ABOUT US : OUR COOL AMAZING SHOP!
Welcome to RocknCrystals About Us page. Our philosophy is to collect minerals from as close to the source as possible. This benefits both the miner and you. We have a huge range of mineral specimens, rocks, crystals, rare and elusive items from exotic locations. You will find quality crystal and mineral specimens at the best prices. The huge range includes Minerals, Crystals, Fossils, Meteorites, Jewellery and Gemstones; Opal, Jade, Polished Stones, Rock, Lapidary Material, Metals, Magnets and Healing Crystals. From beginner level to museum quality crystals and Opals. We are professional mineral dealers and this enables us to offer the most extensive range of minerals in Sydney.
RocknCrystals was founded in 2010.
RocknCrystals the concept started many moons ago from our natural attraction to crystals in all their myriad shapes, types and colours. We (Sarah & Stu) realised our love of rocks had got right out of hand and we had developed a serious case of rockspox! Many people mentioned, that “maybe we should think about going into business, there are no good crystal shops in Sydney”.
By 2010 we had settled on our business name RocknCrystals and were attending our local Glebe Market with our collection of goodies sourced direct from around the World. A trip to Nepal in 2011 inspired us to follow our dreams in earnest. Back then there were mineral shows around the country that we traded at, from Brisbane to Melbourne.
Our first shop happened spontaneously, in the inner west Sydney suburb of Marrickville. We took over a shop that had previously supplied Buddhist Books and Supplies to the region for many years. It was one of the first and certainly the most extensively stocked mineral shops in Sydney. Including an amazing display of fluorescent minerals in our little ‘glowroom’. Complimenting the minerals with a large stock of crystals, gems, rocks and fossils. This soon became a beacon for collectors from all over the region and even overseas.
In 2015 we launched the Sydney Crystal Show!. Invited the top traders in our industry to attend a two day show at nearby Sydenham. This was a great success and we ran several more shows here and around Sydney. Most recent being a one day show at the Sydney Showgrounds in 2018. For the moment we are kept busy enough sourcing materials and listing them on our website. We get a lot of interest from traders and customers every week to run the next one, so stay tuned for details via our mailing list, social media.
Eventually we relocated the Marrickville shop to the eclectic Paddington area, “Paddo” to the locals. During this time our website was increasing almost more than we could manage, while retail in general was in a bit of a lull, the new normal as it turns out! So we did the obvious and moved online full time where more of our goodies could be made available to all our customers around the World and of course here in Aussie at a much lower price.
We continue to be passionate about sourcing exotic minerals and gems from locations around the World and providing a top range at great prices to you, our valued customers. Rock On!
