Things that bring me joy....






I spent an hour yesterday trying to find giant spikey amethyst crystals for my home... no luck... theyre all those geode style sugar crystally ones I want THIS, in purple:
... someone point me in the right direction please... they dont even have to be real, glass spikes would be great too, i just want LARGE PURPLE CRYSTALS preferably gathered in ODD numbers 5 or 7 would be ideal, varying height, DARK PURPLE, none of this cloudy polished amethyst stuff... I want THE TREASURES OF SNAKE MOUNTAIN!!!

You can try on eBay although they can be in high demand which causes the bids to go up. It depends on how much you want them. You're more likely to luck out in New York City if you look around deeply enough. I lucked out and got really beautiful amethyst geode crystal bookends here at a TJ Maxx store. They occasionally get a mix of gem geodes cut as bookends.
