Our History

28 years ago, business owner Mark Avis began trading in stones hand-picked from Madagascar, and eventually Hidden Earth was born.

Mark regularly travelled to Madagascar to select stunning fossils and crystals in person, carefully developing his keen eye for unique, high-quality minerals.

Although Mark started out in the industry by sourcing high-grade Celestite and Natural Citrine, the company slowly expanded to seek out other stones as supplies of these minerals grew scarce in Madagascar.

Hidden Earth continues to source high-quality Labradorite, Quartz, and Ammonites from Madagascar, which have always been firm favourites of our customers.

Hidden Earth soon developed a reputation for selling unique fossils and crystals at affordable prices, both locally at our unit in England, and abroad. 

For many years, Mark regularly sold high-quality minerals at rock and gem shows around the world, including the famous Tucson Gem and Mineral Show

Nowadays, Hidden Earth operates solely from our UK base, although we continue to ship internationally.

Who We Are: A Small Family Team

Mark has has passed his love for fossils and crystals onto his daughter, Alisha, who now works closely with the business as it continues to expand.

Our close-knit family team also includes Mark’s wife, Jenny, and Mark’s father, Gerald: as three generations working together, we put a lot of care and energy into our business.

Moving On: Crystals From All Over The World

Hidden Earth has now branched out to find other exciting stones sourced from all over the world, whilst maintaining our specialism in Madagascan minerals.

We have built an excellent relationship with a family of artisans in India, whom we work closely with to source rare stones such as our bespoke Amethyst Agate range.

Currently, we are very excited about our new Indian Fossil Wood project: we have searched the country for the best Petrified Wood and are very happy with the quality of what we have found.

We also have strong connections with suppliers in Brazil, where we have been sourcing some stunning Quartz points

What We Do

Using the connections we have built with mineral dealers and artisans all over the world, we carefully select the best crystals and fossils available and ship them to our UK base. 

Once the stones arrive in the UK, the magic really happens: in our specialist workshop, we use high-grade machinery to hand-polish the stones until they shimmer, sparkle, and gleam.

With many years of experience in fine-tuning stones until their true natural beauty shines through, we ensure the smooth polish and finish on our products is of the highest quality.
