OCEAN GROVE, NJ — A kaleidoscope of natural crystals in all shapes, sizes and dazzling colors will be showcased on Sunday, December 15 and Monday, December 16 at Serenity by the Sea, 53 Main Avenue.

The Crystal Sale begins at noon on Sunday at the specialty boutique, to be followed at 4:30 p.m. by a Crystal 101 Workshop for those looking to explore the power of crystal healing.
