ds Spring Rocks!
Posted by meredith to Articles



Happy Spring from all of us at Dakota Stones! 
I went around the shop today and had a great time picking out my favorite spring stones for 2016. I ended up choosing colors with an organic, soft yet vibrant feel. These colors celebrate new beginnings and I simply wanted to pass the inspiration on to you. Enjoy!

SPRING TIDBITS:
- The first day of spring (spring equinox) falls on March 19th/20th this year (for those of us in the central time zone, it hits at 1130pm on the 19th).

- On the spring equinox, the Sun spends a roughly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on the Earth, so night and day are approximately the same length.

- The word equinox is Latin for "equal night".

- Meteorologists use the equinox as the official change of the season because, although it varies each year, it allows for the most accurate record-keeping.
