In 2015, I was asked about Anchi crystals. I had never heard of them, so decided to check it out. They are technically not a fake nor a forgery. I will say, after reading the website and its claims? I am calling this a case of serious hokum (my opinion).
Their generalities on what the crystal is, along with a huge list of claims, just makes me shudder. They state that these pieces are found in only one place in the world.
Attempting to keep an open mind, I decided to email the owner of the website and ask about these claims. I requested a geological testing report to confirm exactly what were in these crystals. Her response was, sadly, exactly what I expected.
Kristi, We do not make available this information to the public. Thank you for your interest. Regards, (name of owner)
From the website, “Colors of the ANHI Crystals represented: violet blues, purples, pinks, greens, bright yellow. The textures range from purple glitter, metallic rose bronze, white feathered formations, pinks sprays, lavender grey pearls, and vivid multi-colors. There are over fifty documented kinds of crystals including tourmalines, lepidolites, beryls, and topaz. As beautiful as they are, however, their real power lies in their physics.”
To be honest, most of these appear, to me, to be Lepidolite in matrix, pink tourmaline w/lepidolite in matrix or just the matrix with no tourmaline left. They have written a great story but are not open to sharing the science of their claims (see above).
My final determination? For me personally? This a thumbs down. You will literally choke when you see the prices for such common materials.
This is the perfect example of the stories/fairy tales vendors may create to get you to purchase from them. Do your research. Ask questions. If someone is unwilling to share information with you? I would think twice about sharing my money with them.
