My name is Lucario. I have had such a fascination with crystals for years now. I first started getting into crystals and gemstones about 6 or 7 years ago. I bought my first elephant carving obsidian necklace. I love elephants and it was the reason I was draw to it. I was always wondering what was the difference between real and fake crystals.

I have seen places, stores, online stores, claim to be authentic wholesalers for crystals but the products would be made out of plastic, glass, etc. Passing them off as real stones, real crystals, etc.

I know for a fact some crystals are manmade and some were designed to mimic the real gemstones or crystals but giving off a very appealing look. You should never be paying full price for crystals that are manmade or made out of plastic or glass.
