Have Fun While School's Still Out
It's almost time to go back to school and the perfect time to craft! Lucky for you, we have plenty of new stock. We have tumbled moonstone, bismuth pieces and geodes, amethyst stalactites, fluorite slices, new palm stones and much more! You can find septarian slices and lampwork glass on sale! To make room we are selling some of our display cases. Stop by and see if you find anything that catches your eye! 
As always, we hope to see you in-store this month, but if you can't make it, be sure to visit us online on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and our website

New In Stock!
Just a taste of our latest stock. Be sure to check out our Instagram to see more! 
We have expanded our line of aromatherapy pendants to include new shapes like these fun stars! Pendants start at $9.99 and most styles come in two finishes: silver and gold/bronze. Pair them with lava beads and leather cord to complete the look. 
We have several shapes, like owls, that work perfectly with heart-shaped lava beads available for just under $1. 
These fluorite slices are some of our favorite new additions. With just four available, they are in low supply and stunning. All four are available for $40 in our retail showroom. 
You can never have too many rough stones! These stones are excellent quality and come with helpful labels so you don't have to guess what they are. They're available for $3.99 individually or you can get a full set for $30.  
Bismuth is a truly spectacular metal with a multi-colored finish and complex etchings. These crystals are formed from pure heated bismuth. We are so excited to have both pieces and geodes in stock!
Check out some of latest products to grace the showroom floor. 
Lampwork glass beads are available for 30% off! These handmade beads are a labor of love and can fetch a fairly hefty price. You can see why in this lampwork glass bead demo. The majority of these sale beads are "mini pebbles" similar to drop-style beads. There are also spike-shaped beads, some round beads, and even a pendant. Get yours today!
