Man-made and artificially created crystals and minerals come to the market from time to time. Some of these can be of use to the metaphysical world, sometimes in a healing situation; sometimes to make beautiful items such as jewelry; sometimes to enhance inner work through meditation and art. Some come about by accident (such as Gaia Stone, Zincite and Pink Lazurine); some are deliberately created (such as Siberian Glass and lab-grown precious stones). As long as this is done with purposeful intent - and NOT to deceive by purporting to be a naturally occurring mineral or crystal - these items can be used in much the same way as non-crystalline minerals such as amber and obsidian. It should however be noted that these items cannot be programmed, and do not have a Source Consciousness.
