June 2022
Happy Summer!

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart we had to say goodbye to one of our Nature’s Treasures family members this month. From our early beginnings Robert and I worked side by side to grow and make my dream and ideas for Nature’s Treasures grow. He was an intricate part of our Rock Depot growth and traveled with us on many rock buying excursions. He was instrumental in establishing and growing our Agate presence in the world and I know he will be greatly missed by all. Please review our memorial info below to see how we are continuing to honor his love for agates and our love for him.

July 1st will be the 182nd day of 2022, making it directly half way through this year.
How are you doing so far? The 4th of July, aka America’s Birthday, is July’s official national holiday celebrated to recognizing our unified independence from the British with the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. The American Revolution started in 1775 and when possible folks would celebrate our independence each year on July 4. In 1870 Congress voted to officially declare July 4 as a national holiday and it became a paid holiday in 1941.

There are “holidays” and recognition titles for virtually every day of the year. This month, a couple of the more obscure days growing in awareness surely would include July 2, World UFO Day and July 17, World Emoji Day. In 2001, World UFO Day was started on July 2, in recognition of the crash day in Roswell in 1947. Washington seems to have the most reported officiated sightings followed by Alaska, Oregon and Montana on the west coast, and Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire on the east coast. World Emoji Day was created in 2014 buy the founder of Emojipedia. He chose July 17 honoring the date used on his calendar emoji. (Go ahead, go look). This is also the date Apple chooses every year to release their new emojis.

This month we will be sharing our treasures outside of the store at the San Antonio Healing Arts Festival & Market in San Antonio and the Austin Metaphysical and Holistic Life Expo here in Austin. If you’re in the neighborhood come by and say 'hi'. Also, a casual reminder of the Austin Gem & Mineral Society’s First Saturday Meetup. See below for more details about these events. Our online store has been super busy filling all the extra orders for our new gold vermeil designs in our new Summer Jewelry Drop. If you haven’t checked out this line yet, then you’re missing out. These designs are a great way to add long lasting, gold-over-sterling silver pieces to your crystal jewelry collection in prices everyone can afford.

With Robert’s passing I found myself reflecting on our own personal life cycle. There is a beginning with birth and an end with death but it’s the in-between we are responsible for. We are given tools to help maneuver through life with, but the manuals carrying this valuable information seem to be few and far between. It seems we tend to think that the ways to succeed in life have to be harder than they are and forget during tough times that we are the ones really holding the keys and the answers. No one knows exactly how long their life cycle is but through the use of tools such as manifestation and having nature in your life we can better realize our own personal power while riding that life cycle.❤️
Please everyone, continue to stay safe and healthy.

In Loving Memory...Robert Cooper
Robert Cooper (May 11, -June 14, 2022) did many things with his life before joining the Nature's Treasures family. In addition to being husband, father, and grandfather, Robert was also a landscaper, professional golfer, Corvette aficionado, and animal lover. He began working as the Nature's Treasures Lapidary Specialist and Buyer in 2012 with a focus on cutting and polishing agates for the store to sell to collectors. One of the world's top 10 agate polishers, Robert has passed on much of his skills and knowledge to the Rock Depot Assistant Manager, Justin Broussard.

Because of Robert's passion for and connections in the agate community, Nature's Treasures hosted the International Exposition of Agates in June 2019. This internationally attended event historically only happened once every 4 years and changed location each time, but to try and build awareness and interest in agates, Robert convinced the committee to attempt having it every 3 years instead. With Robert at the helm, Nature's Treasures brought together agate experts, enthusiasts, vendors and miners from every major continent.

With each passing day we realized that there was still so much to learn from Robert, but he was confident we could carry on his legacy. Thank you to all those in the agate community who have reached out with your condolences for Robert's family. We will continue to pass them along and keep you updated on the memorial service to be held here at Nature's Treasures once Robert's final wishes are honored (likely be in August 2022). In the meantime, to honor Robert and to help minimize loss of life due to cancer, Nature's Treasures will be raising funds for The American Cancer Society. In addition to donating 20% of proceeds from Robert's birthday on May 11th and Nature's Treasures' birthday on August 8th, we will accepting private donations below.
