June 2022
Happy Summer!
Summer is here!!! Break out the sunscreen, barbecues and water toys. Time to clear out the clutter and lighten the load so to speak….bring on the new beginnings and start settling into a pattern for this year. We’re feeling the same energy at Nature’s Treasures so excuse our mess while we rearrange and shuffle things around. Remember its getting really hot out in the Rock Yard so come prepared with your hats and water bottles when checking out all the new goodies. Time seems to get away when you’re immersed in rock energy and before you know it your dehydrated and crispy.

Many June holidays go unsung despite carrying deep meaning. For example, today, June 1, is Dinosaur Day in memoriam of some of the largest creatures to have ever walked our planet. Then on June 5 we have World Environment Day. You may not have heard much about this holiday, but I get a sense that you will more and more as the years go on. This holiday was established to bring more global awareness of how we can and need to protect our environment. It’s a day to focus, on an international level, on air pollution, climate change, the littering of our planet and all things that, as a world of people, we are not paying enough attention to. The week of June 12 starts National Flag week with June14th as the official Flag Day. Our flag and specifically this day is for recognition of the greatness of our nation and acknowledgement and thanks to all of those who help us maintain our independence.

This year June 19 shares celebratory duties with Juneteenth, certainly a new beginning for African Americans with the freedom from slavery in 1865, and Father's Day, a beginning to a new life with the blessings of fatherhood. The first Father's Day celebration was documented on June 19,1910, and then in 1966 President Johnson proclaimed the 3rd Sunday in June to be celebrated as Father's Day. President Nixon made it a law in 1972 keeping Father’s Day permanent.

Summer's official beginning for the year starts this month on June 21 at 5:14 AM ET with our Summer Solstice. With the North Pole tilted the farthest from the sun on this day you’ll have the longest time of daylight of the year to accomplish all you can on this day. The next day, June 22 , is acknowledged as World Rainforest Day. On this day we celebrate with our affiliate Rainforest Partnership and encourage all to participate with us as we donate a portion of our proceeds from the day to this global cause.

Our online store has restocked your favorite incense fragrances and Sun’s Eye Oil, as well as, added popular polished quartz stand-ups in a variety of sizes. Everyone has been going crazy over our rough Rose Quartz from Brazil, so the online store is adding some excellent rough Rose Quartz from Madagascar! This Rose Quartz rough is very lustrous with great color, minimal inclusions and does not fade in the sunlight. It will be available in several different sizes so watch for our postings. They are also excited about offering some incredible Rose Quartz spheres that will be online soon.

Hope everyone weathered the fractal energy of the Lunar Eclipse okay. I'm sure everyone cheering on Mercury as it goes direct this month on June 2. That long day of summer solstice energy we’re going to have on June 21 carries with it an opportunity - a window of time to do some important self reflection. Carve out some time on this day to think about what all you have achieved and how far you’ve come, then think about where you want to go. It doesn’t matter who you are, or how old you are, do this for yourself and your own personal growth. This is a powerful manifestation time.❤️
Please everyone, continue to stay safe and healthy.

It's An Agate Thing! June 1-30!
Agate Origins
Agates are rocks composed of layers of crypto-crystalline quartz called Chalcedony. The name Agate dates back to 400-300 BCE, when Theophrastus described such rocks being found along the Achates River in Italy. The name Achate or Acate slowly transformed in the Agate we use today. Just as the term Agate was derived from a locality, so too do many different Agates derive their specific names from the places they are mined...

Because unique localities produce unique Agates, there is an endless list of names for these rocks. Yet, despite the fact that Agates have been used as adornments since before 3000 BCE, many of them lack significant, specific write-ups on metaphysical properties. Although many Agate collectors began strictly seeking after their unique beauty and in some cases rarity, many others have begun to take an interest in the more ethereal aspects of these stones. For this reason, Nature's Treasures is happy to announce the launch of an exclusive, informative Agate Newsletter geared towards blending scientific, lapidarian and metaphysical knowledge; each newsletter will focus on a specific agate (or two).

Simply click HERE to take your first step through A Gateway into the Mineral Kingdom and be added to the list to receive this quarterly exclusive!
Island Agates

Although the exact location of Island Agates is a well-guarded secret, we know they come from the island of Madagascar. This mysterious Agate will be the first feature in our Everything Agates Newsletter.

Stay Tuned!
Celebrating Agates and Father's Day...
Robert Cooper is one of the foremost knowledgeable individuals in the world when it comes to his passion, Agates. He is among the top 10 lapidaries known in the world for polishing Agates, and we are proud to have worked with and learned from him for over 10 years.

In honor of Father's Day this month, we would like to declare Robert the Nature's Treasures Father of Agates and will be offering 20% off all bulk Agates available in the Rock Depot and Rock Yard as well as all Agate Bookends in the Retail Showroom, June 1st through June 30th. Also, keep an eye out for the 1st Edition of Everything Agates later this month!
If you're in town on the fourth Thursday of the month, join us at the Austin Gem and Mineral Society Clubhouse where our geology specialist, Michael Kallstrom, and Agate specialist, Robert Cooper, will be presenting on agate genesis and formation.

This area became popular several years ago when it showed up at the Munich Gem Show in Germany.

It has become one of the fastest growing agate sites on the market. These new fields have really helped to stabilize the supplies of rough material available.
