About Crystals By Tom
More Than 40 Years’ Experience
My love for carving quartz crystal comes from over 40 years experience as a lapidarian, combined with a long time interest in metaphysics, with training and apprenticeship under Frank Dorland. A world-renowned art conservator and biocrystallographer, Dorland is best known for his research of the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull from 1964-1970 and for his hand carved Dorland Working Crystals.
Hand-Carved Quartz Crystals
I have been carving crystals in the Dorland style since 1989. Carved into rounded shapes with flowing lines and smooth polished surfaces, it has been said that each finished crystal carving takes on its own personality. I hand select each crystal for carving and meticulously cut and polish each carving into a unique one of a kind piece of jewelry, sculpture, meditation piece, or healing tool.
Types of Quartz Crystal Used in Carving
Pendants are carved from rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, Rutilated quartz, clear quartz, and smoky quartz. I also carve pendants and earrings from a selection of hydrothermal quartz crystal including the well known Siberian Blue quartz. Sculptures and crystal balls are carved primarily from natural clear quartz and smoky quartz. Massage tools and acupressure tools are from both natural and hydrothermal quartz crystals.
My more popular pendant shapes are of ancient symbols such as the Ankh Cross, Mystic Cross, Crescent Moon, Full Moon, Pyramid, and Eternity Ring. Many of my pendants, sculptures, and crystal balls are created in baroque abstract form. It has always been my goal to carve from raw quartz and broken points and return the crystal to an item that radiates beauty and energy.
Unique & One-of-a-Kind
It is with great pleasure that I bring you a selection of my hand carved quartz crystal pendants, sculptures, meditation crystals, massage tools and crystal balls.
