Recently, Anne Louise Magazine was privileged to unbox and review two enchanting pieces from Xander Kostroma – a suncatcher and a necklace.

Unveiling the Suncatcher: A Dance of Light and Crystal

The unboxing experience began with the Xander Kostroma Raw Quartz Crystal Window Suncatcher, a piece that immediately caught the eye with its beautiful raw beauty. As sunlight streamed through the windows, the suncatcher transformed the room into a kaleidoscope of colors, casting a mesmerising dance of light across the space. Each raw quartz crystal was meticulously chosen, showcasing its unique formations and textures, creating a beautiful and organic suncatcher.

What sets Xander Kostroma’s suncatcher apart is not just its aesthetic appeal but also its ability to infuse any environment with positive energy. As the crystals refracted sunlight, it seemed as if the room itself had an uplifting ambiance that resonated with a sense of tranquility. Raw quartz crystals are known for their ability to purify and amplify energy, making this suncatcher a radiant addition to any space.

Adorning Elegance: The Xander Kostroma Rose Quartz Stone Necklace

Moving on to the crystal necklace, the Long Length Rose Quartz Stone Necklace with Gold Tone was stunning to say the least. The rose quartz, with its soft pink hue, symbolises love and compassion, creating a harmonious blend of sophistication with a touch of the mystical.

The necklace is more than an accessory; it is a statement. The rose quartz stones, catching the light with every movement, added a subtle sparkle that effortlessly complemented any ensemble. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, rose quartz is known for promoting love, self-love, and emotional healing, making this necklace not only a fashion statement but a source of positive energy.

As I explored the bag further, I appreciated its medium weight, striking the perfect balance between sturdiness and portability.

I couldn’t help but admire the bag’s versatility. It’s not just a fashion statement; it’s a practical companion for daily life.
