I handpick your practitioner level stones and tools because I care about you and the stones, and I want you to receive the benefits of working with highly energetically active stones, not a bunch of pretty shelf sitters that are energetically dormant or dead.
I will hand pick stones and tools for you that resonate with your unique energetic signature, as well as work together harmoniously for the intended purpose. I've been doing this for over 3 decades.
I worked for one of the largest importers of stones in this country for 12 years before becoming a mom, (my youngest is 16) and learned which mines and manufacturers treated stones with care, and which ones only cared about their bottom line. I made many invaluable connections then, that today, allow me entry in to areas of warehouses that most businesses aren't allowed to shop from.
Most stones that come into the United States come through Charleston, S.C., and the further west you go, the more picked over the stones are at gem shows.
I handpick mainly at warehouses in South Carolina, North Carolina and Florida, where the goodies are before they go to gem shows.
I hand pick, in person, all of the stones for my students, clients and my shop for their level of energy, and only purchase from importers that I know take care of them properly, and from mines that handle them in a way that does not affect them negatively.
Unfortunately, 95% of stones on the market do not stand up to my stringent standards.
