Our little office has grown and it is so exciting! Chantel joined the team in February, and last week we welcomed Stephan on board. I am SO grateful to each and every one of you who has shown us support and enabled our dream to grow. THANK YOU!

Below you can see us in action – Russell at the back next to the lightbox, taking photos of new stock as he does on a Friday, Chantel in the front wrapping one of your orders, and Stephan sitting on the left cataloging new stock. Mr Kimble, our rescue Border Collie x in the middle with his helicopter tail at full tilt of course haha!

If you follow our Eco Blog, you’ll know that we have built this space on our piece of land in the Overberg, where we live and work completely off the grid. Everything is always “in progress” – and of course the office space is too.

The Wings of Angels

I have just uploaded some brand new batches of one of my favourite stones, Angel Aura Quartz. These beautiful little Spirit Quartz or Fairy Quartz clusters have been coated in precious metals to create rainbow Aura Quartz.

Aura Quartz is man made – it is clear Quartz crystal that has been coated with energy-enhancing minerals and metals, including titanium, copper, iron, gold and others in a process of applied heat & electrolysis. This combines the power of Quartz with the power of the precious metals to create a special super-Quartz!

All Aura Quartz have beautiful iridescence, which is where the name ‘Aura’ is derived. Different Aura Quartz colours are a combination of different precious metals to achieve their different effects. Angel Aura Quartz is a combination of natural Quartz crystal bonded with Platinum and Silver, creating a silvery iridescence like the gossamer wings of angels.

Earthly Delights

From celestial heights to earthly delights – We’ve added some cool ancient fossils – including probably the quirkiest conversation starter you could ever hope to own in your collection – actual fossilized dinosaur poop!

In ancient times, fossils were believed to be stony casts of seed decedents that grew on Earth from the realms of the stars. This gift from the stars was used to enhance telepathic communication between this present reality and the prior worlds. Heightens and supplements your accomplishments in the business realm and instils quality and excellence within your environment. Helps you to dispense with old programming and schedules, and to be open, receptive and perceptive of the fresh innovative forces available.

I feel like some of these fossils would make an AMAZING set of bones for throwing – if you try this, please let me know!

Wheel of the Year banner


This month we move out of the Seed Moon of Ostara and into the Mating Moon, closing off the month with the fire festival of Beltane.

The earth is at the height of fertility and it is a time for great merry-making (and baby-making). Spring has truly sprung and there is a great abundance and renewal of life. In the life of the Earth our Mother, plants send forth their pollen, animals mate or bring forth young, and, in the words of the poet, “young men’s fancies turn to thoughts of love”.

Green plants and other fresh foods are reintroduced into winter diets of salt meat and stored grains. Bodies respond to better nutrition and look beyond the bare survival of winter, to the production of new lives.

Beltane is the Great Festival of Life, celebrated in the Southern Hemisphere on 31 October (in the Northern Hem they’ll be celebrating Samhain and the modern day Halloween). Beltane is traditionally celebrated with a great feast and a huge bonfire, maypole dancing, flower crowns and hand fastenings – which are pagan weddings.

Pam Gregory

Pam Gregory talks about the astrological developments for the first half of October and the New Moon in Libra on the 6th. What does this mean for you?

Things to do this month:
1. Scratch a metaphorical itch
2. Don’t just sit there…
3. Do something!

New Moon Affirmation:
“All my relationships are getting better and better”

Yasmin says “this New Moon is THE New Moon of the year to think about & work on your relationships. So think about where you are with the people who matter most to you, and what you can do between now and the end of the year to show them how much you care.”

“This New Moon, tune into the three Goddesses of love: Aphrodite (Greek), Venus (Roman) and Lakshmi (Hindu). All three Goddesses attract abundance – material, emotional and spiritual.”

Join Yasmin’s live Facebook Ceremony, “Libran Love Moon Ceremony” this new moon:
