Instagram has become an incredible tool for gem lovers, sellers and collectors alike! With millions of images at the click of a #hashtag, it's never been easier to source crystals or sneak a peak at user's collections for inspiration. Here's my roundup of top instagram accounts that every crystal lover needs to be following.
Let's start this off with Australia's very own Patrick Gundersen. If you're not already following this guy you need to fix that pronto. Patrick posts photos of his crystal hunting adventures along with his incredible finds so that we can live vicariously through him (while we're at our day jobs).
Proper gems. Where all of your tourmaline dreams come true. D.Morrison shows off one of the most beautiful tourmaline collections we have ever seen, with pieces that most of us might never have the chance to see with our own bulging, envious eyes. #jelly
