Default Finding your own crystals

In my walks around the forests here, I often leave offerings for the nature spirits/fae, including crystals, herbs from my garden silver, and food. (If I don't have anything with me, I just offer a prayer). But I also occasionally find crystals too, one large on which forms the centre of my faerie shrine outdoors, and one I found smack in the middle of one of our favorite trails, and I use as a little wand. I know a fair but abut the flora and fauna around here, but substantially less about the rocks. So this morning I was intrigued to read this - we have fallen trees all over everywhere here:

I will keep my eyes open for this in future! Has anyone here found crystals under trees? Or anywhere?

makes sense, i always go looking for shells whenever they let the dam out, do construction near the river bed, or after flood water has receded for the same sort of reasons. The dirt is easier to dig through and you usually dont have to go too deep from everything being recently shifted around.

We're lucky here, as it's all glacial till. So you find all sorts of "out of place" finds.

Must get a camera and post a few... :/

I look forward to that - and to viewing our many fallen cedars as a possible new source of forest treasure.
