Andrew Pacholyk, NY’s Mayor, and Crystals

The Guardian (June 2022)  A special “thank you” to reporter Kari Paul of The Guardian for writing this great article about Mayor Adams of New York City and his love of crystals! The article is an “ode to New York” and the special energy it has!  Thanks in part, to crystals under Manhattan?  A fun read!

“The mayor is right about one thing, says Andrew Pacholyk, a New York-based crystal expert: the city, indeed, is seated on unique bedrock that has been known to produce more than 100 varieties of mineral. Called the Manhattan schist, it was formed about 450m years ago in a collision between what is now the east coast of North America and the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.

So what effect might crystals be having on the lives of New Yorkers? Pacholyk is vague on specifics but believes that certain areas in Manhattan do have a “special energy” owing to the unique mix of minerals found there – including quartz, kyanite, and dumortierite. He says it can be felt more strongly in natural areas with exposed rock, like Central Park.”…

 “People flock to New York to find their tribe and purpose, and to follow their dreams. That’s why people are drawn to this place.”
