Terra Harmonia - Entering the Rockhounding Realm!

regina kapta

Terra Harmonia - earth in sync - in harmony, creating incredible crystals, minerals and semi-precious stones that are a joy to explore.

What do you do when you have a basement full of rocks and mineral specimens?

I'll bet you have a few buckets of rocks laying around! Geodes, agates, fossils, petrified wood, corals and shells - these are all fair game to the true rockhound!

Countless trips to quarrys, riverbeds, gravel pits and rock shows have taught us to appreciate what's under our feet. But, as we discovered, there is always something new to learn. Tony and I caught the rockhounding bug in 2006 and took the next step into the world of minerals...we bought Rusty’s Rock Shop in Decatur Illinois, from Rich and Darlene Perry, and have been sharing our interests about minerals ever since. It’s a way of life now!

Our rockhunting interests keep us active and learning about minerals, gemstones, jewelry and agates; and gives us an opportunity to get out of the house and travel, with plenty of reasons to get out and meet new people!

With the rock shop sitting firmly in the basement, we launched the storefront for Earthinsync several years ago. This is only the latest iteration of the store - with more to come, as each box or flat is uncovered - revealing a surprise crystal flash, or eliciting a groan as the minerals in the flat have disintegrated. Basically rocks and minerals don't change too much over time, as long as they are not exposed to too much light, heat or certain other minerals that might contain acids. We have discovered boxes of pyrite suns - both intact and pristine, as well as piles of grey powder from the high sulphur content found in the Illinois coal veins.  

Join us on this journey as we learn more and more about gemstones, minerals, agates, photography, jewelry and this incredible space on the web. Opt-in below for updates on the blog, new additions to the rock shop, and special discounts!
