mining march 2016

Ever wonder how the giant crystals you see come to be in our shop at Crystal World?

Here is a mine in Victoria, Australia where very large crystals are abundant, though difficult and dangerous to extract. It is a long trip to the floor of the mine, and an even longer trip  coming back up at the day’s end.

They are not so easy to extract from the mine. Often the ones you want are not safe to take out.

We are building a collection in Canberra for the National Dinosaur Museum. For now, there is a lot of work to get these beauties ready for sale.
