'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.
Looking for that perfect crystal gift for your New Age-y friend, but not sure where to begin your search? Maybe you don't have access to a downtown metaphysical shop, or, maybe, as with the rest of your holiday shopping, you plan to bang it out during your lunch break from the comfort of your desktop computer. Either way, look no further than our guide to shopping for crystals online.
We sought out the best places to snag unique gems and minerals of all sorts (and forms) on the internet and selected a few of our favorite things from each shop.
Check out the best aura quartzes, amethyst pendulums, and crystal grids, below.
