystals carved into shapes and then polished make for unique display pieces. Not only are they "a bit different", but they still carry the energy of the stone from which they're carved.
Shaped pieces come in an array of designs, incl eggs, skulls, animals, and even small dishes.
These crystals can make for a special gift that's just right for the receiver. (I am a sucker for carved skulls and have found them to be a hit when unsure what to get a man or boy! 😊)
Use these stones in the same way that you do any other; in meditation, during times of stress or health concerns, for chakra healing, or simply to align the energy in a room.
The image you see is the exact piece that you are purchasing.
