Processing Selenite


This is to give y’all an idea of what it takes to bring these beautiful crystals from the New Mexico desert to you.

Quarry Time

The Selenite Quarry is south of Carlsbad, NM near the Guadaloupe Mountains. The energy is gorgeous and magical. Job one is to survey and plan the dig.

Brushing off the mixture of dirt, sand and clay so we can see where to cut. 

Pressure washing to see how far back this slab goes.
