10 Ways to Decorate your Home or Office with Rocks and Minerals

Decorating your home and office with stone, rock and mineral home accents is a great way to brighten up a room and bring a little nature indoors.  Rocks and minerals come in many different shapes, sizes and colors so you are certain to find the right piece for your home or office.  Plus, every rock is unique so you always have a one-of-a-kind piece.   Here are a few tips for choosing the perfect stone, rock or mineral accessory.

  1. Decorate bookshelves and entertainment centers with rock or crystal bookends. Popular varieties include agate geode or sodalite bookends due to their deep hues of blue, purple, brown and crystal clear.
  1. Simple bowls of rough or tumbled rocks and minerals can add a bit of charm to a side table or a dining room set. Rough samples show the natural beauty of a rock or mineral crystal while tumbled stones enhance the color and shine of the specimens.
  1. Use a mineral sample, such as a large quartz or amethyst crystal, as a funky paperweight. Amethyst geodes cut into unique cylinder shapes or a heavy, rough sample of your favorite rock or mineral are both functional and beautiful.
  1. Hang agate wind chimes both indoors and outdoors for a splash of color and a bit of calming music. Agate wind chimes are often dyed in a variety of colors to compliment any décor.
  1. Create a dramatic tablescape for your next dinner party with a bold line of mineral tea light candleholders. You can find mineral candleholders made from a variety of samples such as agate, fibrous selenite, quartz, and sodalite which cover the color spectrum.
  1. Incorporate rocks and minerals into your feng shui design.  Properly placed crystals will help to bring harmony to your home. Choose from minerals such as lepidolite, which promotes peace and love or green tourmaline that is said to stimulate success and money.
  1. Cluster several rock and mineral spheres on your desk for some fun decoration and a great conversation starter.  Because every rock and mineral sample is slightly different, each sphere is unique.
  1. Mix the colors and textures of the rock types to add excitement to a room.  As you decorate your home or office choose multiple pieces that complement the current décor while adding a touch of rough color or smooth textures to your space.
  1. Decorate mirrors and doorways with mineral crystals.  Use fishing line to secure the crystals along the trim. You can often find wire wrapped crystal in rock shops or jewelry and bead stores. For stones you already own, choose a thin gauge wire from a floral supply store to wrap the crystals then hang.
  1. Use crystal key chains to dress up a boring zipper pull on a purse or backpack. This idea is more for decorating your kids’ gear than yours but they will love a crystal zipper pull made from their favorite mineral.
