March 2019 Enchanted Crystal Variety Box Review

Enchanted Crystal Big March 2019 note

First, you’ll see a note from Adam of Enchanted Crystal. Adam went back to the Tucson Gem Show for a second time to collect even more amazing crystals for us in the future.

Amethyst Cluster

One can never have enough amethyst. Look at that juicy purple color! I love these clusters because in addition to having tons of pointy crystal goodness they also nearly always have interesting bottoms. I love looking at the cross-section of crystals like this and seeing how an ugly rock slowly turns into crystal magic, layer upon layer. Kind of like a time lapse of me waking up and putting on makeup in the morning! Amethyst is one of those stones that is said to have a host of healing benefits, such as stress relief, cleansing, and enhancing intuitiveness. I love to keep them around because they are just beautiful to look at.

Brazilian Quartz

This gorgeous cluster looks like pure ice out of the front of a fridge door. I love the shape of this large crystal and the bottom is nearly flat! It is actually the perfect size for sitting between my laptop keyboard and screen. Yeah, I went there. Do you guys remember when Spencer Pratt from the Hills bought ALL of the crystals? I am basically him right now.

Rose Quartz

I love getting quartz in crystal boxes because they just look really cool! This pretty pink crystal has such beautiful lines and striations. Rose quartz is a love stone and highly cherished in healing for its ability to encourage trust and unconditional love. The rose color actually comes from small amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese (SCIENCE!) and it can range from the palest rose to a deeper pink.

Pyrite

I remember getting my first piece of Fool’s Gold on a family trip to Arkansas, where my Mom would take me to a bunch of little hole in the wall rock and crystal shops. It is easy to see why people thought this was gold. It has a metallic flashy finish and feels heavier than it should for its size. This mineral also displays some super interesting geometric complexities and it is not uncommon to find specimens in perfect cube shapes! Fun fact, you can also strike pyrite with flint or another piece of pyrite to create a spark and build a fire. Try it out on your next camping trip to really impress your fancy friends. Now that’s glamping!

Tibetian Quartz

These humble little quartz pieces are probably my favorite this month because they have really interesting inclusions. I THINK the inclusions are probably bits of black carbon, but who knows! Lots of interesting stuff can get stuck inside crystals when the minerals build up around them. These look like pure chipped glass and when held up to light you can also see light bent into different colors and rainbows.

Enchanted Crystal always sends bonus crystals or minerals in a small bag as well.

Black Tourmaline

I have quite a few pieces of this handsome black stone. It is widely considered a stone of protection, and if you have never carried a piece of this around in your bra, you can’t judge me for believing it. These particular pieces have interesting white inclusions.

Rough Amethyst

I love that this sub sends perfectly polished crystals as well as rough pieces like this amethyst pair. These have a foggy coating that is really interesting!

Madagascar Quartz

This was a quartz heavy month, and you will hear no complaints from me! I have always loved these little interesting quartz pieces ever since I was a kid and an older man at one of those Arkansas rock shops told me they were fairy teeth. That was pretty magical for a kid, and also terrifying because I didn’t know if he was lying or not. These have interesting orange residue on them, which I am guessing is some sort of clay or iron.

Verdict: Enchanted Crystal is always a sub I look forward to each month, and this month I was so thrilled to get both their Crystal of the Month and this larger Crystal Variety box! This is truly a fantastic sub for anyone who uses crystal in healing or just has an interest in them for science or beauty, or for those of us who just like shiny things. I am obsessed with these larger specimens and already have them surrounding my workspace. The amethyst is beautiful and quite big, as is the ice quartz. Pyrite takes me back to my childhood and the rose quartz wand is so girly and marvelous. I always enjoy the little bags of extra minerals too, because they might be small, but they are always weird or interesting.

To Wrap Up:

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I love your story about the older gentleman and the “Fairy teeth”. Too cute.

  2. Is this. 3 mont minimum commitment?

    • No, there is a month to month option during the Cratejoy checkout process 🙂

  3. I’m so glad to see that you reviewed the larger box! I received my first box last week and immediately fell in love with the large amethyst cluster that I received. I’ve been debating about subbing to the larger box and after reading this review I going to try it out for a few months! Thanks for the great review!

    • I was so excited to review it. Let me know what you think when you get your boxes!

  4. Hey Megan! Would it be possible for you to include the approximate dimensions of the “hero” stones? It’s always hard to tell from pictures. Thanks for reviewing the bigger box!

    • Oops just saw someone else already suggested this..

    • I can absolutely make note of the approximate sizing in future reviews! Thanks for the suggestion!

  5. Morgan, another great review! It’s very useful to see how their big and small boxes compare.

    I also received this box this month, and it’s interesting that some of the things we got were the same (amethyst, pyrite, Tibetan quartz) but some were different. I got a beautiful selenite spiral that is absolutely STUNNING and a few other things that I mentioned in the comments on the review of the smaller box.

    One thing that would be useful in your reviews is if you could provide a sense of the size of the crystals as that greatly influences value. You could show a ruler or even something like a dollar bill or quarter in the photos.

    This month was my first month and I have nothing but great things to say about this company. I can’t wait for my next box!

    • I will absolutely give an approx size call out next month. I can see why that would be super helpful! Do you follow Enchanted Crystal on IG? Sometimes you can get peeks at them packaging things and its exciting to peep crystals that might come your way early.
