Most questions asked when using a pendulum have Yes or No answers. You must determine the direction your pendulum will take for Yes and for No.
Take the knot of the string of the pendulum between your thumb and middle finger. With the other hand – touch the point/bobber to steady its motion.
Keep your eyes on the point.
Now address the pendulum and say, “Show me ‘Yes’.” It will soon swing in one direction, which could be side to side or back and forth.
Now say, “Show me No.” It should swing in the opposite direction.
Usually, a pendulum will move in circles when the answer is (yet) unclear or not to be answered.

Our mission: Sustainable Sourcing
At House of Formlab we always try to source our crystals in an ethically minded way. We only choose high-quality pieces and work with trusted and reputable suppliers who also take ethics in the crystal supply chain very seriously.
Many of our suppliers buy directly from the mines and they undertake regular site visits during buying trips to ensure working conditions and low impact environmental protections are as claimed. None of our suppliers knowingly buy from mines with any child labour, poor or dangerous working conditions. Certain countries are known for dubious practices and we avoid sourcing from those regions.
Often crystals are not what the miners are digging for. More often than not they are byproducts found alongside more valuable elements such as are used in our mobile phones and TVs. This makes supply chains complicated but where we can we avoid minerals and crystals known to come from this type of operation.
Certificates are often hard to come by. There is still no overarching governing body which certifies crystals in the same way as diamonds are now tracked and certified – mainly due to the difference in value. The more outcry there is, the more chance is idea will gain traction. So keep asking and campaigning for ethically sourced crystals and together we can change the crystal universe.
Buying crystals is a learning process. We will make mistakes, everyone does, but rest assured we are trying our best to make the right choices and provide you with the crystal you can be proud of.
