’Quake rocks the chakras

A crystal healing business has been left between a rock and a hard place following an unfortunate act of God. 

Good Vibrations in Druid, North Wales, is facing a complicated insurance claim after a minor earthquake knocked over shelving units in their warehouse and destroyed thousands of pounds’ worth of stock. 

Owner Temperance Moonflower is struggling to see the funny side. 

“As a spiritualist who believes in the healing frequency of the Earth’s minerals, losing all our stock to what is essentially one big negative wobble does feel like a bit of a kick to the chakras,” she said. 

“The insurer has suggested we could sell the broken bits as smaller items but it’s not like they’re just rocks. 

“I’m trying to stay optimistic but it’s difficult when I’ve got nothing left to recharge my opal.”
