The Point Is - Archive of Notes & Observations at Montgomery Crystal Co
30 July 20: Here is a large clear quartz cluster featuring several unusual NATURALLY iridescent crystals, uncommon 7h faced points, and doubly-terminated, self-healed, and rainbow individuals. You will notice even more varieties as you examine this grouping in person: more tabular and twin, triplet and rider crystals, record keeper crystals, and glittering drusy to the sandstone partial matrix. Iridescence and rainbows change/appear/reappear as you turn the cluster, too.

Overall 5-1/4x 4x 8" long. The main, stepped shield faced tabular crystal is 1-1/2x 2-3/4x 5-3/4" high! The many-penetrated doubly-terminated crystal riding to its' right is a sleek trans-channel of 4" tall. No damage, two old conchoidals on the flip side.

Full of suprises! Collier Creek. #WT06-1370

21 July 20: Butterflies play tag on your dresses! Okay, on your jackets and tees, too! Fabulous rainbowed Arkansas rock crystal is highlighted on the mama coppery fly with pink and rose glinting rhinestones.

29 March 20: while we prefer our rock crystals and clusters au natural, Rebecca Selva at Fred Leighton's says:

07 January 20: Birthday Order

I’ve been stalking your site for awhile now in hopes of finding a good birthday crystal for myself well one that I could afford and eat for the month. Damn do you have some good fantasy purchases. I have passed most pieces onto others at this point as gifts when I felt people could use them. There was one I held onto because it always felt special. To this day, I carry it with me almost everywhere I go. I feel like a new one for 2020 is needed - or I’m choosing to need it for a fresh start.

Thought I would share how special it is to me because who doesn’t like to hear that!?

28 February 19: Each rock crystal, quartz cluster, rough stone and bead has been chosen for our stock by asking them if they are the right ones to come with us for you. So that much has been settled.

When we combine them to make jewelry [and Illuminator tm bookmark/pendulums, Bud Bottles, Jeweled Picture Frames and so forth], it's the crystals, clusters, and stones who choose the beads, findings, ribbons, velvets to be with.

It's also the way your gift crystal or cluster is found and sent to you.

Take a moment to reflect on that...and you might like to see the feedback page, too!

December 31/18: And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched, full of things that have never been, full of work that has never been done, full of tasks, claims, and demands; and let us see that we learn to take it without letting fall too much of what it has to bestow upon those who demand of it necessary, serious, and great things.

Arkansas Quartz Clusters

October 24/18: Arkansas rock crystals regardless of looks deliver the strongest, cleanest energy over any other sort. To select, sort, and grade, to organize your own collection get my book and learn how. The visuals are priceless and portable.

October 18/18: Natural Arkansas rock crystals and clusters are known for their exceptional clear and strong energy - the best. Shown is a large cabinet 'butterfly' with substantial, radiating force in the nicest way. Self-displays safely in several positions.

October 11/18: Each rock crystal, quartz cluster and gem rough chooses to come with us from Arkansas to find you. They also choose which gemstone beads and findings they want to combine with to suit your particular needs and style. A perennial favorite is our Lucky Bar H pin with a rare needle Arkansas rock crystal perched on the shamrock charm. Corral and focus your forces - and Western is so hot right now!

September 27/18: An outstanding, perhaps unexpected, pronounced rare faden veil inside of top quality ARKANSAS tabular crystals in parallel growth. Rainbows may tempt you to negotiate, meditate, ruminate with a lightness of spirit.

September 20/18: Natural rock crystals draw energy through and along themselves, clarify and amplify it. They do not have to be clear to do this: all veiled, milky, chipped, rough, and damaged crystals do this, too. When you specifically ask your crystal [and/or crystals, cluster[s], rough stone[s]] to help and work with you, consider the wiser, stronger and most experienced Arkansas quartz - they have the purest no-nonsense way with a dash of humor.

September 12/18: You need to ditch your expectations and go for the real. Cut to look 'real', crystals boiled alive to sear pretty and pretty toxic colors to them, swarovski glass aren't real. They can't and won't help out. Be true to yourselves and get the real thing.
