Welcome to Eloise Minn

My youthful passion that became a lifelong interest, has now become Eloise Minn, and I am so incredibly happy to be here, sharing my love of gemstones with you.


For as long as I can remember I have been aware of the frequencies emanating from gemstones. As a young child I could feel their vibrations in the palms of my hands and this feeling fascinated me. I would seek out gemstones wherever I could and by my early teens I was visiting hippy stores to read about the metaphysical properties of gemstones. Soon I was taking books home to study them. There was so much to learn, so many powerful vibrational minerals with differing subgroups, I found it hard to hold all the information in my mind. This made choosing new gemstones a bit of a struggle, and I would stay with one gemstone for probably longer than I should.

Then I realised I could choose the right gemstone intuitively. Wandering around the store, looking at all the beautiful stones, one would seem to call to me, and no matter how much I tried others, I knew this stone, seeming to shine more brightly, was the one for me. When I returned home, I would look up the gemstone in my books, and of course, it was exactly what I needed! Understanding this was enormously liberating. Not only because I did not have to read whole books every time to discover the stone I needed, but because I could not deny my intuition. This second intelligence, that is at the heart of the gemstone’s teaching, is so incredibly real and palpable in gemstones.

I bought a book that was just photographs of gemstones and realised I could access the same connection looking at the pictures. Now I was truly emancipated. I could find my stone through the images alone, and immediately know from my books why I was drawn to it. I had found a conversation in a language I did not know I understood, that was held within the gemstones. And this is why I have created the beautiful watercolour images from photographs, in the Library at Eloise Minn, so you can experience the same.

It has been many years since those days, and I have been using gemstones to understand my intuitive self ever since. I have learnt so much, and my relationship with them is so much more confident now, because they have never let me down. They are always aligned with truth, and only want to help. All I have to do is let them give me their wisdom. The kindness and gentleness of their persuasion is subtle. They will never force us, only nudge us gently towards the higher good and the most auspicious choices we can make for ourselves. I have found that there is always more refinement, and maybe in life the reward for growth is to be ready for greater challenges and more growth, until we become so much stronger, we find ourselves calmer and more peaceful in our personal objectives and worldly pursuits.

You may enjoy your personal growth so much you look for it, look forward to engaging with the gemstones even when your life is running smoothly, and you are exactly where you want to be. You may enjoy the gentle evolution even when you don’t need it, because communicating with the gemstones is something you would like to always have in your life. This is what has happened to me, and my improved intuition and calmer intellect has been a boon in my life. I am so glad I discovered the gemstones, and I am so incredibly happy to be sharing their wisdom with you.

Welcome to Eloise Minn, I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have and still do.
