Crystals have been having their moment for the last few years in the broader culture. They’d been a huge part of centuries of spiritual and healing practices around the world, but they’ve more recently found their way into the mainstream in America. There’s no real easy place to point to this happening, though more and more people are finding themselves picking up various crystals for comfort, for healing, and their own spiritual journeys. For some, the love of crystals is purely aesthetic, too. Whatever the reason, it’s hard to resist the pull of wanting a set or two of beautiful and unique crystal bookends for your shelves.
Find below 20 incredible sets of crystal bookends. It’s always worth double-checking the listings for crystal bookends if you’re in the market—some can be small, while others might be surprisingly big and take up more space than anticipated (though maybe that’s not necessarily a bad thing, since you can hold up more books). You’ll also want to decide between natural gems and polished gems—one will have raw edges and appear “imperfect,” while the other will be smoothed. Of course, “imperfect” here is simply because they haven’t been shaped by human hands.
One thing that’s certain is that any stone bookends will be nice and heavy.
