Pete + Shaz
Who the hell are we you ask? 🤣
We're Shari + Peta 😀
(Affectionally known as, Shaz + Pete)
We're sisters and the creators of Unearthed Crystals.
We began Unearthed in 2015; whoa, time just flew by!
At the time, as crystal lovers, we felt there was something missing in the crystal world. A safe space for crystals just didn't seem to exist.
Every website we tried to purchase crystals from was either very sketchy looking (for some reason all the websites were purple? and didn't feel legit enough to enter your credit card details into lol), Nobody seemed interested in answering our questions about where the stones were sourced, The items 9 times out of 10 would arrive broken because they had just been thrown into a postage bag, or if they were packed decently, they looked nothing like what we had ordered.
So we took matters into our own hands and began Unearthed.
Our mission is to educate as many people as we can on the benefits of crystals and spiritual practises, and to take away the ‘strange’ stigma that’s been attached to this for the last 40 or so years.
We want to simplify the process of buying stones online; and for you to trust that whenever you get babes from us, they’re going to be the best - EVERY. DAMN. TIME.
We want to unscramble all the vague crystal ‘meanings’ and interpret them for you in easy to relate to terms.
Most importantly, we want to make even a tiny bit of difference to someone’s day.
How do we plan pull all this off? We’re just winging it and trusting our guts. At the end of the day it boils down to our undeniable passion for our products, our business, and most importantly - our customers and fellow crystal lovers.
We pour every single particle of ourselves into this, and still to this day get excited every time we get an order, constructive criticism or a message of encouragement. The absolute feeling of bliss to have our work appreciated and supported is too hard to describe.
So to put it simply; THANK YOU.
In July 2022 Shaz announced that she would be leaving Unearthed to follow her passion in Interior Design. You can follow here over on Instagram... @valhalla.house
Eternal Love + Light,

Pete | Owner
These days it's just me, Pete, but the "brains" behind the whole operation also included my sister Shaz. My days mainly consists of not taking myself too seriously, trying to discouragie the team from eating cake for breakfast, and then yelling out every single angel number I sees throughout the day(which is a lot!). But seriously, I are so grateful to out my dream, and to have the most incredible team behind me.
Jim | Operations Manager
Jim is my little sister - I broke all cardinal rules of business and employed family members! It's nuts, but it works. Most days we're not actually sure what it is she does, I just gave her a cool job title, but what I do know is I could NOT run this show without her. She's our in house tetris master, Feng Shui guru, and provides unlimited laughs.

Charlie | Assistant Operations Manager
Like I mentioned, we go against the grain - this is our mum! Apart from making sure all of our stock is accounted for and processed so it makes it to the website (VERY important!), she's incredibly good at keeping us all in line, as mums do. She believes in us endlessly, and always has our backs.
Susan | Inventory Controller
Susan has been with us since the very beginning! She's the one that makes sure all of your favourite pieces are in stock. She fancies herself as the best singer in the world - except when compared to her hero, Whitney Houston (Hot tip - she's a terrible singer). Always down for a good story time, she brightens the room with her tales and overzealous love of cake.
Juavelle | Order Picker + Packer
Another of our OG staff members, Juavelle is the one who picks most of our orders to make sure the piece you're getting is the one meant for you. Hopefully you're not ordering Malachite though, she has an aversion to irregular patterns and circles - Trypophobia. Cool, calm and collected, ain't nothing that can shake our Velle.
Hayleigh | Order Picker + Packer
HELLO SASS, meet Hayleigh, we've affectionately named her Harvey (it's a long story). She's new to crystals but since beginning with us has VERY quickly acquired a beautiful collection of stones, much to her husbands confusion. Fun fact - we think she was a magpie in a past life because she has an affinity for shiny things. Nothing is ever too much of a task for her, She's reliable AF.
