Crystals are for everyone.

As a child, I was always on the look out for interesting rocks and stones. I’d go on little “expeditions” along the side of the road or at the beach and pick up anything that caught my eye.

This proclivity for interesting natural resources manifested when a colleague presented me with a small clear quartz point she had mined herself. At the time, I thought it was odd, but it opened a whole new world to me – crystal & mineral collection.

My experience with the crystal world was initially one of intimidation. I didn’t know much about the metaphysical side of things, and felt like some of that knowledge was being gate-kept or was surrounded in judgement since I was a beginner.

This lead to the adoption of the Crystalize mantra: Crystals are for everyone. No matter how you intend to use them, no matter what you believe, no matter your preference or practice – all are welcome.

Where to find Crystalize Shop

I am an open book when it comes to crystal collection – and encourage you to reach out to me. Crystalize is a one-woman operation based in Chicago, shipping worldwide. I find the best, most interesting pieces from ethical sources and look for items that I know will enrich my client’s lives. 

If you are looking for a specific type of stone or piece, I do frequently source items for private clients. If there is something you’d like to see that isn’t currently in the store, please send me an email at hello [AT] for more information.
