In the intense heat of Shanghai, what would be a better choice for phantom crystal collectors other than to gather at a cool place and enjoy summer in the best way possible - with icy drinks, mystical treasures, and all those who share the same passion.

Music, cuisine, as well as crystals - 76 members were welcomed to the summer fair and together, showcased more than 300 pieces of breathtaking phantom crystals. Crystals within crystals (A unique inclusion scenario where one crystal penetrate another crystal and the two intertwines in their growth, or when a smaller crystal is engulfed by a larger crystal.) ; they are integrated, diverse, and colourful. Minerals, gas liquids, volcanic ash… these natural elements bloom within the crystals making each one unique and captivating.

Attending participants even declared jokingly that “This fair is a museum-level phantom crystal gala, some collections even exceeding what is available at the museums.” It was our pleasure to receive that compliment; we feel proud and honoured to be able to deliver such sentiments to our members.

Collectors indulge into the obsession of viewing phantom crystals due to its beauty, uniqueness, and retention properties. It is the most interesting to the eye out of all gems.

The crystals are strong enough, making it the most suitable medium for any earthly elements - from gases and liquids, to minerals, and even gems. Its clear appearance allows it to expose any inclusion 360°. Its inclusions are often vibrant, coming to life and painting a scenery of its own.

The natural formation of phantom crystals means that there is never two same pieces that are the same due to variations in its inclusions - substance, shape, size, amount, and color.

Phantom crystals are rare in nature, its limited quantity makes it a precious treasure, especially for those that are higher in quality. For most collectors, a number of collectibles do not endure the test of time through either depreciation or deterioration. Nevertheless, phantom crystals are the distinctive collectibles that endure the test of time even without much care.

The spiritual powers of phantom crystals is also a major reason for the popularity of this gem. This belief has lived as long as the discovery of crystals on earth. In Buddhism, crystals hold the power of preventing harm and providing peace to is owner. Phantom crystals are said to help in improving the health of various body organs, including the heart, lungs, duodenum, liver, gallbladder, pancreas… They are also said to be able to bring psychological serenity, good luck and opportunities.
