Gem and Mineral show Part Two: What’s Coming

Here’s a preview of what’s on the way, coming by boat. They didn’t make it here in time for the show. These babies should be here by the end of August. The Bolivian Amethyst Clusters are amazing, 90 lbs, 75 lbs, and 57 lbs. Most have Citrine inclusions. The big Smokey Quartz Elestial is 45 lbs, the best I’ve ever seen. There’s more, but you get the idea. So, waiting…. I’m so excited.

The August Gem and Mineral Show

August brings us the largest Gem and Mineral show on the East Coast, held at the Eastern States convention center, in Springfield, Massachusetts. This year’s show was probably the best one ever for us. We had pre-purchased some incredible specimens from a dealer down in Brazil, giving me the first look at what he was buying. He was there for a month. I was blown away by what he found. Some of it made it up here in time for the show, some of it is traveling up by boat, and should arrive by the end of the month. Here’s some of what I brought home with me.


bought two huge natural Citrine clusters, one is 78 lbs, one is 75 lbs. They have beautiful large points and crazy rainbows, and have black Tetrahedrites and some hints of Smokey Quartz. Spectacular. There’s a huge Smokey Quartz Point, 42 lbs, also with black Tetrahedrites, which has sections of Citrine, and Manifestation crystals inside of it. ( A Manifestation Crystal is another perfect crystal growing inside. Not a Phantom. A whole other crystal. This point has three).

Next is a 16” Citrine Point, 23 lbs, beautiful rainbows. I bought some fabulous Quartz Spheres, so alive with rainbows that it’s amazing. A foot long log of black Tourmaline. About 30 Obsidian Spheres, ranging from 3” to 7”. Rainbow Obsidian, Gold Sheen Obsidian, and Silver Sheen Obsidian. Wow. All from a Mine in Mexico, the only Obsidian dealer that I buy from.

I bought a few Rhodochrosite Spheres, some Gemstone Trees that people have been asking for, ( Carnelian, Amethyst, Rose Quartz), large Quartz Points, more Bumblebee Jasper… our SUV was packed to the limit.

I have no words for what just walked through the door. These are Master Healers and teachers. I know they will go to their destiny. They always do. It’s my honor to be in guardianship of them until they leave. Everything is unpacked, and my office is back to normal. For now. Until the next shipment arrives. Oh, God. Blessings, Judith

Monthly Forecast For May

Art by Josephine Wall

May is a lovely month, vibrating to Taurus, a Fixed Earth sign of the zodiac. The symbol for Taurus is the Bull, representing courage, tenacity, and fixity of purpose. The truth is, you can’t get a Taurus to do anything that they don’t want to do. Don’t waste your breath. Taurus ♉️ is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, creativity, charm, and beauty. It’s flower or essential oil is the rose or jasmine. The stones would be Rose Quartz, Angelite, Blue Chalcedony, or Mangano Calcite. Softness is the key.

This month is interesting, with 5/3 having the Moon moving into Taurus, preparing for the New Moon on 5/4. On the 3rd, the Moon conjuncts both Mercury and Uranus. Since Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, this brings an opportunity to access the higher consciousness, the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. It’s a perfect time for intention work, especially since with the Taurus ♉️ energy, it has longevity. I would extend that across the third, fourth, and fifth. All excellent. Since Taurus represents the Earth Element, which is about what nurtures or nourishes us in Chinese Medicine, take some time to nurture your soul on this New Moon.

The 7th is intense, with aspects to Neptune and Jupiter reminding us not to overextend. 5/8 is fabulous, again, extremely high vibe. The Heart Chakra, Third Eye, and Crown Chakra are activated, bringing a higher vision, and a capacity to grow through grace. 5/9 continues that, but adds Pluto and Saturn into the mix, so be ready to release anything that does not grow your soul. It’s a time of shedding. Sometimes, that’s a good thing. People don’t grow like railroad tracks, at the same rate of speed. Free Will allows people to grow, or not grow. Avoiding codependency and enmeshment is important.

5/12 is Mother’s Day. The Moon in Virgo ♍️ is making several magical aspects. It’s a wonderful day to access the Divine Feminine energy of the universe, that Kwan Yin energy, the goddess of mercy and compassion. We are all Yin and Yang. This is a day to celebrate the Yin energy of the universe, receiving. Affirm that you are, in every moment, receiving all of the love, joy, beauty, and blessings that the universe has for you.

5/18 is the Full Moon, with the Sun 🌞 in Taurus ♉️, opposing the Moon 🌚 in Scorpio. ♏️. Excellent, excellent, excellent day. It’s a powerful manifesting day. Grab onto the energy of this one, and get ready to break through old patterns. Rock this, it’s amazing.

5/22 is very powerful, with the Moon 🌚 in Capricorn ♑️ conjunct to Pluto and Saturn again. Any change is possible.

This month is rich with astrological possibilities. It’s a month of renewal, gentle healing, being nurtured, and replenished. May it bring you all of the love and joy you deserve. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
