Hello Marigolds!

In life, we all have moments that we will never forget. Some of these moments can change our lives forever. For me, my love for crystal geology began during a time of grief when I lost my father and sibling. The process of grief felt like a rough terrain of life, the erosion of living without them, and the unknown journey of grieving alone. But through my love for nature and conversations about what my father called "rocks," I found a way to cope. Studying nature, specifically my favorite flower, the Marigold, and crystals, helped me find my way out of this numb space.

I dove deeper into the science of crystal geology and learned about how crystals go through the elements of nature through an abrupt yet unknown course. I discovered that despite going through rough waters, volcanos, and erosion, crystals persevere and push on, just like my difficult times. I also learned that just like some crystals that may appear blemished on the outside, they can be beautiful on the inside after the transformation process, like the agate or calcite. It reminded me that even in difficult times, there is beauty to be found.

Through my experiences in nature, hiking, and cave mining, I found unique crystals that I turned into decor and accessories. But it was not just about the beauty of the crystals. I learned that life is about creating your own calm and being your positive best self, even during difficult times. While I had to make changes and sacrifices, it humbled me and changed me in ways that I know my father and sibling would be proud of. It taught me the importance of perseverance and resilience.

So, I encourage you to find your own way to create calm and beauty in your life, even during tough times. Remember that just like crystals, with perseverance and resilience, you can persevere and overcome any challenge that comes your way.I invite you to own a piece of my collection, all parts are from nature, and once they are sold, new items are mined and posted.   Thank you so much for your support. I love you guys so much.

All the best,
