Crystals, fossils, and pearlized shells

The beauty of crystals, fossils, and pearlized shells are a welcomed addition to our winter nature table. Their sparkle, shine and shimmer mirror the beauty we see outdoors - icicles, snowflakes, and a silvery coat of white on everything. The facets of the crystal reflect the sun and add a sparkle of light. Very magical.

It's also fun to break open your own geode. You never know what surprise is waiting inside. The natural formation of the crystals vary from stone to stone. Be sure to grab a magnifying glass and take a closer look.

Some fossils were added to our nature table by my little one - which is a new interest of hers. An iridescent ammonite fossil has a rainbow of colors.
