PLEASE NOTE: Be mindful, each of these crystals is hand selected by us in person, completely unique in size and shape and is therefore irreplaceable. For this reason we strongly advise Express Shipping with signature upon delivery, assuring it arrives safely in your hands. 

They are cut by hand and vary in size and shape. They do have signs of the carver's hands along the edges. As they come from the earth, most of them have natural inclusions. Because they are so limited, we can not accept any specific preference requests on the size, shape, or clarity, but know that each crystal has been selected for its quality and beauty.  

Your Hummingbird Talisman will arrive to you with an 18" chain. This length lets the crystal rest against your chest, keeping it safe from harm. If you prefer a different length, please reach out to us via email. Please be mindful that crystals are somewhat delicate in nature and can chip if they are worn at longer lengths.  


The delicate image of the tiny, lightning fast hummingbird, (weighing only the weight of a penny), is paired with a magnificent quartz crystal point. These two symbols are then further joined with luminous sterling silver, metal found deep in the earth, and known for its qualities of retaining memory.

The hummingbird is known as the only bird that can fly backwards as well as forwards, suggesting a kind of time traveling or extra sensory ability other birds as symbols lack. Birds in general are often associated with having a place in both the earthly world as well as the spirit world, making them sensitive to death and higher consciousness.

Being relegated to the Western hemisphere only, the hummingbird turns up in native and Aztec lore and myth. Aztecs wore hummingbird fetishes as emblems of strength, and for the image of their sharp beaks; symbolic of bloodletting and piercing. The image was carved onto the shoulders of priests, and hummingbirds were also considered to be reincarnated warriors. This idea is often found in other cultures and thus the hummingbird is often associated with containing the spirits of those who have crossed over.

Here the hummingbirds act as guardians to the crystal, forging a sacred trinity, a symbol of the afterlife and higher consciousness. Cast immortal in sterling silver and perched atop the crystal, and forever conjoined at their beaks, and oxidized to my obsessive shade of gloomy gray.

Clear Quartz: 

Despite its ubiquitous accessibility within the crystal kingdom, clear quartz remains one of the most potent crystals one can own, considered to be the 'Master Healer' as it can be used to assist you with any issue. Thought to be a 'memory/record keeper' that enables recall of lost memories, it also helps amplifies spiritual pursuits and increases psychic awareness. 

These crystals are hand cut and vary in size and shape. They do have signs of the carver's hands along the edges. These are not fabricated by a machine, they are made by hand and therefore aren't uniformly perfect. As they come from the earth, most of them have natural inclusions.
