"One of these things is not like the other, one of these things is kind of the same..."
Have you ever looked at a whole bunch of tumbled black crystals, and wondered what the difference is, or even which one was which? Most of us see crystals in their tumbled form. Which takes away from a lot of the structural differences which can be very important in choosing the crystal that is right for you and your purpose. I prefer raw crystals. I find that their power is greater, and honestly they look prettier too (at least in my opinion 😜). So as I found this nice little reference chart for black crystals, I thought I would pass it on. Colored crystals are much easier to differentiate, as you can see color variations and often crystal structure within the tumble. But to someone who is just starting out, telling the difference between non-magnetic hematite and tourmaline is often a chore.
I hope this chart helps you in your spiritual growth journey and finding what is right for you. If you have any other questions feel free to give me a shout. I'm happy to help. 🥰
