About Us

 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.
