Happy Halloween!
We're back from Denver and in the throes of trying to process all the  treasures we brought home in time for our Annual Denver Trunk Sale, October 12-15. The Denver Int'l Mineral & Fossil Show continues to grow each year as does our inventory purchases. We were anticipating Denver would be cooler than Austin but there was record breaking heat while there and, in that high altitude, it sure felt hotter than Austin. Later this week be sure to watch for our email detailing all the inventory we found and the treasures that will be available at our upcoming Denver Trunk Show.

October is destined to be a very busy month for us again this year. In addition to our Trunk Show, we'll be participating in at least three other events this month including the Metaphysical Fair, the Austin Gem & Mineral Show in Austin, and Fossilmania in Glen Rose, Texas. Check out the listings below for more details and show dates. Be sure to come by our booth and say "Hi" when attending these events.

Wishing everyone a safe and fun-filled Halloween. Come visit us in costume and receive a special discount on your purchases. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays at Nature's Treasures, so expect to be entertained by our creative costumes.



Blessings,
Karen Richards & The Staff

Nature's Treasures is a local, woman-owned business that supports young women seeking a new start via Girl Forward, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping refugees succeed after escaping the turmoil in their own countries.  We happily donated a large quartz cluster and rose quartz rough for positive growth and emotional and spiritual healing to the local Girl Forward space here in Austin, Texas.

The Treasure Tome: 
A Trove of Knowledge

  
Negative Entropic Quartz Crystals. What are they?
Karen Richards
  
There's a buzz phrase in the world of crystal healing...Negative Entropic Quartz. There are a number of different types of quartz crystals differentiated by mineral content and formation such as Generator crystals, Transmitters, Channelers and Elestials among other Master Crystals. Each formation generates a different energy and specializes in working with various human elements. Information about this quartz energy is being channeled and received called Negative Entropic.
  
So what is Negative Entropic Quartz? The crystals can be found in a quartz vein from Mt Ida, Arkansas all the way up to Brokenbow, Oklahoma. Some time during their growth history they were traumatized so severely that several fractures occurred within the typical structure which gives them a "sparkly" appearance. Some say they appear to be of the stars, reflecting the light of the universe. The clusters have a "sugary" coating of smaller crystals, which continue to generate new crystal growth. Some clusters have a small dark nodule on the underneath side. These nodules seem to contain "source energy" and are the crystals that tend to have most of the "sugary" crystals attached. They don't appear to be the most beautiful crystal formations and are more "utilitarian "in their purpose--but power packs they are.
  
In addition, Negative Entropic clusters will usually have a greater amount of re-healed crystals (due to all that trauma) plus several double terminated crystals in the grouping. A double terminated crystal encourages energy to flow both ways. Some clusters will also have crystals that have a very rare and unique 2 or 3-sided Isis formation. The Isis formation is known for producing goddess energy and emotional healing. The special significance of the number 3 adds the elements of balance and trilogy to all that energy. Individual crystals that have detached and separated from the clusters have much more specific energy, but are definitely still part of the whole. This special quartz energy is said to be capable of regeneration on many levels thus the name Negative Entropic.
To better understand the energy of the crystals we need to get down to the basics of the words in their name. Entropy n. A measure of the disorder or unavailability of energy within a closed system.
Two great processes operate in all systems, be they cells, humans or what ever: 1) entropy, in which energy is decreasing and disorder increasing, and 2) negative entropy in which energy is increasing and disorder decreasing. Negative entropy is thought to be the critical choice for humanity at this time in history. This is a chosen path of conscious evolution: do we unconsciously follow the groove of cultural, social and religious entropy, or do we marshal the forces of Life, the great force of neg-entropy in the universe? In order to optimize the universal life force in our own lives, we have to become responsible for all of our own actions including health and healing. We have to whole-heartedly embrace a neg-entropic life.
This is the great gift of the Negative Entropic Crystals. They enable us to reverse the forces of entropy in our own bodies and in our lives.
  
To put it simply, these beautiful crystals can help you regenerate your life and energy. Their energy regenerates itself by continuing to grow even after being removed from their natural growth environment. They can even be programmed to heal using this unique energy source. Start your path of regenerating goodness and health in your life by owning your very own special Negative Entropic Crystal.

Austin Agates Exclusive


This is Los Arcoiris Agate, a variety of Laguna Agate found on Rancho Ojo Laguna.  In Spanish, 'el arco iris' means 'the rainbow,' which is a fitting name for this multi-color, banded agate.
 
 
Notes 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.

Birthstone


Opal
 
Opal has the same basic chemical components as Quartz, which can be used to manifest any intention.  In addition to silica and oxygen, Opal contains molecular water, making it a perfect stone to manifest changes in our emotional and intuitive bodies. 

In the metaphysical world, Opal is most known for its ability to bring one's traits and characteristics to the surface for examination and transformation. Just as Opal absorbs and reflects light, it picks up thoughts and feelings, desires and buried emotions, amplifying them and returning them to the source. While magnifying one's negative attributes may prove to be uncomfortable, it allows for understanding how destructive these emotions can be and assists the process of letting them go. Opal also illuminates the positive actions and emotions of the self, enhancing the good and true, and fostering one's highest potential. It is a karmic stone with a reminder that what one sends out will return.
