    Crystal wand damaged?

    Post  Sparkster on Sat Apr 01, 2017 2:39 am

    Hey all,

    Just signed up so new to this forum and looking through the topics it looks like I'm going to enjoy it! Anyway, I have a question:

    I had a Selenite crystal wand delivered to my home (I know many people would say not to do that but it's done now) and I'm not sure about it.

    On the one side it looks all nice and shiny and well cut and polished, as you can see in this picture:




    However, on the other side it looks as though the inside has been damaged or the interior has shattered or something, as it looks quite rough. It seems to me that it looks like it's been dropped and landed on that side causing damage inside it. I have, however, been doing some reading and saw something about certain crystal wands having a rough edge on one side so I'm not sure if it's supposed to be like this or not.

    Here is a picture of what the other side looks like:



    Can anyone tell me if this is how it's supposed to be? Is this a standard thing, or am I right in thinking that this has been dropped and damaged?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide some information on this.

    Okay, so I've just received a response from the seller who is claiming that this is the "natural formation" of the crystal and that I should perhaps look for "synthetic" or "manufactured" wands if this isn't what I want.

    Seems a little odd to me why a quarter of it would be "natural" and rough looking and yet the rest of it is carved and polished.

    Can anyone provide a bit of information about this?

    Wouldn't a little research online provide the answer?

    Actually no, I've been searching all over the internet for hours and can find nothing. I've also checked all the books I have on crystals and can still find nothing. That's why I asked here. In fact, it was when I was searching that I stumbled across this forum which is why I joined.

    Did the supplier suggest the wand would be polished on all faces?

    The photos I've seen of Selenite in its natural state suggests it's naturally rough all round so it looks like it's part polished, part left natural. I've seen that configuration with other polished/natural crystals and stones in gem shops.

    A wand is just a tool to help to channel energy through - you should be one with it. This isn't influenced by what you see or what you can learn from the internet... it comes from within you - it's your heart that tell you if a wand is working for you. 

    I used to have a tree that was special for me energetically - it was special and worked with me, precisely because of the damage that had happened to its form, it was the energy of its imperfection that made it perfect for me.  

    To find a wand, you find it with your heart. Try feeling your crystal.
