The sunshine lit up the Venusrox crystal pendants so one can fully appreciate their magnificence. Natural, rare, high-quality crystals are not just objects of desire, they can lend incredible energy benefits to whomever connects with the stone and chooses to wear them.

The four pendants are, from left, large purple Tanzanite, followed by a unique piece of rough Watermelon Tourmaline. The bright blue pendant is a rare Paraiba Tourmaline from Brazil, followed by a gorgeous rough Emerald. The single pendant is again our one and only rare stick of Watermelon Tourmaline sitting on a block of Ocean Jasper.

All have been handmade and chosen with the utmost care. They are exclusive to Venusrox and no two are alike. They are the ultimate life accessory…


What a rare find. For those of you who do not know, I am obsessed with included quartz! And to have found this rare, treat online–a fifteen pound lot!!– made my YEAR! I often buy rough crystals and gemstones for I like caring for them once I get them, cleaning them and then taking their photographs. I did give a few pounds worth to a friend for her birthday and the rest… well… you’ll be seeing more of those in the near future ~_^

Goshenite Crystals from, Sao Geraldo do Baixio, Minais Gerais, Brazil

They have the highest frequency of the Beryl stones and are powerful stones of truth. It helps one see both the truth in oneself but also what is true in our surroundings and the people around us. It is an uplifting stone, offering inspiration and release for those who connect to it. It helps one to create and hold a higher vision of what is possible for oneself and gives one the determination to manifest that vision into reality.

Hello. All of these are for sale. I put them in my hand for a sort of size reference. The moonstone and pyrite are rough. The moon stone and Tibetan quartz are a lot, not for individual sale. I can do individual or together with the pyrite.  Make me an offer. Worse I can do is say no (make sure you add shipping to the price and if you live outside the USA, it’s 12 plus for shipping, depending on what you get). Please don’t pop in with low amounts. I was involved in  a fire in December and need the funds to get some items I lost (minor stuff). Thank you.
