I've always had a fascination with crystals and minerals and started collecting and foraging for them when I was really young. Below is partially my collection and some of the really fancy ones are from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) If your in the Toronto area, you've got to visit!
Also if your in the Toronto region there are a few upcoming gem and mineral shows this weekend and the follow, the London ON and the downtown Toronto show . I'm going to try to make it to both.
Also check out Carly Waito's gem and mineral paintings, she's a Toronto based artist and her work is incredible!
