A student crystal collector’s posted a picture on social media of her latest purchase which looks just like a piece of fried chicken. 20-year-old Amelia Rude, who also runs a bracelet business, bought a calcium carbonate cluster from a friend for less than $30. The Indiana jewellery maker said the item immediately caught her eye. She says that despite receiving a few enquires, she’s so far had “no serious offers” for the rock, which she intends to keep for her own collection, which already consists of around 700 crystals.
