Crystal quartz in its purest form is a natural rock formation of incredible beauty and power. Crystal has long held mystical properties for many people, who believe different crystals have healing powers. We adore their sparkle when used on clothing and accessories, and have seen how widely they are used to achieve both the grunge image and the boho look, to say nothing of the good old fashioned starlet magic. Crystals can shimmer and shine like diamonds and have a magical air. Sewn onto fabric, glued onto shoes or cute bags, set in silver and gold, they brighten up all our lives and add a touch of glamour.
