My Subscription Addiction received this box free for review. (Check out the editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This is a review for the $16.00 Crystal of the Month subscription.
How cute is the crystal covered tape that wraps this sturdy box? Such a lovely presentation!
The crystals were carefully packaged: they were nestled in several feet of white paper and enclosed in bubble wrap. It’s not surprising, then, that they arrived in perfect condition.
The first insert included in the box is an invitation to enter a giveaway by posting a photo of your crystal collection to Instagram. I love that Enchanted Crystal is reaching out to their subscribers and engaging with them; it feels like they’re really forming a community of crystal lovers. Additionally, a surprisingly interesting information sheet is included. It invites us to think about crystals in a different way.
Blue Calcite & Black Kyanite (Bonus Crystals)
Each month, Enchanted Crystal includes a small collection of bonus crystals. I look at these extras as an appetizer; a little taste of beauty to get you hungry for more! The pretties I received here are Blue Calcite and Black Kyanite.
Black Kyanite: I’ve been making gemstone jewelry for 18 years, and I’ve always loved blue kyanite. But in all those years, I’d never seen black kyanite. It’s quite unusual; it almost has the appearance of charred wood. But with a sparkle.
Blue Calcite: This is my favorite crystal in the box; I’m a sucker for blue! These stones remind me of a placid lake: calm and peaceful. I love the contrast between it and the black kyanite, so I’m displaying them together.
What a great start; now, on to the main event!
October’s crystal is Orange Calcite. I love that Enchanted Crystal choses a crystal with a color that fits the season. I received two pieces, each about two inches long. I’ve never seen orange calcite before; it reminds me of a bowl of honey. It has a soft, buttery orange hue, with a shine that almost has a wet look to it. It also feels nice in your hand; I found it relaxing to run my fingers over the smoothness of the crystals.
While I’m used to using crystals and gemstones in my jewelry, I’m new to the mystical aspect. I did some searching online and found that the sun is associated with Orange Calcite, as is the zodiac sign Capricorn. It’s also used to boost confidence and self-esteem.
This is my first box from Enchanted Crystal, and I’m really excited to start my crystal journey! Considering the fact that shipping is included in the $16 cost, I feel that the subscription price is a very good deal. If you’re interested in crystals, this is a great place to start your collection.
