We were all greeted by a male who I think is the owner with a man hug for everyone - not my cup of tea - interesting selection of products but seemed expensive to me but I am not an expert in this area

If you don't like this sort of thing, why did you come? Sorry about the hug, but you must be one of the 1% that I come across. I sell quartz crystals from $15 per kilo which I believe are the cheapest in Australia. By the way are you a friend of Juanita Ing? Two reviews now - both complaining about the Hug and being Expensive, sounds very suspect.
You say "interesting selection of products, but seemed expensive to me, but I am not an expert in this area" so how do you know there expensive? if you are not an expert in this area. We happen to be one of the cheapest!

This is well worth the trip out to Carmel. Fantastic array of Crystals and other curiosities. Stan(the proprietor) is a real character with a big heart. There isn't anything he doesn't know about crystals and much more. There is always much laughter and fun to be had here. The sense of peace and tranquillity makes it's hard to leave.
