Owner, Ashley is a born and bred Kiwi, with a passion for animals and travel. With a background in business administration and ecology, Ashley is a nature-centred soul who enjoys the formation and energies from crystals and minerals. As a child, Ashley grew up surrounded by her father’s treasured crystal collection, including massive amethyst pillars, citrine geodes and many more around the house and in fish tanks. Ashley’s favourite crystal specimen is Labradorite. Together, Ashley works with her friend of almost 20 years, Willow.
Willow is a Kiwi with Scottish lineage and loves plants, making soaps and candles. Willow grew up outdoors making ‘potions’ of everything plus the kitchen sink, and collecting interesting rocks. As years passed and health issues surfaced, her interests turned closer to the energy and power of crystals, and mindfulness to help process and heal from trauma. Willow’s favourite specimen is Tiger’s Eye, but Dinosaur fossils are a close second.
Polished and Raw was born out of passion and a willingness to embrace the extraordinary, and to connect with beautiful souls from all over the world. We understand the wide use for crystals and the different meanings for each person, and are happy to help you no matter the use.
