This is a swap for anyone that loves gems, minerals & crystals! I think a lot of pagan's might enjoy this swap or even if you are just into pretty stones or practice New Age or alternative healing techniques!
When you first join this swap you MUST immediately add - below in the comments section - 3 or 4 colors you would like your stone to be. Your partner (when they are assigned) will look for your name below and then go buy you a stone that they choose for you based on one of the colors you have listed.
The stone should be specially purchased for your partner. Most stones are rather inexpensive so this should not be very costly, I would say under $5.00.
The stone that you buy for your partner should be at least around the size of a walnut. I understand that walnuts are round and most stones have odd shapes, especially those that are 'in the rough', but I just want to give a basic idea of what the size should be. In other words, no pea-sized, tiny-little, have-to-squint-to-see-it kind of stones! ;o) They can be bigger, just not smaller than about the size of a walnut.
The gem, mineral or crystal can be smooth & polished, cut or in the rough. Please no stones that have been cut into an animal, heart or any other unnatural shape! No glitter or anything added, no writing on it or etching in it! We want these to be as natural as possible.
Please, please, please find out the name of the gem, mineral or crystal and include it with the stone!!! We all want to know what we have received from our partners! If you are feeling extra-generous you can write down or print out some information about the stone - the attributes, properties, meanings, etc of the stone. But this is not necessary, the name however, is.
I am giving 1 month to find and mail the stone to your partner - that should be more than enough time!
I do check profiles & I will ban anyone who has not added their colors to the comments section by the time partners are to be assigned! It doesn't matter if you have extensive information on your profile, you still must add 3 to 4 colors that you want your stone to be in the comments section.
Please package you stone well (maybe with bubble wrap) so the Post Office doesn't destroy it on the way.
Any questions, please send me a PM. Thank you & I hope everyone enjoys this swap! :o)
Now there is an INTERNATIONAL VERSION! I've gotten a few PMs requesting one so decided that it would be a wonderful idea! All of you here in the USA please feel free to also join the International version as well, it would be a great way to add to your collection and the postage wouldn't be very expensive!
