areas of ones journey.
As the worlds understanding and knowledge grow where alternative
healing and the metaphysical are concerned so does our self

and a Chakra kit years ago has now begun to take over sections
of the store. Pendulums, wands, spheres, geometric shaped
crystals, Introduction to Alternative Healing kits, meditation
strands, singing bowls and a variety of Hindu and Buddhist
statues are just some of the things you will see when you visit
us. Don't forget to check out our metaphysical wall, here you
will find nearly a hundred pre bagged minerals with a label
describing their metaphysical abilities.
We make it our ongoing quest to search out the new and
latest healing crystals. Lemurian Quartz, Amegreen, Moldavite,
Watermelon Tourmaline, Rutilated Quartz, Diopside, Celestite and
Quantum Quatro are only a small selection "Natures Treasures"
