For centuries, crystals have stood as a cornerstone within the realm of Feng Shui. From pioneering Feng Shui masters who utilised them to counter the shifting Water Stars, to contemporary practitioners who harness their timeless energy, crystals have long since been revered for their Feng Shui properties.
Today, crystals are typically classified into two categories: artificial and natural. Artificial crystals are often lab-cultivated or treated, produced from composites of oxides, silicates and other minerals. On the other hand, genuine crystals developed naturally over centuries within the Earth.
A well-cited principle in Imperial Feng Shui, “山管人丁，水管财”, espouses the importance of activating the Water stars in our living and working environments.
The Water Stars, present in our living and working environments, play a pivotal role in ushering in wealth and prosperity. When activated by Imperial Harvest Crystals, these stars significantly enhance the auspicious energies in their respective spaces, bestowing their owners with abundant opportunities, wealth and prosperity.
During the Qing dynasty, Imperial Feng Shui masters confronted the challenge of reorienting imperial complexes every 20 years as the Feng Shui periods changed, which proved financially impractical. In response, they developed a practical and innovative solution to harness the auspicious qualities of auspicious water landforms. This innovative solution was Imperial Harvest-grade crystals, installed at specific points across the imperial palace, thereby ushering in positive energies.
Following the principles of Imperial Feng Shui, individuals can activate the water star within their homes and workplaces using Imperial Harvest Crystals, the same calibre of crystals once favoured by Emperor Qian Long. Properly placed in the wealth sectors of homes, offices and retail spaces, these crystals empower their occupants with boundless wealth and prosperity, helping them overcome obstacles and establishing them as influential figures within their respective industries.
Imperial Harvest exclusively sources and utilises untreated natural crystals to ensure the unparalleled depth of their Imperial Feng Shui attributes. To maintain the quality of all Imperial Harvest Crystals, we adhere to strict quality control standards — a testament to our commitment to utmost quality.
The clarity of an Imperial Harvest-grade crystal refers to its degree of transparency, with its grading dependent on impurities, inclusions or imperfections inherent in each naturally occurring crystal.
Imperial Harvest-grade crystals are judged against current gemological standards, with their clarity aligning strictly with guidelines set by official authorities, such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
The clarity of an Imperial Harvest crystal can be classified into three quality levels:
These tiers represent the top three grades of crystal clarity globally. Only crystals certified as such as considered deserving of the Imperial Harvest name.
Imperial Harvest-grade crystals remain entirely natural, free from any artificial treatments to eliminate imperfections or alter their colour.
Naturally occurring coloured crystals are exceptional, with just one in every 10,000 crystals displaying these natural hues. These coloured crystals are evaluated using a distinct colour scale, where the intensity of the colour directly correlates with the crystal’s rarity and value.
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) colour scale is the industry standard for grading crystal colour. This chart comprises six categories, with colour grades ranging from completely colourless to light in hue. Crystals rated D are devoid of colour and exceedingly rare, whereas those rated F and G are considered nearly colourless. On the other hand, Z-graded crystals feature the most prevalent light yellow or brownish tint.
Clear quartz is naturally colourless and transparent, a result of its growth with minimal or no contact with its host rock. Most clear quartz crystals available in the commercial market tend to be tainted with impurities and faint traces of colour, often due to artificial treatments aimed at introducing colour to the crystal.
Imperial Harvest’s carefully selected crystal collection exclusively includes clear quartz sourced from the top 1% of crystals. This meticulous curation ensures the preservation of the crystal’s natural beauty and clarity.
Smoky Quartz derives its signature smoky brown colour from the natural irradiation of silicon dioxide. A significant majority (99.5%) of smoky quartz crystals tend to be either opaque or partially translucent. In contrast, Imperial Harvest’s collection features highly translucent smoky quartz crystals, setting them apart from the typical smoky quartz available in the market.
Imperial Harvest’s Rose Quartz crystals obtain their distinctive rosy pink hues from trace amounts of naturally occurring titanium, iron, and manganese. Highly coveted and sought after worldwide, authentic rose quartz makes up less than 5% of the world’s naturally occurring crystals, elevating Imperial Harvest-grade rose quartz to a coveted status.
Imperial Harvest’s latest Red Phoenix Mountain collection showcases a specific variety of rose quartz—the Unheated Fancy Vivid Pink Rose Quartz. This particular gemstone stands out among precious stones due to its extraordinary rarity, captivating beauty, and charismatic rosy-pink tones. Notably, Imperial Harvest’s Unheated Fancy Vivid Pink Rose Quartz undergoes no heat treatment, preserving its natural colour and purity.
Rutilated Quartz showcases natural, needle-like inclusions of rutile, a naturally occurring mineral. Rutilated Quartz showcases natural, needle-like inclusions of rutile, a naturally occurring mineral. These inclusions can manifest in silver, copper red, or deep black tones, with the rarest exhibiting a golden hue. In Imperial Harvest’s crystal collections, only fully rutilated quartz, representing the highest quality, is featured.
Citrine stands out as one of the rarest crystals, naturally occurring in only a handful of countries worldwide. Research indicates that 97% of available citrine crystals undergo heat or colour treatments. In contrast, Imperial Harvest’s collection features all-natural citrine crystals, obtaining their vibrant yellow hue from the inherent ferric minerals present in the quartz crystals.
In the realm of exquisite craftsmanship, the Imperial Harvest Crystal collections emerge as luminous symbols of unwavering dedication. Across the diverse range of collections, Imperial Harvest Crystals embody years of meticulous research, showcasing an exquisite fusion of artistry and opulence.
A defining aspect of any Imperial Harvest-grade crystal lies in its cut, influencing its visual appeal and strategic significance. The intricate carving and meticulous polishing techniques, skillfully executed by master artisans, unveil the inherent luminosity of each gemstone. These crystals serve as tangible manifestations of exceptional skill and dedication, transformed into masterpieces seamlessly blending artistic brilliance with the principles of Imperial Feng Shui.
Deeply grounded in the principles of Imperial Feng Shui, each Imperial Harvest crystal not only emanates timeless beauty but also serves as a constant reminder of an individual’s potential to flourish. They stand as emblems of unwavering journeys towards enduring prosperity, harmonising with the profound principles of Imperial Feng Shui.
