Crystal Hack: Crystals that just won't stand up! Fixed!

We've all had those crystal pieces that just BARELY won't stand up on their side, but you don't want to have the look of an actual stand.  Or even those cute little pieces that you aren't quite sure how to display them other than just having them lay there on their side.  Here is a crystal industry trick for you!!  And probably a life hack in general HAHA.

EARTHQUAKE PUTTY!  Seriously.  This little white putty works for so many things in crystal world, but most importantly, you can use it to help crystal babies stand up.  And for less than $6 for a crap ton of it, skies the limit my friends!  Well, of course weight is actually your limit. : )

All you have to do is use the putty to create a little 'stand' for the pieces that just don't want to completely stay up.  Here are some shots of how I got this little white apophyllite to stand up.

I found it on Amazon, but I'm sure you can find it more places as well.  But it is linked here if you want to grab some for yourself.  Of course sometimes you have to breakdown and use a stand.  I'm working on getting more up in the shop, and more to come soon!
