My Personal Crystal Collection and Their Uses

I just thought I would make this post to catalogue my personal collection. I’ve been collecting crystals for a while now, but most of these I got within the last year. Current count is 148 crystals in the primary collection, and 13 in the secondary collection. My Primary collection is for smaller specimens that I work with, while the secondary collection is for larger specimens of different shapes that are usually larger in size for display purposes. Crystals are the only thing I really collect and many of them were given to me as gifts, so I really treasure them. At some point in the future I will be adding photographs of each individual crystal, as well as my secondary collection.
