About

THE CRYSTAL SEEN MOVES TO MT IDA "THE CRYSTAL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD"

Dennis "Dino" Kincaid and Julie "RavynHawk" Kincaid met and became friends in the summer of 1992, while both were living in the same apartment complex in Austin, Texas. At the time, Dennis was a grill chef at a popular seafood restaurant in downtown Austin, and Julie was a postal worker and part-time massage therapist. A visit to the local market there, and a "life-changing" meeting with some crystal diggers, sparked their interest in one day going to dig their own crystals. That September, they made the first of many trips to Mount Ida, AR, "The Crystal Capital of the World" to dig these phenomenal "children" of Mother Earth. On their first dig, they met a man who taught Dino some very basic wire-wraps, and set him on his path to making jewelry with these natural crystal beauties. One thing led to another, and Dino and Julie had accumulated so many crystals and unique pieces of jewelry that they had to find a place to sell them. They worked together and began to build their inventory, crafting with crystals and other stones. They opened a booth at the same market they had visited 11 months earlier, calling their little business "The Crystal Seen" a name that still carries on today. They married in 1998, purchased property on Highway 270 (just outside of Mt. Ida) for a future shop, and in October of '99, they quit their jobs and moved to Arkansas to begin their new life. Today they have a growing internet business as well as a physical shop which carries many unique items. In addition, they are the caretakers of a wonderful rock-hounding mine, in which their many guests can find crystals and some very unique "seeded" gemstones.

It has been 24 years since Dino and I opened our first shop in Austin, Tx. in 1993, shortly after our first crystal dig in Mt. Ida, Arkansas 'The Crystal Capital of the World." With a growing passion and love for digging, and a focus on learning the habits and properties of these Crystal wonders of Mother Earth, we soon discovered that we both had a natural gift for digging and working with them. Over the next five years, every Saturday and Sunday, we found ourselves in a 20x10 booth in an outdoor market in Austin, the humble beginnings of "The Crystal Seen." With the special needs of our clients in mind, we began to combine crystals with other stones, set in our hand-crafted gold and silver jewelry, working specifically to bring clearing, balance and empowerment to body, mind and spirit with each piece we created.

Then, in November of 1997, we purchased property just outside of Mt. Ida with the dream of someday moving and building a shop. We realized that dream when we moved here in Oct. of 1999 and opened for business that December. Times were hard, and we saw a lot of changes in the mines and in the crystal business. We decided to focus our work on teaching, working with children, families and groups, and doing our own custom, intuitive and metaphysical jewelry. In addition, we keep "crystal tailings" right here at our shop, so that we can share the experience of the "dig" with all those who are "just passing through" and might not have the time to go to the mines.

In the spring of 2009 we were blessed with the purchase a 10 acre rock-hounding mine, where for $20/day/12 years +), $10/day for 7-11 and 6 and under FREE, we allow our visitors to gather crystals by the day. Hours are from 9-7 daily. Special arrangements must be made for Monday and Tuesday, our days away from the shop. We purchased this mine as a playground for the sole purpose of promoting the more natural and spiritual aspects of digging your own crystals, and we ask that you dig with honor and respect for our Mother Earth. You may keep all you find and/or can carry, and if you are able to open a pocket, you deserve the rewards!
