Interesting--your handle is crystal. This is only an assumption but you probably have a crystal hanging around your neck or somewhere in your possession.

One of the more visually destructive mining operations in the ******* Range (name removed to protect the range from crystal seekers, let's just say it is in the desert somewhere north of Mexico) is a crystal mine where they used a bulldozer to strip/scrape the surface, trees pushed into piles and burned, and so on. Really looks great. These crystals, to my best guess, went to the flea market and crystal shop circuit, where they were ooed-&-ahhed over about how pure they are and what a source of power they are, focusing the universe and such new-age tripe like that.

If a crystal was a source of power (which it isn't, a crystal is the result of the lowest state of energy in a mineral, that is why it is a crystal), and had half a mind, it would explode over such hypocrisy.

I could be wrong, you may be surrounded only by vegetative products, in which case I appologise for my arrogant asumptions.
