No, we mean that literally

Did you know?
Nature's Treasures, that local storehouse and showroom of incredible hunks and shards and crystalline formations of mind-freakingly gorgeous rocks and minerals, is conducting a sort of rockalicious scavenger hunt?
Yes, a scavenger hunt – wherein you (using your sleuthing skills and rambling all over this city's iconic constructions and outdoor parks over the next several days) have a chance to win a specimen of large and surpassing lithic beauty.
First prize: A Brazilian Amethyst Cathedral worth around $500.
Second prize: A $450 Arkansas Golden Healer Quartz Cluster.
Third prize: A $300 Chrysocolla Boulder from Arizona.
Yeah, we're talking about some hella fine treasures of nature, alright. And the way you vie for these beauties is by seeking out and finding the 14 (much smaller) chunks of distinctively green Chrysocolla that the Nature's Treasure team have hidden all around the ATX.
You wanna get on that right now? Before the slavering crowds of other rockhounds beat you to it? Especially because the hunt has, like, already begun … but a few rocks still remain unfound?
Well, then. See the website right here, and grab you some clues, and prepare to explore your city like you probably never have before.
Prepare to, we daresay, rock on.
