WHO RUNS ARKANSAS CRYSTAL WORKS BESIDES GENN JOHN?
As for the website, I am the only person here behind the scenes.
I always wonder when I go to a website, “Who is behind this thing? Who is doing all this packing, handling, writing and busy-work?”
To answer that simply, it’s me. Arkansas Crystal Works = Genn John.
Beginning from the ground level up, I select the crystal, I measure, weigh, photograph and “read” it.
I write the web pages, and post the crystal for adoption.
On an administrative scale, I am the web-mistress and secretary.
I answer all the e-mail. I take your orders and carefully pack and ship the crystal to your home with positive intention.
I am the “boss” of me (so I can fire myself if I don’t do a good job). I promise to do a good job, though, because I love what I do.
Enough about me. On to the crystals…
HOW DOES THE CRYSTAL AT ARKANSAS CRYSTAL WORKS GET FROM GENN JOHN TO YOU?
It is my mission to adopt crystals to their new homes, helping to spread their light into the world.
Basically, I assist the crystal through its entire journey from the crystal mine to your home.
It is very important to me that your crystal is in a positive and loving atmosphere from the time is it held for description on the website until it is carefully wrapped to be delivered to your door.
I have been honored with a unique opportunity to assist the crystals to where they need to go and my intention is always to do it with love and grace.
I don’t see Arkansas Crystal Works as a “business”, or that I am in “control” of the crystals or that they are my possessions.
Crystals are sentient beings and deserve our honor, respect and humble gratitude.
To clarify, I don’t see myself as anything but a helper to the crystals, simply because they can’t get to where they need to go on their own.
Genn John = crystal caretaker.
FROM WHERE DOES THE CRYSTAL AT ARKANSAS CRYSTAL WORKS COME?
The crystal available from Arkansas Crystal Works has all been hand selected by me (Genn John), and it is crystal from Arkansas unless otherwise specified.
You won’t find only the “highest quality”, AAA grade (“perfect”) crystal and not the chipped or damaged here. There is an inherent beauty in all things and many times the empathic (broken, chipped or damaged) crystals have the greatest pull, both energetically and emotionally. I do my best to include an accurate physical description with each crystal.
I have developed the ability over the years to channel energetic, thought and vibrational information from the crystals. This occurs primarily through my Crystal Guide, Venus, but also through the individual crystal collective.
I am happy to help you select the crystal companion meant to come live and work with you. Check the “Ask Genn” page for more information on this or simply send me an email.
When I am at a shop, selecting crystal for the website, many times aesthetically or vibrationally I might not be drawn to a certain crystal. However, if my hand is drawn to it a second time, I bring it home, knowing it is for someone specifically. It might be for you!
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT HOW YOU RECEIVE YOUR CRYSTAL FROM ARKANSAS CRYSTAL WORKS?
Every order sent out is carefully wrapped and packaged.
Because crystals are sentient beings, it is of utmost importance to me that they are handled with respect and honor.
I lovingly and carefully wrap and package each crystal for their journey to your home.
Every order comes with a thank you gift. The thank you gift is usually a small crystal point or cluster and is chosen for you specifically when I package your order.
It is my goal that you feel the love and care taken with your new crystal friend.
If for any reason you aren’t satisfied, let me know. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
