REVIEWS

I have been a customer of KSC Crystals on and off for several years and I have always found Keith to be very, very helpful. This purchase was no exception. I'm so fascinated by crsytals and their healing properties and wanted to create a grid for a specific reason. Keith rang me to discuss my needs before choosing some wonderful crystals on my behalf. His customer service is second to none.

I was nervous because I'd never ordered from this company before. My concerns were totally unfounded. My purchase arrived in a very timely manner & was exactly the same piece I looked at. I could not possibly have asked for better. Thank you very much. I look forward to ordering from you again.

As always, the crystals received were stunning I LOVE Dragon's Blood and highly recommend it. KSC is also GREAT at sending some as a gift Who wouldn't love receiving crystals in the mail And again, as always....a lovey crystal as a gift Thank you KSC....I recommend you often to friends and clients

ABOUT Burn Anne Agate

Burn Anne Agate

Found near the source of the Burn Anne just south of the town of Galston in Scotland.
The Burn Anne is a small stream running northwest and draining into the River Irvine. The stone was also generally used in Scottish “Pebble” jewellery. In the nineteenth century, the burn was the site of substantial workings that comprised one of the only commercial operations ever set up to extract Scottish agates. Verification of these old excavations can still be seen along the banks of the burn and in the nearby fields.
It is also said that the area was extensively “mined” for agate by the local coal miners during the depression in the 1920s. The agate they found would mainly have been sold on to lapidaries in Glasgow and Edinburgh although some was sent as far afield as Cornwall.
Burn Anne material mainly occurs as veins or “lenses”. The beautiful vein agate is found as brick-sized blocks of material within the soft, almost clay like, pale-green “rotted” lava. Matthew F. Heddle described the Burn Anne agate as being “altogether unrivalled in beauty”. The colour of the fortification agates includes red, orange, yellow and white and is associated with grey and pale purple chalcedony.
Because the agate veins mainly lie several feet below ground level finding any agates at the Burn Anne requires a lot of hard work and is not easy.
Only a few dedicated collectors have, in recent years, been lucky enough to find any worthwhile material from this locality.
