Find the Crystal that Speaks to You

Terril Bates, owner of That Crystal Place, in Daytona Beach, passionately believes that crystals have immense energetic powers. “Crystals may be a part of your life as beauty, as art, as healers, as balance. Crystals can be a source of strength, calmness, lovingness or meditation. The uses and energies are endless. We are committed to sourcing high-quality crystal samples for discerning collectors and for those who are just beginning a collection,” she says.

According to Bates, crystals have been in use as far back as Old Testament biblical recordings. “Natural crystals occur within the core of the earth and are mined. They reach us in various forms, sizes, colors and shapes,” she explains. “One commonality is that they contain, absorb and emit energy. This is a natural attribute that is associated with their connection to the earth itself. Just as we and all other elements of life have a certain energy, so do crystals.”

That Crystal Place offers unique varieties of crystals ranging from small handheld specimens to full-size accent tables. Gift items, including crystal wine stoppers and coasters, are just a few of the beautiful selections. “For the crystal collector, large amethyst and citrine geodes, quartz, amethyst and agate points are here for you to ‘find,’” assures Bates.

The findings at That Crystal Place also include handmade necklaces and bracelets. These items are designed by Bates and represent a range of attributes, colors, lengths and styles. Each is unique.

Those visiting That Crystal Place will also find a collection of crystal skulls. Bates became aware of the association between bikers and skulls and the interesting story about how this connection came to be. She began carrying crystal skulls during bike week in 2018. Bikers are welcome to stop in and see the new crystal skull collection.
