Why are Mushrooms so Popular Right Now?


I’m not really sure, but I’d like to. Yes, indeed, mushrooms have been "all the rage" these days. Spilling from hippies to mainstream tastes. It's crazy how widespread the interest in them is. I used to see them occasionally when I was out and about. I see them on T-shirts at Walmart. Whoa! What?


Much of it has to do with the fact that Psychedelic mushrooms are being accepted increasingly because of their therapeutic and recreational benefits. Not just their hallucinogenic properties. ( And this kind of parallels the mushrooming mainstream interest in gemstones over the last several years.


Glass Blown Mushrooms

Here are some pictures of simple glass-blown teardrop-shaped pendants with a small image of a mushroom inside. This is the starting point; from here, they range to extreme mind-boggling creations. But these simple mushroom pendants can quickly be made once you get the hang of it. Then, they can be strung on a cord and sold at a very affordable price. If you want to make them and sell them.

One of the exciting innovations done in the mid-1990s by a company called 7th Sense out of Long Island was taking the Fimo brand of polymer clay and creating caps that would fit over the glass teardrop shape, thus creating a natural magical combination.

While there is still a big appetite from people to buy and wear glass pendants as necklaces, the more significant thing is mushroom-shaped gemstone pendant necklaces, which rides the current and growing trend of the mainstream popularity of all kind of crystals and gemstones.


Many people buy loose pendants in all sizes: as conversation pieces to put on their coffee tables or mantel places, as something to help decorate their garden, and of course, as jewelry.


You may better understand the current interest in mushrooms when you consider that people are becoming more aware of the hallucinogenic characteristics of mushrooms and how people are becoming more appreciative of the healing and spiritual benefits of gemstones. As local laws around the country are becoming more flexible, the use of magic mushrooms, cannabis, etc., isn’t demonized in people's minds the way it is when it is illegal. That's just the way it is, sadly. Instead of questioning laws and trying to change things, there is subliminal programming that says something is wrong just because it's illegal. 


Gemstones can be formed into mushroom-shaped pendants using a Dremel cutting tool or other more sophisticated professional tools. It's a fun DIY project that anyone can accomplish if they want to try to make one themselves. The Dremel engraving tool is affordable, simple, and produces stunning results. If you choose gemstones with large enough surfaces to carve into, you can gradually master this art.


Research before you buy one and find the suitable stone for you. But be extra cautious if you buy them directly from China on eBay, Alibaba, or Wish. You might get a fake gemstone. Or it might be a natural stone that is man-made, basically reconstituted stone from little ground-up pieces. Or it could maybe be a low synthetic-grade glass or plastic/resin material.   While looking around, some cool glow-in-the-dark luminous carved mushroom pendants made from quartz crystals are pretty cool. Good luck!
