According to a recent permit filing, Crystal Lounge will open its doors in the Pike Place Market area at 2018 1st Avenue.
A representative of Crystal Lounge was not immediately available for commentary upon What Now Seattle’s request.
While an official opening date and what Crystal Lounge plans to offer have not yet been released, according to the permit filing, Crystal Lounge will provide a snack bar option.
Crystal Lounge will be opening under Crystallography Gems LLC, with the owner of both businesses being Michelle Ferris.
According to the “about us” section of the Crystallography Gems website, “Our story is rooted in a passion for crystals, for bringing these tools into my life, and the lives of my loved ones. This shop wouldn’t be where it is today without an incredible number of volunteers, friends, and employees over the years who have helped me turn my vision into something tangible and real. Though this is my baby, it has taken a village. And still does.”
“Originally, it was a very small setup. I started with vending tiny art fairs, bringing my booth to music events, and other seemingly random places. Soon after, I started vending rock and gem shows and music festivals. Though I loved being surrounded by crystals and other rock and gem-loving people, I found the energy at some of the shows to be stifling and set in old ways.”
“Discontent with those experiences, I brought together my own creative vision and began hosting my own small shows, and it wasn’t long after that I was throwing massive 20 to 180+ vendor events, with live painters, healers, music, crafts, and a multitude of rock and gem vendors. My crew and I were throwing events all over the Northwest with our massive traveling booth before COVID forced Crystallography Gems – and the world – to figure out new ways to do things.”
“Early on, it was clear that very few crystal dealers carried the kind of high-vibrational crystals that I enjoyed most. It was my passion for crystal healing properties that drove me to carry the high-vibration crystals that are at the core of my business.”
“Almost all our crystals are chosen individually by me and selected for energetic clarity, quality, and affordability. I utilize my skills and expertise in the field, as well as my intuition and extrasensory information (the “Clairs”). My crystals are sourced through long-time vendors and direct mines when possible so that I can pass those savings on to you.”
“That said, I also work hard to ensure that I am sourcing from vendors and mines that operate ethically and as sustainably as possible. As a huge proponent of energetic healing on a personal and collective level, and as a creator of safe spaces, I am very aware of the energy of exploitation and do my utmost to avoid it,” the company website states.
