Crystal Shapes: Raw Vs. Tumbled
Both Raw and tumbled crystals have unique characteristics that make them appealing to those who collect them. But what is the difference between them?

Raw Vs. Tumbled
Raw crystals are those that have all of the hard edges, bumps and imperfections you might expect to find in crystals that you pulled straight out of nature.
