Crystal & Pendulum FAQs

What is a pendulum?
A pendulum is simply a weight hung from a string or chain.  Pendulums can be thought of as an extension of the intuition, since it is used to gain access to information that exists at your subconscious level. It could be said that it strengthens or amplifies the intuition because when you ask a question of the pendulum, it is your own intuition that answers it. The pendulum merely allows you to physically see what the intuition already knows. 

How do I use my pendulum?
Because of how it operates though, the pendulum can only answer "yes" or "no" questions.  First you need to determine which way your pendulum rotates or sways to answer yes or no.  To do this hold the pendulum very still by the end of its chain and ask, either out loud or to yourself any question that you know the answer is yes to then wait for it to respond.  Once it has responded, make the pendulum be still and ask it a question that you know the answer is no to.  Once you have determined which way means yes and which way means no you can now consult your pendulum on most things.  We sell a few different books that can take you even further on how to use your pendulum.

Where do you get your crystals and pendulums from?
The country of origin really depends on the type of semi-precious stone as we carry pieces from all over the world.  If we know what it is, you will find the country of origin listed on the description.

How do I cleanse my new crystal or pendulum?
There are many different ways that you can cleanse your new crystal and is something you should always do as soon as possible after purchasing it.  The energy and light from the full moon is known to be a cleanser as well as burying them in sea salt or purified water.  Some prefer the water method as salt can sometimes scratch the surface of softer crystals.  Both the salt and water method need no more than an hour or two.
