Are Fruit Named Quartzes Real?

Question: I was told that fruit named Quartz are not real. They are just colored to make more money. Is that true?

My Answer: Most fruit named quartzes are man made, lab created quartz or glass that is colored. blueberry quartz, cherry quartz, pineapple quartz, as well as a lab created strawberry quartz are some kinds. There are others.

There are however natural stones that also have fruit names. There is natural strawberry quartz which is lepidocrosite and hematite in quartz, natural pineapple quartz when the name refers to candle quartz, and natural tangerine quartz. There probably are more examples of natural fruit named quartz, but these are the only ones that come to mind offhand.

"Playing" With Shungite

I don't often get as much time as I'd like to play with new crystals and stones.  I got the chance recently to play with some quality shungite*, and I was wowed!

When I first picked up a piece of this shiny shungite shown here, I felt like I had dipped my hand in cool water or maybe a lotion. I don't know if it was because of the fullerenes or what, but it is a wonderful sensation. It happens every time I pick up this gorgeous stone.

Light is a word you might not associate with a stone that's shiny black, but Light comes to mind with this shungite. I got the most Light and almost bubbly sense of grounding from it. I thought that seemed strange until I refreshed my memory and found that it does indeed ground spiritual energy to bring it into the Earth plane. It sure feels like it!

Shungite is used by many to protect from EMF radiation from televisions, computers, cellphones, and such. I've been on the computer entirely too much lately, so I decided to see how I would feel with a barrier of shungite between me, the computer, and the monitor. Wow, my tired out red eyes felt much better after just a day, and I feel calmer. I'm hooked; bad news for a contest since I'm not letting it go. Good news for me, though!

I highly recommend that you try shungite yourself. It might feel different to you, but I would be surprised if you didn't like it.


*Shungite provided at no charge by The Shungite Store. The thing they asked in return  was that I write about my experiences with shungite and give a link to their shop. My opinions are my own and are expressed as such.  They may not realize it, but I have purchased items from them in the past and they were all good quality and arrived in a timely fashion. So I have no qualms at all about sharing their link.
