See What Our Customers Say

"I cannot recommend Keith and KSC Crystals highly enough! He goes to great lengths to source the very best quality crystals which he sells at the very best prices. He is knowledgeable and enthusiastic and he has an obvious love of the mineral kingdom - this is seen in every aspect of the service which he provides.  Even though I live on the East Coast of the UK and work in Nottingham (which means lots of travel), I still order from Keith in Manchester because of his passion, the quality of his crystals and the level of service that he provides. You can rely on him to choose crystals for you, so there is no need to visit him if travel is a problem. (even though there is a crystal shop in my town, I still choose to shop at KSC Crystals) Also, not everything that he has in stock is on the website yet, so you can always call him if you are looking for something in particular. What more can I say? If you love crystals, you will love KSC Crystals.

Where Do Freshwater Pearls Come From?

Although the traditional source of pearls has been saltwater molluscs, freshwater mussels, which live in ponds, lakes and rivers, can also produce pearls. China has harvested freshwater pearls in the form of maybe since the 13th century, and has now become the world's undisputed leader in freshwater pearl production. The first record mentioning pearls in China was from 2206 BC. The United States was also a major source of natural freshwater pearls, from the discovery of the New World, through the 19th century, until over-harvesting and increasing pollution significantly reduced the number of available pearl-forming mussels in the US.
The Appeal of Freshwater Pearls
Generally speaking, freshwater pearls are not as round as saltwater pearls, and they do not have the same sharp lustre and shine as Akoya pearls. However, they appear in a wide variety of shapes and natural colours, and they tend to be less expensive than saltwater pearls. Because freshwater pearls solid nacre, they are quite durable and are less likely to chipping. This Freshwater pearl bracelet should last you years
