HI Jordi! We do not sell Tarot decks nor do we plan to sell them. You may find several unique options by searching on Etsy.
Best wishes!

I’m reaching out to you because I came across you website the other day and wondered if you sell Tarot decks.

Hello! I’m happy to have found your site. 😃

I read online in several places that jade was good for the Wolf full moon in January that we just experienced. I’m wondering aside from amethyst if there’s a good crystal for the Snow new moon in February? I’m a February baby so have lots of amethyst.

How to clean and charge a new crystal ball

Sheila Satin - November 4, 2020

Hi Shenial, thank you for your email. We do not carry large Quartz crystal balls at the moment. We hope to resume in the future, but at the moment we are concentrating on boosting up our spheres that are 4 inches or less for mailing and portability sake.

If you are looking for a unique gazing experience, I recommend the Quartz Tourmaline 6 inches we have here:
