Report From Tucson – New And Unusual Minerals

February 4, 2011

Could it be that the unusual effects of these recent weather conditions are proof that true climate change is upon us? Yes it looks like the inclement and deleterious effects of the bazaar and extreme weather is proof positive that the planet is, in fact, going through a definite climate change.  Blizzards, storms and record temperature ranges are affecting many people in unusual places.

Tucson Gem and Mineral Show

In fact, Opal dealers here at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson Arizona are having to put their Opals away for fear that the extreme cold will damage them as they are up to 25% water and too fragile to be out in the freezing temperatures.  A lot of people here do not have heat or even water because of frozen pipes.  If this isn’t an indication to people that we are in the midst of great climate change, then it might be because they are not standing outside here with us at the show!!

These people are taking pictures of some common minerals, however, we were able to find some new unseen mineral combinations.   Like, blueish green Emeralds in Pyrite, Amazonite with Smoky Quartz Points…

Leaving Soon for Tucson Gem and Mineral Show

As we enter the New Year, looking forward to change and all the excitement that that brings, it seemed like we survived the political upheavals of 2010 and now we will have to cope with what appears to be the more stringent and material oriented days of the last 10 years.

There fore it becomes incumbent upon us to be kinder and gentler to ourselves, our customers and especially to those who don’t agree with us, because in reality they are the ones with need the most care because they always do.

Those of us and this includes those of you who read this, who work in the White Light will proceed with utmost skill to remember the lessons that we have learned.

New Flame of Ishtar™ Experiences

October 21, 2010

For the most part the Summer Season is over and I have had the full event season to show The Flame of Ishtar™.

Flame of Ishtar

Flame of Ishtar

The response has been very much like the response to Moldavite back 15-20 years ago.  There is a certain co-hort of people who are attracted to it and they are strongly attached.  Most of them are people in helping professions and those who must supply answers.  Most all were women.  Most Men don’t even seem to see it.

So far of the 112 pieces that we were able to make 52 of them have been sold.  So there are about 46 people working with The Flame of Ishtar™ and are reporting back.

Following are some of their responses:

Vivien Schapera,who teaches and practices Crystal Surgery at her Four Winds Academy in Cincinnati Ohio has this to report:

“In Crystal Surgery we use white stones to infuse white light into areas that have been detoxed of negativity, pain, inflammation, past life injuries, present life injuries and lower vibrations.  For this we can use self-healed quart, elestial calcite, selenite and highest vibration of all, white apophyllite.  The Flame of Ishtar™ takes the vibration of white apophyllite several levels higher and is the smoothest, most focused, most powerful of all the choices.”

“When infusing the white light, it is quite advantageous to use each of the crystals listed above, raising the vibrational frequency level by level.  The Flame of Ishtar™ completes the sequence with perfection.”

Sharona, of Lombard Illinois, has this to say about her Flame of Ishtar™:

“The (The Flame of Ishtar™) necklace is beautiful and I’ve been meaning to mail to you my experiences with it; they have been profound.   My experiences with (The Flame of Ishtar™) necklace have shown me that Ishtar was not only a goddess, but she and the necklace represent the flame of the Divine feminine.  The first time I wore it during meditation the necklace was emitting sparks of light similar to a sparkler lite up.  Then a woman started to approach me like an angel.  As she came closer she got larger and brighter, till she merged inside my heart.  I felt an electric charge in my heart space and light was glowing inside me.  When the meditation asked to fill parts of the body with liquid white light, I realized it came from inside of me, not thru the crown chakra, (as previously experienced).  I felt enormous and felt earth was in the palm of my hands.  I can still tap into that feeling today.”

Jean Tindle, who has a Shamanic Healing Practice, Spirit Dancer Crystals, in Chicago Illinois offered this information about her experience with  The Flame of Ishtar™:

My experience with this amazing piece has been that it is a definite portal.  I wear the pendant in ceremony when I wish to be connected with my guides and angels.  When I sat with the piece this afternoon here is what came through.”

“The stone opens the doorway to multi-dimensionality.  It holds the ability to carry a tremendous light and transmit this to the wearer.  It burns away all that is not in resonance with the light.  The vibration is very high.  This is not a stone to wear lightly, put it on and step into a new reality where you are co-creator with Source.  Know the light, Be the light.”

