Q: Hello, I haven't purchased from here but I am thinking about it. My question is that, how many gemstones are in the $9.00 subscription box? And which one do you recommend? $9 or $20Asked by Miranda C., October 2019
For the Stone of the Month, there are 2 gemstones which are sent, and the Tumbled Stones Bag has between 4-7 gemstones that come with a pouch. Which box is better really depends on what you're looking for in terms of growing your collection :) We try not to repeat stones as much as possible, and we try to find new, exciting stones, or pick the best of classic stones that are essential for every collection :)
Q: When you get the large box, do you usually get a mix of tumbled and clusters, or does it vary month to month? Are the tumbled stones usually tiny?Asked by Trisha B., June 2019
The stones in our boxes do change from month to month, usually you’ll receive one large cluster, sometimes several smaller clusters and usually the tumbled stones are approximately 1 inch on the longest side but it can vary from month to month and stone to stone.
There will be a mix! I cannot remember a month that was not clusters, tumbled and other pieces. And not only do you get regular cuts, lately, I have been getting carved shapes! Angels, dolphins, pyramids, towers, spirals... one month I even got a very large, GORGEOUS polished piece of orange fluorite. (I even got a pendulum once!) You will always get far more value than you are paying for! I've gotten different subscription boxes over...
Q: Hi I am wondering if the $9 subscription gems/stones come with descriptions or at least identification for the stones?Asked by Stefanie M., November 2019
All of our boxes come with every single gemstone, or item, individually boxed, labeled, and with paperwork accompanying the gemstones received :)
Q: I got a stone in my first subscription that didn't have a box or description, is this expected? I think it's an apaite based on loose Google searches.Asked by Gelise C., October 2019
Any stones from us should always be in a little box with a custom label that tells you what the stone is, and then either a custom-printed postcard or paper telling you the properties of the gemstone. If you'd like to write to us we can certainly help you identify any stone. The only time a stone is not boxed & labeled is if it is given as a free gift.
I like the box but one of the agate slice necklace has been used. Enclosed are pictures of the necklace. Was disappointed in the necklace. Why send a used necklace? UPDATE !! After I posted this review. They responded back and was able to make things right. Wonderfull company. Thank you.
I really enjoyed getting this box. I think in the future I am hoping more for crystal clusters, obelisks, pyramids, spheres and carved gemstones. But for my first month's subscription this was absolutely delightful! My favorite is by far the angel aura quartz that I already put on a red string!
I have never reviewed any of the subscriptions I’ve had, and I had one for over a year. I LOVE this box! Not only the care and effort that is put into the packaging, shipping and explanation of products, but the customer service you get as well. When I first opened the box I was disappointed that there wasn’t a larger focal point but the more I opened the boxes it quickly turned into excitement. I got 2 necklaces, a bracelet and ring, and then some smaller individual stones. The variety was amazing and I got to add a few stones to my collection that I didn’t previously have. I’m really excited to get my next month box. The shipping was ridiculously fast and the seller was kind in her communications. Other subscriptions should take note, just saying. Well done.
The box was nicely packed. I am new at gems and crystals so having them labeled helps a lot. Look at some of the items I received! Wonderful! I bough a year subscription and I am eagerly waiting for my next box! Thanks Malachi ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Today has been the most exciting day ever coming home from work and knowing I have received my first box of crystals. And I must say I love them 😍 I already have two favorites even though I love my crystals but two caught my eyes. Thank you 😊 very much. Can’t wait for my next box to arrive.
I've had this subscription a few months now and it NEVER disappoints! It's always gorgeously curated with stones I love owning but might not have picked for myself. Every month I learn new things about the selected stones, new things about old favorites and receive pieces I will treasure. The clusters are stunning, the polished stones always are of great quality and the roughs are just gorgeous as well. I also love the pages of descriptions are are informative and top quality as well. Perfect for slipping into a notebook, book of shadows or turning into your own reference book.
EDIT- It's been over a year now and I cannot say enough for the large box! It is the highlight of my month! There are always gorgeous, exciting pieces, be it a new shape, a new stone I had not seen before or just such stunning quality! You never know what will be in there. I've seen pendulums, carved stones, spirals, angels, dolphins, pyramids, cubes. Large display pieces that should have cost the price of the box themselves! This is NOT your usual one decent piece and a pile of cheap tumbles to pad them out!
Thank you so much for your love & your feedback on our box, it really means a lot to us that you are so happy with your subscription!
I'm so sad to cancel this subscription. It's brought me so, so much joy the last six months or so. I look forward to it every single month and I have a wonderful collection of crystals and crystal jewelry. I'll be back as soon as I'm able to afford it. Really, this is an amazing subscription service.
Thank you so much.
I loved everything about this subscription box. Each crystal was packaged in their own little gift box, which made it very fun to open and nice to store. While most of my loose crystals are in plastic boxes used for jewelry storage, I'll be keeping my Crystala Gemstones crystals in their cute, little labeled boxes.
It wasn't just the boxes that made this subscription awesome, that was just the packaging. ;)
Each crystal was clearly picked with care. It came with three bracelets of easily-obtained stones and many of the loose crystals I didn't already have because they aren't super easy to find.
I'm leaving this subscription because of financial concerns. That being said, this is an awesome price for such a great service and wonderful crystals. I'll be back as soon as I can :)
What a wonderful box for one who works with crystals. I was surprised to discover beautiful gemstone jewelry in my first box. This box is worth getting and I'm so happy I discovered CGS!!
It's like my birthday or something. The crystals and jewelry pieces are in their own little boxes. Nice variety. I will use/wear everything.
Love it. Great box astounding crystals and great products. Great shipping and great service. Love my box and am so happy to be getting more.
