April 2022
Happy Spring!
This entire month is our Tucson Trunk Sale (look for the BALLOONS at our Event Center Entrance and read more below), but we will also be out this first weekend. Look for us at the Austin Metaphysical and Holistic Life Expo on Saturday, April 2 from 10-6 and Sunday, April 3 from 11-6 at the Norris Center, located near the corner of Burnet and Anderson Lane here in Austin. We will be showcasing some of our new inventory from the Tucson buying trip including crystals and minerals from Madagascar, Morocco, Indonesia and other exotic locations. We will also have our booth at the monthly San Antonio Healing Arts Festival & Market on Sunday April 3 from 11-6 at the Hilton Garden Inn in San Antonio. Be sure to come by our booths and say hi if you find yourself in the vicinity. We continue to support our local neighborhood nature projects through the Friends of Patterson Park and the Austin Parks Foundation.

Holidays this month start on the 1st with April Fools' Day (one of the only widely practiced holidays that no one has definite knowledge as to exactly why and when it was started) and the first day of Ramadan. World Health Day on April 7th was established when the World Health Organization was founded in 1948, designed to bring awareness internationally to specific health issues that need global attention. This year April holds the Christian observation of Jesus Christ sacrifice beginning Sunday, April 10th with Palm Sunday (the beginning of the Holy Week), followed with Good Friday on the 15th and culminating on the 17th with Easter Sunday.

The latter part of the month we call attention to our Mother Earth with Earth Day celebrated internationally on April 22nd. We celebrate and offer support by donating a percentage of our sales that day to our local Rainforest Partnership organization. Please consider choosing this day to come browse and find your must have crystal, or scroll down to our Featured Affiliate section to donate directly!

The last event to call your attention to is Arbor Day on April 29th. This holiday was officially established in 1872 with president Nixon making it a National Holiday in 1970. To honor this day please consider planting plants and a tree, also known as natures lungs, somewhere/anywhere. If you’re not feeling the green thumb vibe check out these other options for gifting and honoring people and events with a tree at some of the following web sites:

Spring has sprung! Bluebonnets and wildflowers are up and blooming showing us their majestic beauty. Now is a great time to go find a bunch of bluebonnets and take a selfie or great picture with those you love. I promise you, if you make this an annual tradition, then you will treasure the time spent time and time again.. ❤️
Please everyone, continue to stay safe and healthy.

14th Annual Tucson Trunk Show, 2019
How the Auditorium looks pre-show...
Boxes, Barrels and Pallets, Oh My!!!
Why is it called the Tucson Trunk Show?
After returning from what we thought then was a huge inventory purchase at the International Tucson Gem , Mineral, Jewelry and Fossil shows in 2006, we decided the best way to showcase all the new inventory was to have a sale designed to look like the Tucson Show . We set up tables outside and loaded them with merchandise still in flats and basically unprocessed. Originally this event was known as the Tucson Truck Sale. As the years progressed, we grew to have semi-truckloads of new goodies delivered all at one time from the annual International Gem & Jewelry Shows in Tucson, Arizona. During those times all of the crystals, minerals, statues and bulk rock would be delivered by semi-trucks to our sister company that had a loading dock before being transported to our store using a fleet of 20+ foot long moving trucks. Some of these goodies were marked with a discounted retail price when they arrived to us so we decided to called it our Tucson Truck Sale.

However, over the years, people got confused when we would advertise our Tucson Truck Sale and thought we were selling trucks (believe it or not, it's true!) and that everything in the show was on sale. Eventually, we adjusted the name to better reflect the showcasing nature of the many treasures we make available during this annual event. Now, for our Annual Tucson Trunk Sales, we have a vast number of smaller deliveries made throughout a longer time frame. After the major buying event in Tucson, we still haul back what we can, but instead of semi-truck loads, we were able to reduce our specialty buying to fit on a 24 foot long trailer brought home thanks to DG Moving Forward (seen above as we unload the trailer).

Although the name has evolved over the years, the anticipation and magnitude of this event remains as impressive as always with new jewelry, crystals, minerals, and other treasures!

Featured Agate - Well almost agate...
Blue Mountain Jasper
Blue Mountain Jasper is n the same family as quartz, agate, chert, flint and petrified wood, that is the quartz group of SiO2.

This variety is mined in eastern Oregon, Blue Mountain, Malheur County to be exact. The miner is Dale Huett and he sells the rough material to cutters like us for retail sales.

The specimen shown is about 4 pounds and 7" x 5" across the polished face.
They measured up to 59 feet long and could weigh as much as 23 tons. They are recognized mostly for their five foot tall, sail-like back structure which could possibly have helped regulate their body temperature within any environment. Much like crocodiles of today, the Spinosaurus was semiaquatic, living both on land and in the water. Their diet consisted of primarily fish and land animals. Spinosaurus teeth had a straight conical shape with no serrations. Are you biting off more than you can chew? Perhaps, harness your inner Spinosaurus (by carrying a fossilized tooth) to maintain a balance within your environment and make room for new adventures.
Meet Our Staff

Kate has lived in Austin virtually her whole life (minus a few years that she spent in Dallas for high school). Her crystal journey began not too long after visiting NT for the first time almost 4 years ago. She was immediately hooked after getting the basics (amethyst, a gem tree etc.). Now after working for Nature's Treasures for over a year, she has learned more about crystals than she ever imagined possible. Kate is studying to become an environmental scientist, so she loves everything "nature". Being in a fun and mental stimulating atmosphere like NT keeps her days filled with joy. She also loves to dance, play music, sing and expressing herself through her clothes. Speaking to customers about crystals and helping them on their own spiritual journey makes work fun. 
My favorite crystal is currently all kinds of agate. As a Gemini I need to work with my feminine and masculine energies equally, and agate allows me to do that.
