June 2021
Welcome Summer!
Happy June everyone! With our new buying procedures in place we’re finding pleasure in discovering new products that we didn’t know we had. That may sound strange but Covid forced us to rely on our venders to select and supply us with products they were able to stock at the time and what they thought we would want for our customers. Having new perspectives and a different set of eyes has turned out to be fun, enlightening and quite liberating. We are still processing pallets of inventory to restock those staples everyone is looking for plus discovering wonderful new treasures to share. Now, more than ever before, it’s fun to just stop in and check out all the newly stocked shelves and bins.

June’s special day observations include the celebration with reverence to the end of slavery in the United States every year on June 19th, known as Juneteenth. It seems like we just had the shortest day of the year, but our Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, also called “Midsummer” falls on June 20th this year. If you were at the North Pole on this day you would be able to enjoy 24 hours of sunlight. Not only is June 20th our Summer Solstice but also notably Father’s Day. Fathers need love and attention too so it’s kind of nice that they get the longest day of the year to enjoy a little special attention. June is also celebrated as LGBTQ Pride month, so we look forward to seeing more rainbows this month! For those who keep track of astrological energies, Mercury is in retrograde until June 22, but things could still be stormy until June 30th. Lastly remember the postponed filing deadlines for the IRS and Texas Franchise taxes are coming up soon on June 15, 2021 for all Texas residents.

With ongoing international changes in the mineral industry, we feel an obligation to share what we have learned as steps to guard against deceptive practices. Please be sure to read below about ways to guard against becoming a victim to these unorthodox marketing practices. We try to keep on top of industry trends and help educate with our online store blogs so if you haven’t been following us, be sure to check in and catch up on some great info by reviewing our past blog material.

Speaking of our Online Store, we are constantly adding more products and this month we are adding Tibetan Singing bowls and other meditation items. We will also be restocking our stone hearts and several other polished shapes online. Tourmaline has such amazing versatile working energies so we choose several different sizes and shapes including a limited selection of specialty cut base display pieces.
Please everyone, continue to stay safe and healthy.

Meet Our Staff
Merrieh F.

Merrieh was born in Milledgeville, GA. She grew up outside Austin in Leander, TX. She joined our team with a shared love of sea shells, crystals, and gems. As a hairdresser her passion to reveal others outer beauty has transformed to helping others find their inner light thru the love and healing potential from crystals. Merrieh has been promoted to the Retail Assistant Manager.

"One of my favorite stones right now is Hematoid Quartz because it is grounding and helps to balance emotions and thoughts."

Justin grew up in Leander and received two associates degrees from Austin Community College. He joined the Nature's Treasures team as part of a competition with a friend to see who could get a job in a geology-related field first. In addition to a passion for rocks, Justin loves biking and went abroad to Bosnia to bike the mountainous terrain there. You may see him in our Rock Depot as the Depot Assistant Manager, but if you're into Austin night life you might also see him around town playing in his band, Onyxyria.

"Gem Silica is my favorite rock. The best pieces look like a creek because of the Chrysocolla inclusions in a clear Chalcedony."
