I have a very grown up crystal shop. And, because I have a young child and I know what it is like to be in a place where you have to watch their little hands, I always wanted (and made) my store to be a place where it is okay to touch, for everyone. (My only request is that they not be allowed to eat the rocks and I rely on Mom and Dad for that.) Through allowing touch I was able to connect with the fascination and connection that most kids have with crystals. And my own daughter started collecting. ("Mommy, can I have this?" over and over again. How could I ever say no?) So I got her a box to keep them in, we decorated it and thus The Mineral of the Month Club was born. Thank You, Phoenix Rose! You always inspire me.

In the middle of every month my son starts wanting to check the mailbox. I love that he's getting excited over something natural for a change.
