Hi. It has been very quiet on my sales channels lately, where I have not sold a single stone/crystal for about 6-8 months. The reason is mainly that I did not put any effort into trying to sell and rather spent my time experimenting with photos/art from my main collection. Making photos is a little like exploring, plus it is also a great opportunity to learn more about the crystals and their origin. In any case, this is just a hobby project for me, and neither the photos nor selling from this page generate any big money, and the last year I have spent more than I have gained, so I actually prefer to work with the photos/learning, rather than trying to sell. Of course, I am glad to sell if anyone is interested, but I am downscaling the time I use on this. I am also considering getting rid of my online store, as it is pretty expensive (fixed cost). But I will consider it more later. The last year I have also been able to buy some new pieces for my collection. For example, I was able to get my hands on some small faceted zircons (from Seiland) that some German man faceted back in the 1980s. They are small, but they look great in the collecting, next to the natural Seiland zircons.
So in general, the last year has been expensive, but also fun when it comes to the mineral world. Here a picture from my NFT-project (digital art created from my mineral collection). Go to ecryptonite.com if you wish to see more:
