A unique slice of quartz, amethyst, and agate. This piece has beautiful banding! While agate and quartz grow together frequently, this piece caught our eye, with its enamel-like white material on the left side (likely agate or jasper). The dark stripe of amethyst within the quartz is also a point of interest! Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz, not an entirely separate mineral, so you will often find them together. We are open 10-6 daily and have lots of crystals waiting to find homes!

Petrified wood in some of the brightest warm tones we’ve seen!
Petrified wood forms naturally over time when the conditions are just right. Typically a tree would rot fairly quickly. Buried plant matter however, is protected from usual sources of decay like oxygen or organisms. Mineral-rich water flows through the ground, and over time crystallizes, replacing the preserved plant matter with materials like agate, calcite, and sometimes even opal.
The red and orange tones in this piece are a result of iron oxides.

Chrysanthemum stone is an intriguing mineral combination. It is composed of a dark limestone matrix with andalusite crystals that typically form in floral shapes. As with any mineral, the appearance of the specimen depends on the cut of the piece! The first photo here shows the “flower” patterning, and the second shows an interesting “pixelated” display of the same mineral composition.

I was so excited when I went into this store, I found a ring with gems from Mt. Antero. I watch the show {Prospector;s and this is from one of the mountains. It was an aquamarine ring with two small amethysts along the sides. It was $260, more than I wanted to spend, but because of where it originated I was very happy. 45 days later I noticed one of the small amethysts had fallen out. So I called Nature's Own to see what I could do, since I live in Omaha I could not just drive there. The person that answered the phone said that after 30 days they cannot do anything. Really!! I work in customer service and you can always do something. This changed my attitude towards this nice store. I still have my receipt and cannot believe they cannot do anything. Very upsetting, I know now that you cannot buy locally from a small store and get wrongs corrected. Very disappointing!
Hello! I visited your shop last week and got some AMAZING rocks...but a couple of them I forgot to remember what kind they were! Can anyone identify these? Thank you, I love the store!!!
