Many crystals can be intricately carved into a range of shapes and formats, creating decorative pieces that can be loved and treasured. Some of the popular forms of carved crystals include stones that are formed into angels, animals, hearts, pyramids, wands, spheres, eggs and crystal skulls.
When choosing a piece, look for the type of crystal and carving you most feel drawn to. Some pieces, like crystal hearts, spheres, eggs and palmstones are naturally very tactile and you can hold them in your hand and enjoy the feel of their energies. Crystal carvings such as animals, angels and skulls are often loved for what they represent or the messages they carry.
Other carved crystals, such as wands and pyramids, may be of use in crystal healing work and be more regarded as functional tools, than decorative ornaments.
