How we began: Crystals By Nature was born in April of 2016 when owner of Nature’s Treasures of Texas, Karen Richards, had the desire to share her passion for crystals and metaphysics outside the Austin based storefront. Crystals By Nature features and sells crystal products online, allowing people all over the U.S. to purchase and appreciate all that Nature’s Treasure’s has to offer. As one of the largest metaphysical stores in the U.S., Nature’s Treasure’s provides Crystals By Nature with an extensive and unique set of products, making the online store truly one of a kind. We pride ourselves on great customer service and high quality products, while finding and enjoying all of Earth’s gifts. Satisfy all of your crystal needs and discover new ways of healing at CrystalsByNature.com, your #1 stop for everything crystals.

Grace Snively - Writer
Grace graduated in May of 2015 from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in Writing. Since then Grace has held multiple writing positions around Austin, serving as an editorial intern for Austin Woman Magazine and as the Creative Writer for local artist collective SprATX. She was recently asked to join the Crystals By Nature team as the Web Content Strategist. It was then that all of her passions aligned: writing, art, and Earth’s energy.
Grace is crazy about traveling and hopes that one day her travels and talent as a writer take her all over the world. Her love of healing crystals began not too long ago, and has truly developed into a permanent way of living.
Nancy Barnard - Writer
Nancy has been a writer and blogger at Crystals by Nature since June 2016. Despite a lifelong interest in metaphysics, Barnard is relatively new to the world of crystals (although she did have a rather impressive geode collection as a child). Prior to her tenure at Crystals By Nature, Barnard produced and wrote plays for a community theatre and taught writing at Austin Community College. When not delving into the world of crystals, she enjoys reading, community building and spending time with her family.
