do man-made stones/crystals/etc have any magickal value? i’ve seen posts saying they aren’t, but i’ve also seen posts saying it doesn’t matter.
is it just a personal preference or is there a real reasoning as to why they’re no good?

  • Swarovski crystal
  • Man-made
  • Swarovski crystals are glass beads with lead in their structure.
  • They are associated with frivolous luxury. Rich people with more money than sense show off their wealth by owning something covered in Swarovski crystals.
  • Swarovski is a brand name, though it has come to be synonymous with lead glass the same way that we call petroleum jelly “Vaseline”.
  • Though the Swarovski company make the crystals primarily for fashion, they also make them for sensible purposes like camping binoculars and roadsign reflectors.
