But I took a detour before finding my way back to my happiness and life purpose to be the voice of the stones.
I was born in Paris, France.
I always loved the stones.I wanted to be a gemologist before I knew what the word meant.
I grew up in an open-minded non spiritual family in Paris. My father worked a lot but also took us traveling. I was lucky to have been exposed to the world at a young age.
I hold a bunch of certifications and 2 Master Degrees: one in Modern History from the Sorbonne in Paris & one in Tourism & Hospitality Management from New York University. I enjoyed a rewarding career in luxury marketing in Manhattan and San Francisco.
I also studied several schools of spirituality and energetic healing modalities such as Reiki, ReconnectiveTM Healing, Clarity BreathworkTM and from several Crystal Healing schools. I learned from the best, Katrina Raphael and Naisah Ahsian are amongst my favorite teachers.
I am spiritual and business minded. I am grounded in real life while aiming to live a heart centered life, be happy and help others find their happiness. I am passionate about helping people in deep ways, on their transformation's journey.

Over the past decade, I have worked with thousands of people, helping them find the right stones for their emotional or spiritual healing at my large crystals & well-being center that I owned in New York.
In creating that business, my goal was provide a special place for people to open up, connect with their heart and body, through the stones and different teachings.
Almost 15 years ago, at a small gem show in San Francisco, I unexpected felt stones like for the first time. My own purpose and intuitive abilities awoke.
Since then, I have surrounded myself with thousands of stones.
Trust me, I know how stones feel, what they can do when we allow ourselves to feel.
Then and now, my power tool is going back to the Earth and nature, using crystals and minerals. They help me feel connected to myself and my heart, deepen my meditation, love and feel loved. They are my foundation.
Luxury QuARTz was created to be the bridge between stones and individuals seeking their unique beauty and powers.
Cephora is a crystal intuitive who can match your energies with stones that best support your life.
I am a Earth lover and activist. Travelling is another other passion of mine and the world my curiosity. My most recent amazing trip was to discover Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar and Bali. A bit of "Eat, Pray, Love", a lot of spiritual journey and personal healing. We all deserve some self-love sometimes, it's good to allow it.
After 2 years in Denver, Colorado, I have expanded our activities back to Europe, based in South of France. Today, I live between Antibes and Denver Colorado surrounded by loved ones and many many pieces of art from the Earth of course.
I am currently writing 2 books and creating a space for the feminine energies to expand and be nourished.
One of my belief is that the world of energy is subtle, omnipresent and very powerful but sometimes we only understand the world we can see.
Author & Teacher Katrina Raphael urges:
“We need every conscious human on the planet to be grounding high frequency energy into the world right now! [ ]The purpose of stones and minerals is to GROUND CONSCIOUSNESS INTO MATTER”. It is a powerful belief and stand! It is our choice and responsibility to learn and utilize the powers that are at our disposal for the highest good of All.
