Polished, Raw, Rough and specimen - What's the difference?
NATURAL RAW ROUGH CRYSTALS AND STONES
When browsing through selections of crystals and stones for spiritual and healing purposes, you may find yourself wondering whether you should own a natural crystal and/or stone, or polished. Is there a difference between the two and what is that difference? The only difference between these two crystals is in the simple fact that when purchasing a raw crystal, you’re purchasing it just as it was created by Mother Earth.
They are completely natural, without having anything done to it by man other than breaking it from the earth. However, many believe that the raw crystals and stones are in fact more powerful offering a higher vibrational frequency due to the fact that they are untouched and their energy has not been hindered in anyway. Raw and polished crystals and stones are equally powerful.
NATURAL CRYSTALS AND STONES VS. POLISHED CRYSTALS AND STONES
Raw and rough crystals or stones are sold in their original state that they were found in. Their look and touch is of an irregular and "rough" nature. Polished crystals and stones get their polished appearance from having been tumbled with sand and water. Both types may be used for healing, meditation, protection, spiritual practices, and can be carried in your pocket.
