I have been collecting minerals since I was 7, see my blog www.collectingminerals.blogspot.com
Stones are my passion and my love, I admire them all from the high end, expensive fine minerals, to simple pebbles and rock pieces found on the beach. This passion to stones pushed me to opening my first shop on Etsy- RockyRoadMinerals, where I sell mineral specimens and cabochons, and then NatureMagicStones where I sell natural crafts supplies, jewelry, painted stones and shells and cabochons.
My mum. She is the one who picks up the nicest pebbles, seaglass pieces and driftwood on the beach. She also does accounting and... babysitting- a very important role when I am away collecting minerals for a whole day!
My sister. She designs and makes hag stone jewelry, acts as a model and also is my collecting companion. Need a nice crystal?- give her a chisel and a hammer and she'll surely find it for you!
Trainee Collector ;)
My son. Learning to collect stones from his early years, he is great help on the beach :)

Frequently asked questions
For all minerals sold by piece (for example: pyrite, amazonite, lapis lazuli, onyx, aventurine and similar), we`ll be happy to offer good discounts if you`re buying more than 10 pieces. Please contact us for details.
We ship all orders within 3 days of purchase. All items will be shipped with standard Irish Postal Services, unless you decide to purchase a shipping upgrade available. Standard post means that no tracking will be provided. Although we find that service very safe and as for January 2018 there was only one case of a package lost, we would encourage you to purchase the shipping upgrade for orders of higher value. Once a package leaves our premises, we have no control over it, therefore we cannot be responsible for packages lost or significantly delayed. We will only issue refunds for packages lost when a Buyer had purchased the shipping upgrade ("registered with tracking"). We will always do our best to assist you if any problem arises.
Purchase of multiple items
We combine shipping for items purchased in our three shops. We will always try to find the best and cheapest shipping option for you! Unfortunately, Etsy would sometimes over- or underestimate the shipping cost as the system is not perfect. In the first case we will issue a refund within 7 days of the purchase, if the shipping overcharge is over 1 Euro. In the second case we will contact you to inform about the situation and agree on a suitable solution.
Our shipping cost is weight-based. The weight of each item can be found in the description. The international standard shipping cost is as follows: 100g- 4.50 Euro, 250g- 5.50 Euro, 500g- 6.50 Euro, 1kg- 12.25 Euro, 1.5 to 2kg- 18.50 Euro.
Orders eligible of free shipping
We offer free shipping with tracking provided if the total of your order from our three shops (the other two are RockyRoadMinerals on Etsy and www.rockyroadminerals.com) is minimum 120 Euro. If you are buying in your local currency, please use www.xe.com to check current exchange rates. 120 Euro will approximately be 147 USD, 107 GBP, 185 AUD or 183 CAD. The above are only estimates.
Please, let us know if you have placed an order if any of our other shops. The orders have to be placed no longer than 1 hour apart from each other.
