Happy New Year!
Greetings and a happy 2018,
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is enjoying all of your new treasures. Several old crystal friends we've had in the store for a while found new homes this year. I love that these crystals are going to new homes, but it's hard letting go of some.

We will be leaving for Tucson in two weeks so be sure to get any special request in and start manifesting! This will be our first year as a vendor at the International Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Show. This year Robert will be selling over 5,000 pounds of 20 different types of agates. Amanda and I will be shopping for over 21 days to fill the store with new inventory and find what's new. Michael will be shopping for a week so share any special jewelry request with him soon.

I got a most amazing surprise from the Nature's Treasures staff. What a sight to behold! The mineral reproduction in this cake by Christy Seguin owner of Cakes Rock is unbelievable.          

 
Welcome 2018 with open arms and remember that now is the time to start all those new beginnings you listed last month to accomplish this year. Don't be surprised if they tend to enter your life whether you plan them or not.

 

Blessings to all,
Karen and the staff

NATURE'S TREASURES PRESENTS:
AN INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION OF AGATE
Hosted by Nature's Treasures at The Norris Center

Coming to Austin - Summer 2019

Check it out on Facebook!

Austin Agates Exclusive


 
Island Agate, $30/lb
 
From the South Pacific near Indonesia.
Rough nodule and polished halves. 
 
A Note on Agates:  
Silica is the key component to agate formation since it belongs to the quartz family made up of SiO2.  Because of their beauty and durability, agates have been used since the Neolithic as tools, jewelry, tableware and decor for thousands of years. Although agate has been used for ages, new world agates have only been mined recently and many varieties are mined out.
 

The Treasure Tome:
A Trove of Knowledge


2018: Purple Rain! Purple Rain!
by Folade Speaks  
 
The Pantone color for 2018 was announced, and it struck me as interesting considering the increased focus on spirituality and attention to Soul growth in 2017. As the meme that's been floating around points out, these three years are proving to be a chrysalis for many: "2016: The Caterpillar ~ 2017: The Cocoon ~2018: The Butterfly." As we crawl from accepting old belief systems that no longer serve us, and fly into our authentic Soul callings, it is alluring to me that the color for 2018 is violet!
 
I am thinking about Amethyst, Super 7, The Violet Flame, The Sahasrara/Crown Chakra. I am thinking of Lepidolite, the nutritional value of purple vegetables and fruits. I am remembering purple jams and beets delicately poured into canning jars and packed tightly in our basement to nurture us through winters. I am meditating with  lavender, and the magic of wisteria.  This color known as royal, its saffron crocus, the color of the doors of witches, the beauty of clematis and irises. I am thinking of the violet that hugs flames of a crackling fire- how long the eye wants to rest there. How healing- the color purple!
But if I take a step back in daydreaming up all the violet things I can think of, back to the Pantone, this leads us to how significantly 2018 is tied to mysticism, spirituality, and honoring our Crown chakra!
 
I don't think it's coincidence! I wish you a purposeful 2018, and I offer you some crystal recommendations; Here are the purple bones of Mother Nature, and how their powers can assist you  in 2018!
 
Read the whole article and see which crystals and minerals have 2018 properties.

Garnet

Garnet is also known for its utilization of creative energy. It grounds spirit forces within the body and helps in the ability to work lovingly on the physical plane.Yet Garnet is a sensual stone. It represents primordial fire, the creation of the world out of chaos, purification and love. It is a stone of strong, intense feelings.

Garnet is said to have been one of the twelve stones in the Breastplate of the High Priest, and has been used as a sacred stone by the Native American Indians, the South American Indians, the Aztecs, the African tribal elders, and the Mayans. It acts with speed to expand one's awareness due to the flash of lightening contained within, and enhances one's internal fire to bring creative powers to implementation.
