Our Sponsors

The-Vug is successful thanks to all of our visitors, partners and sponsors.  


Treasures of Darkness was created out of a love of unique and beautiful minerals and to help others start and grow their own collections. The specimens we present on this site will always be those that we feel are unique, have excellent aesthetics, and would be quality additions to personal collections.

Natural Selection Crystals

It comes naturally

Natural Selection Crystals was established by Jordan Root in 2006 at 16 years old, a hobby. He had no clue at that time it would eventually be his means for living as it progressed into a meaningful and fulfilling career in the world of mineralogy. Christina joined NSC in 2016 after persuing mineral collecting as a hobby for several years.
