Grown Up Rock Collection

This trend has been around for a while, but I am in love with amethyst and other semi-precious stones being used as decorative accessories.  They are geodes which are rocks that are plain on the outside, but have beautiful crystals on the inside.  Amethyst, Calcite, Agate and Quartz are all types of geodes.

As a young girl, I remember my father having an amethyst and thinking it was the most beautiful thing in the “whole wide world.”

I am just as smitten with them today!

There are even beautiful housewares made out of these stones.  Check out these Rose Quartz trays.  To DIE for.

Some of these are a bit pricey (or a LOT pricey).  Since I am a gal on a decorating budget, more affordable options can be found at Zgallerie and Target

I think they are the perfect accent to finish off a room. What do you think?  Not just for kids?
