Our AmazingFantasticIncredibleWonderful Team!

Founded in 1984, Crystalworks has evolved from a small home-based business to the world-class mineral gallery it is today. The gallery is devoted to promoting fine crystals, minerals and fossils as works of art and presents the unique opportunity to purchase specimens of a size and quality rarely seen outside of museums.

Each and every object, from the smallest tumbled stone to the largest specimen, is hand-selected by the owners for its beauty and perfection. Crystalworks’ mandate is to sell only ethically mined minerals. We do not sell dyed, man-made or radiated crystals, or cave formations such as calcite stalactites or stalagmites. We have enjoyed close friendships with our miners and mineral dealers for over 25 years. This allows us access to rare and unique specimens that normally would disappear into private collections and never make it onto the open market.

We work closely with local and international jewellers, gem carvers and designers, providing them with select gemstones and crystals and co-designing pieces to create the jewellery, objet d’art and high-quality gem carvings that are unique to the Gallery. Crystalworks also supports cottage industries and fair trade companies in Bali, Peru, Madagascar, Indonesia and India.

With the new space, it was our goal to create a modern, tranquil, and healthy “green” environment in which to explore the beauty and creativity of our Earth. To this end, the gallery was outfitted with renewable resource bamboo millwork, innovative recycled material countertops, revolutionary LED lighting, low VOC paints, energy-smart appliances, and finishes and furniture in sustainable materials. The floor of the gallery is infused with chlorite to help clear and ground the intense energies within the store.

We are a closely-knit family (both related and chosen) that is inspired by the mineral kingdom. We are passionate about what we do and we love sharing it with others. Opening this new gallery space has allowed us the opportunity to showcase the enormous creativity and beauty that our planet has to offer.
