Sunworks gets back some stolen crystals

Owners says it creates ‘bad energy’ to steal

Karma could be working for the owners of Red Deer’s Sunworks store, who got some stolen merchandise back on Tuesday.

Paul Harris and Terry Warke were disturbed when a thief (or thieves) distracted store staff and made off with a small display case of expensive natural crystal pendants on Dec. 7.

The display case was later found dumped downtown, but was empty of pendants.

The stolen crystals were apparently later offered for sale on the street, with the Sunworks tags still attached. A women, who’d bought two pendants for a vastly discounted price, had a pang of conscience about purchasing stolen merchandise.

Stealing crystals is “very bad karma,” said Harris, who was told the woman was “shaking” when she turned over the crystals to the Silver Cove rock and gem shop, at 5511-50th Ave., saying she didn’t know where to find Sunworks.

“She bought them on the street from a man near 47th Street… (and) described the feeling of knowing that these crystals didn’t belong to her, rightfully.”

The owners of Silver Cove returned the crystals to Sunworks.

The Ross Street store’s Facebook page shows a video of a smudging ceremony performed to rid the rocks of bad energy — Harris suggested it’s better to be safe than sorry.

He’s hoping for the return of the other stolen pendants.
