Garrick Beck at Natural Stones on Baca Street (in Santa Fe) is a great resource for all stones and crystals au naturelle. PLUS he has an incredible wealth of knowledge about gemstones, their quality, properties and value. I just dropped by for a delicious Chai at his neighbor's place, Counter Culture -- and Donna Nova the fabulous glass bead designer is also next door. A veritable mecca for jewelry designers and beading enthusiasts. Visit them, and buy often.
