The word summer immediately arouses the feel and view of    sunstruck beaches, wavy ocean breezes, coastal rocks and shells, winding garden paths and wildflower meadows . Who can mistake the myriad fragrances of coconut, lemon, honeysuckle, clover and the beloved barbecue?  The sizzle and pop of fireworks, a fire flie’s orbit, or a hummingbird’s dance enchant us. The season’s vibrant warmth and unceasing daylight beckons a songbird’s melody, the cricket’s nighttime chirp and the satisfying taste of basil-topped garden tomatoes, fresh berries, homemade ice cream or toasted marshmallows on a stick.  How welcoming and inviting summer truly is. June, July and August are unquestionably  a perfect time of year to explore and enjoy the vibrant energies of elegant stones and crystals. These are just a few of the assortment of minerals that can bring summertime delight.
