While up in Oak Glen a few days back, I came across various gemstones for sale that related to chakras and zodiac signs. I am an Aries and my assigned stone is Aventurine. It's gorgeous.

I'd like all of that, please. I was about to take the pendant to the register to purchase it when I realized I didn't need a stupid rock to tell me what I could or couldn't do.

Dusky Eyes

Fourth Anniversary gift - cactus lovers! haha

Don't Forget the Crystals

Quartzite, AZ
I wish to wander there.

During part of January and February, the town of Quartzite holds a market of sorts; half mineral show, half swap meet. It's heavenly.

Also, while researching Quartzite, Arizona, came about some amazingly wonderous photos of crystals. I was enticed!

Ok, so this man here is obviously amazing and so are those minerals.


yes. no.2

That's my new post.
