My name is Stacy Bogg, founder, and inventor of karmarocks. Although this company is in a very embryonic stage of development, the concept has been something that has been with me as long as I can remember. I have always been a collector of rocks, relics, fossils, crystals, and gemstones.
Even as a little girl, I can remember having my own rock stands and painting rocks and selling them. As long as I can remember, I could appreciate the divine value in anything created by mother nature herself.
Parallel to that, I have always seen the worth in using natural resources to achieve better physical, emotional, and spiritual growth and healing. After personal experiences myself accompanied by research, I wanted to develop a shopping platform for others who share my same fascinations.
Karmarocks was designed to incite questions about the processes of life, growth, and health by aiding in self-discovery. Many people ask how crystals can benefit them and how it works.
I often get asked: what are metaphysical properties in relation to crystals? When we think about the universe itself, we know all matter is made up of energy. Just as we are composed of atoms, made from the energy that involves some form of movement or work, so are crystals.
The term metaphysical simply refers to something we cannot see. In reference to crystals, its metaphysical properties are its abilities to absorb, balance, store, and express energy.
Crystals are made from energy which becomes atoms which form very stable structures known as lattices. This pattern or geometric structure is so perfect that even light moving through it passes through evenly. Crystal energy has the ability to interact with human energy, and help to align the energy flow within our bodily systems to promote balance and healing. This is not something that can be perceived, but rather noticed or felt.
This company was formed on the concept of bringing joy and enlightenment to everyone through the powerful rhythmic vibrational energy from crystals. Each crystal carries it’s own vibrational frequency and can even work exclusively in specific areas of our lives. Karmarocks is a company founded on helping people achieve a higher state of awareness and happiness through the overall experience with crystals.
Of course, we will never turn down someone simply wanting to add some integrity to their home decor. Luckily, crystals are also very easy on the eye and make beautiful additions to any home or workspace. Karmarocks is built on the foundation of love and appreciation of nature and embracing the beautiful energy that flows through each and every one of us.
1. What products and services do you offer?
It started when I was a geology student at Tulane. But, I am also a single mom and have a child with special needs. When my son was having issues and needed more of me, I left school to pursue this business. I took a chance and scheduled a mining trip to Georgia. I knew geological processes but didn’t know much else about it at the time!
I came back home with three suitcases filled with crystals and gems. That’s when I knew I could actually do this.
Karmarocks is a gem and mineral business. I mine many of the gems I sell. But when I can’t go do it myself, I have a trusted vendor that I get my products from.
I am also a certified crystal healer, ordained minister, and apprentice shaman.
2. How long have you been in business?
3. How do people find you online?
4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew?
It’s important to me that people know I dig most of my gems and crystals myself.
People I encounter appreciate the metaphysical value. They want to be sure this isn’t some bulk order from China and they are made of glass.
Also, you are supporting a single mother and a small, local business!
5. Lagniappe Info.
I am a certified crystal healer and it works off your chakra system. Different crystals resonate with different chakras. I use a non-invasive healing system using various crystals, sage, drumming, and even a crystal singing bowl.
