Salt and Sorcery
An extremely rare and powerful stone from the Elmwood mine in Tennessee, this sphalerite specimen is from my personal collection. It is my firm belief that crystals belong to no one—they are meant to be fostered for a while and to move on when their time with us has come to a close. My elmwood pieces have served me well, and now, two of them have asked to move on.
This piece is an amalgamation of sphalerite and dolomite. To the naked eye, sphalerite looks grey or dark metallic, but upon closer inspection and in the sun, it has a deep red glow and is simply spectacular.
I couldn't possibly display the audacity necessary to tell you what elmwood does or the type of energy it emanates—you will have to find out for yourself. When you're ready for elmwood, you'll know, and it will tell you its secrets. Elmwood is meant for deep excavation and intense spiritual work; proceed with caution.