“This crystal is a doorway to remembrance that the true purpose of the soul’s journey is to shine, to be in joy and abundance, and to reflect this outward to all who cross your path.”

“Breath in the light.”

We at Magical Delights are thankful for the wonderful insights from these gifted healers.  We would love to hear comments from other owners of The Flame of Ishtar™.

Opals from Australia

August 19, 2010
Des and Ann Kranz Stop at Magical Delights

Des and Ann Kranz Stop at Magical Delights


Des and Ann Kranz paid us a visit recently.  Des and Ann are real live Opal Miners from Australia who have removed themselves from active mining at this time, and because they were forward thinking, they saved some of the Opals that they mined 20 or 30 years ago which means that they have REAL OPALS, really available.  Consequently, Des is able to still polish Opals for sale.

Des and Ann embark each year from Alice Springs, Australia, which is their home they still live there and travel the world with Opals that Des has polished for that particular year.  They graciously visit their favorite customers and acquaintances and friends that they have acquired over the last couple of decades.

I meet Des and Ann in Tucson about 10 years ago and I guess I got to be one of their friends.  They no longer go to  The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, but as part of their annual world travels, (and much to my surprise), they come to Wausau, every year during the Australian summer and they bring us a supply of their  wonderful Opals.



This Is a Sample Of The Opals That Des and Ann Brought With Them

This large picture is a sample of the actual Boulder Opal that he has brought along to show us.  So, that is the story of Des and Ann Kranz.

You can see jewelry with their Opals on our Website at www.magicaldelights.com.  There is an example of one of these opals on B4, which is Bracelet # 4 on the Original Gemstone Bracelet page. We will have more to come in the near future.


Summer Art Festival Season Has Begun

Summer has begun and so had the Art Festival Season.  We went to Edina Minnesota for the 50th and France 44th Annual Edina Art Fair.  This is usually a Jim Dandy show with many people and excellent Artisans.

Unfortunately we had weather on Saturday.  It rain all day and that quelled the crowd.  Sunday was OK with many people.  The strange thing about this show, and it seems to hold true, that on Friday people buy high end pieces, wands and bracelets, on Saturday we usually sell mid range pendants and Finger Bracelets™, and Sunday is mostly Trinkets, and Finger Bracelets™, so with the rain out on Saturday we kind of missed out.  That’s Summer for you.

The really odd thing was the commercial vendors in attendance at a Fine Art Fair like Edina 50th and France.  It was surprising to see these.

After the show, John, Sandra, Ginny Kreiger from Hook an Ear and her friend Kay all went to dinner, so that was fun.  We will do it all again next weekend somewhere else.  Our next Art Festival appearance will be June 12th 2010 in Rhinelander, WI at Cellcom’s Art Fair on the Courthouse Lawn, and June 13th 2010 in Oshkosh, WI at Oshkosh Fine Arts Association Winnebagoland Art Fair.

Experiences With The Flame of Ishtar™

May 16, 2010

It’s been a while since the last blog because I’ve been on The East Coast presenting Magical Delights to the customers and friends there.  While I enjoyed the people and met some really aware new friends, Dawn, Robin, Rhonda, Eve and many more, I came back with the sad feeling that the East Coast Corridor is WAY too crowded.  It seems as we make technological, cultural and social advances, they don’t improve the human condition, but rather make it worse.  I think we may be missing something.

"Light of the World" "Opener"

Flame of Ishtar™

With that in mind I looked at the responses about  The Flames of Ishtar™ that we have received so far to see if and how they are helping people.  So far this is what I have heard.

Beth Ann Kenndy : reports that The Flame of Ishtar™ is speaking to her on a daily basis and opening up what can only be called “New Vistas”.  She will be writing more.

Vivien Shapera tells us that she uses her The Flame of Ishtar™ daily to perform Crystal Surgery and that her Four Winds Acadamy is going through big changes.

Barbara McVey says “the biggest impact I notice is a sense of calming and safety when I put The Flame of Ishtar™ on.  It is as if I am wrapped in having comfort”  Personally that is what I feel as well.

Jean Tindle, has been sharing with me that she can only wear The Flame of Ishtar™ while in ceremony or else she feels like she is “traveling away”.

These are some interesting results.  I will flesh in more information as information becomes available.
