Crystal Castle’s ‘managing dreamer’ Naren King officially unveiled what he says are the tallest crystals in the known world last week.
Estimated to be 120 million years old, the pair of crystals stand 5.3 metres tall and weigh 19 tonnes.
Their installation also marks the Crystal Castle’s 30th anniversary, and they join what is already the largest outdoor display of crystals in the world.
‘Our intention is to provide a place where people can feel awe and reverence, where they remember that they are a part of nature,’ Mr King said.
‘We see them as a beacon of hope.
‘They are a human charging station. Everybody is welcome to come and stand in between them to be recharged. The energies are immensely powerful.
Mr King said not only were they the world’s tallest crystals, they were also unique due to their make up.
‘If they were the size of my hand they would still be among the rarest crystals ever seen,’ Mr King said.
He said five different crystals make up the geode – smoky quartz, amethyst, clear quartz, calcite and agate.
‘I’ve never seen anything like it in thirty years of collecting crystals,’ he said.
The crystals were brought from Uruguay.
