Welcome to our Cornish Online Crystal Shop
Hi, we're Beth & Graham Holtum, and this is the online store for our crystal shop, Rainbow Spirit, in Wadebridge, North Cornwall. We ship worldwide from our high street crystal shop, where we've a large range of minerals and gems for sale for the collector and healer alike. We also have a wide collection of UK mineral specimens, especially Cornish.
We have products for crystal healing for sale - like crystal balls, quartz points, crystal wands -as well as gemstone jewellery, & ready-made picture frames by Picture Framing Cornwall . We're proud of our Cornish crystalsl,and have 4 cabinets dedicated to Cornish minerals specimens.
We think that people buy from us, and keep returning, because we handpick the crystals and jewellery, with an eye for detail as well as beauty, and that we cleanse all our crystals with the Crystal Singing Bowls in our Healing Room with the intent that they are free from negative energies and vibrating with their natural beauty.

Both services take 3-5 days within the UK, and 7-10 days to fly abroad. There is no tracking number for standard mail, so we can't be as helpful if there is a delay in you receiving your parcel.

Choosing a Crystal for its Healing Properties
The basis of crystal healing, as we see it, is that crystals can be employed as external vitimins to work on a vibrational level in boosting and supporting our natural defence and well-being systems. We aim to guide you through the vast range of knowledge and clinical experience that we have learnt of and has been written about in the many books on the subject.
There are various methods, or approaches you can take. For example, by looking at the condition from a Chakra point of view, or maybe the elements. Many people opt for selecting from the relevant Birthstones. We're continually adding to our online library of information, hoping to provide you with all the help we're able to give if you're in the shop chatting to us.
There's a table of common complaints with a list of crystal suggestions, and a guide to using crystals around the home in our Healing Properties of Crystals page.
When choosing a crystal to for its healing properties, we suggest that you consider the person holistically. Evaluate their condition from a mental, emotional and physical perspective. We don't aim to treat the symptoms, but see them as expressions of a central disturbance in the vitality of the person. So ask for more detail about the condition and what lies behind it. For example, depression can be as a result of guilt, grief, loss of control, lack of freedom, etc.
It can help if you look at the current complaint or circumstance from different angles:
- How have they changed as a result?
- Has it affected their sleep, mood, appetite, temperature?
- What aspects are concomitant – happen at the same time and in direct relation to the ailment?
- What is their normal disposition? Can you perceive what aspect or chakra is out of balance?
Aim to decide upon at least three clear symptoms to base your prescription upon. Think of it as a 3-legged stool, any less and you can’t rest your case on it!
Once you've got a clear understanding of the person's state, and have decided upon the three key aspects that you want to match, then it is much easier to read more about each crystal without sensing that all have properties that will help!
We're working to build an all singing and dancing Crystal Selector that helps you identify the most helpful crystal from three key symptoms, but for now, it's a clever little tool to help you select from our increasing large range of stock based on a limited range of their properties.
The information we provide is based on our training, reading and clinical experience. It is offered for interest and as a guide. It should not be taken as an alternative to seeking professional medical advice. Always consult a GP if you have symptoms that persist or worry you.

What our customers say about us
Rainbow Spirit Crystal Shop has now had an online store for over four years, and in that time we've had some great feedback that we'd like to share with you. We always do our best to hand pick jewellery and crystals with the same care as if we were choosing them for ourselves, and pack and post them securely so they arrive in perfect condition - so it's great to hear that we're doing it right:
Salt Rock Lamps & Lights
Salt Rock lamps and t-light holders are hand crafted from huge deposits of crystallised salt from Himalayan mines. Each piece has its own unique colouring and character.
CRYSTAL HEALING SIGNIFICANCE: Halite is the mineral name for salt crystal and it is valued by crystal healers for manifesting self-love, blending the energies of the heart and solar-plexus chakras. This is useful for someone who needs to find time for their physical and spiritual well being.
PHYSICAL BENEFITS: The gentle heat of a Salt light generates ions carrying a negative charge, improving the surrounding air and general health and well-being. It’s a similar atmosphere to standing next to a water fall or by the sea, giving good breathing space for relaxation, and particularly beneficial for asthma or rheumatism.
CARE OF YOUR SALT LAMP OR T-LIGHT: Salt has hygroscopic properties, and therefore it draws water—so never wash or wet your salt light and don’t keep it in a damp room or outdoors. If the light does gain moisture it may form crystals, which can be removed with a soft brush, or it may puddle. To avoid this, have it alight regularly so that it is maintained by dry heat.
We have many other crystals that have been shaped to hold tea light candles in the Rainbow Spirit shop. Beds of Amethyst points give a purple light and are associated with relief from stress or anxiety. Rose Quartz is ideal for the heart of the home with its pink glow and association with peace, love and harmony. Satin Spar Selenite grows in thin white strands that look like fibre optics, drawing light along their length. Visit us in Wadebrige to see the range.
