For all Uk members and those who travel here interested in a selection specialized crystals and geodes. I know a crystal merchant in the ancient city of York who has a stall in the flea market (interesting story actually behind it), he has a variety of gemstones, geodes and rare minerals for all sorts of applications on sale.
How he came to trading in crystals was because his friend was giving it away. Now 'Nick ' the new owner was not a believer in anything much before this point, and when he took on the stall he found that suddenly he could not get any sleep at all.
One night (told me) he went round to his friends to watch a game of football, his friends wife was a practising wiccan and noticed that he was fatigued, she went up to hum and said "you look like you need smudging".
She then proceeded to place some herbs and eagle feathers into a bowl, lit them. And then using her smudging stick, wafted it around his head. He was quite baffled by all of this and later went home.
Later the next morning Nick comes bursting in to tell everyone that he had the best night's sleep in weeks, It later transpired that it was all of the various energy waves that were radiating from the crystals that were keeping him awake. He is now a fully practising Wiccan!
But for all of you who might travel to York one day to gaze upon it's sights, it's roman architecture or to simple gather your crystal supplies, Nick is your man, just go to the open day market in the city centre and you'll find him there ;)
