OH SHINY GLITTERING CRYSTALS, HOW I LOVE THEE !
It's OK to love rocks ! Really it is! Most everyone I've met has fond childhood memories of a treasure box full of found natural objects (seashells, driftwood, bird eggs, rocks, fossils, pine cones) and I'm surprised at how many grown ups act embarrassed to admit they still love 'em.
Be free, friends! Your neighbor loves rocks, your coworkers, the parking ticket writer and SO DO YOU !
Soon I will be focused on collecting crystals, minerals and gemstones for the 2011 markets and festivals.
Do you have any requests ? That one gemstone that keeps popping out at you but you can't seem to find ?
Wanting a bowl of tumbled gemstones to keep on your office desk? Like to pass along crystals to friends and strangers ? Use them in your healing practice ? your artwork ? This is your chance !
I'll take suggestions from now til Thursday morning on the crystals you'd be interested in purchasing.

The jeweler allows me to wear the sapphire blue lake on my finger, the emerald green leaves around my neck, and take the citrine sunset with me wherever I go. Jewelry has become my daytime link to nature in an office with no windows. And if I have to work late, there's nothing like diamond stars and a pearl full moon against an onyx night sky. ~Astrid Alauda, "Office With No Windows"
