Gemstone Photo Competition Winners 

We are thrilled to award two winners in our gemstone photo-story competition and would like to share their lovely entries. Congratulations to David and Chris on each winning a Rockchic R500 gift voucher. Here are their stories:


Attached please find my family of spheres that have all come to me lovingly over many months from your shop. Each one has a special story and a special place in my heart. Although I collect a wide range of crystals, spheres speak a message that I find very spiritually relevant. The roundness of the crystal ball symbolically represents a sense of oneness, wholeness, completion, karma, and respect for cyclical energies. The smooth surface of the sphere facilitates clear communication and helps to keep the energy flow moving. They are integral in my spiritual practice.

The Sodalite sphere, which to me assists in creativity, was a Christmas gift in 2021 from my partner.

The Pyrite, I draw on for abundance AND protection. Pyrite is one of my favorite crystals as it has such a bold appearance and this crystal certainly exuded the confidence of the stone when it said….”pick me!”

The Picture Jasper I chose because of its unique central marking which looks like a cosmic eye. I knew Picture Jasper to be a particularly grounding stone that promotes Earth consciousness and I thought this stone had such potential to ground me during a period when there were significant changes taking place in the workplace; it sat on my desk and it did not disappoint!

Finally, the beautiful Pinolinth Sphere was one of those attractions where I did not know much about the crystal beforehand but I was drawn to its beauty and could tell the energy was one I needed in my life. Upon further research I found out it represented balance and optimism and who can’t use that every second of every day?! –  Chris Hajec, Hout Bay




I want to take this opportunity to thank Rockchic and the lovely staff who make it all possible.
By having you guys around I have had the ability and access to some of the most pristine crystal specimens and jewellery which has guided me in learning so much about gemology and mineralogy. In fact I have learnt more than I could have ever imagined, all made possible by Rockchic. Rockchic has helped my ability to craft and create my own pieces of crystal jewelry.
Anything I need or want for my personal collection I can always find it, and ontop of that its provided in only the highest standard of quality, from beads to string to the gemstones themselves.
The things I have bought from Rockchic each individually have a purpose in my life, and I will cherish and honour them all forever.
So thank you Rockchic and to many more visits!! – David Hendry
