Crystals for Beginners: Top 3 Specimens You Need in Your Home

Are you new to the world of crystals and minerals? Or maybe you’re looking for the perfect gift for a crystal-loving friend or family member? Look no further than LuxeRox, a woman-owned crystal subscription box service based in Colorado, USA. With LuxeRox, you’ll receive a palm-sized museum caliber mineral specimen delivered to your doorstep every month. And not only will you be enhancing your own crystal collection, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause – a portion of LuxeRox’s proceeds go to Gem Legacy, a charity that supports East African artisanal gem mining communities.

Here are the top 3 specimens you need in your home, all available through the LuxeRox crystal subscription:


Fossils are truly a marvel of the natural world, and the ammonite fossil is no exception. In fact, ammonites are thought to be some of the most impressive fossil specimens out there. When you subscribe to LuxeRox, you’ll receive an ammonite fossil in June. Ammonites are actually extinct cephalopods, a type of mollusk. And not only are they fascinating from a scientific perspective, but they also make great decorative pieces for your home. If you’re looking for a special gift for a new mom, consider giving an ammonite specimen as a push present – it’s said to have healing properties that can help with labor pains.


If you’re a fan of vibrant colors, azurite-malachite is the specimen for you. This combination of malachite and azurite is truly stunning, with deep greens and blues that seem to shimmer and shine in the light. Azurite is a deep blue copper carbonate hydroxide that has been used for pigments and dyes in European art for centuries. Malachite, on the other hand, is a green mineral that has been used for decorative purposes for thousands of years – it may even be the earliest ore of copper. Together, these two minerals create a specimen that is not only beautiful but also historically significant.


If you’re looking for a specimen that’s out of this world, look no further than celestite. This mineral has actually been found on the moon! Celestite mineral specimens can come in a variety of colors, but it’s most well-known for its stunning blue hue. And despite its extraterrestrial origins, celestite is perfectly safe to touch and hold – in fact, it’s said to have calming and soothing properties that can help ease anxiety and promote a sense of inner peace. With its sky-like appearance, a celestite crystal is the perfect addition to any home looking for a touch of celestial beauty.

You can buy ammonite, azurite-malachite and celestite from LuxeRox! LuxeRox is a subscription box service that sends one palm-sized museum-caliber mineral specimen to your door every month. We offer 3 and 6-month crystal subscriptions, and the “crystal of the month” is determined by our Rox Calendar.
