Hi Folks, I always used to keep a stash of cheap fluorite crystals to
give away to kids (nieces, nephews, friends’ children, etc.) who came
over and viewed my rock/mineral/crystal collection. I always felt it
reminds them of the wonder of the experience as they grow older…
maybe feeding our next generation. Anyway, I’ve been unable to
replenish this supply at recent rock/gem shows… seems everyone used
to carry them, so nobody does anymore.
Now I’m going to do a presentation for my own daughter’s
kindergarten class (get their minds while they’re young…) and would
like to give each kid a crystal to take home. Does anyone have a
source for inexpensive, but pretty crystals I can pick up to inspire
the imagination and wonder of these bright kids? By the way, it’s a
"magnet school" program; a dual-language academy. My daughter,
Danielle, is in a Spanish immersion program. It’s a really fantastic
public school program and has received national recognition.
Feel free to email me directly, if you’d like.
All the best, and TIA (Thanks In Advance),
