Crystal World and Prehistoric Journeys is owned by Tom Kapitany.
Crystal World grew organically – after completing a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Botany and Geology, Tom went to work with his brothers and set up a rare species plant nursery called Collectors Corner .
This nursery specializes in rare Plants such Cacti, Orchids, Bonsai, Carnivorous Plants and Bromeliads.
It was in this shop that he started to deal with Crystals, Fossils, Minerals and Meteorites, eventually Opening Crystal World in 1999.
As well as an interest in Plant Molecular Biology, primarily genetic engineering, Tom loves to travel.
Crystal World is prominent in the field of mining for gems, minerals and fossils and holds over 40 mining tenements and exploration licenses Australia-wide. We mine crystals, quartz, molybdenite, mookaite, amethyst, fossils, tiger iron , Tourmaline, Aquamarine and other commercial and high grade mineral and fossil specimens.
We also manufacture a wide range of products for the Fossil, Lapidary, Mineral, Meteorite and Museum quality specimens in Australia and overseas. We import fine quality crystals, minerals, gems and fossils from many countries.
We are a major wholesale exporter of minerals, lapidary gems and fossils world wide with agents and suppliers in many countries. We attend the larger international mineral and Fossils shows including Tucson, Denver, Changsha and occasionally St Marie aux Mines in France.
We export container loads of rough Australian minerals from our mining leases to USA , India China South Africa , Germany , Indonesia where it is used as Lapidary gems.
Always expect something new when you visit Crystal World. Our modern warehouse is stocked to the brim with 100 of tonnes of specimens from abroad and locally. New shipments arrive weekly and can be anything from a small parcel to a 20 ft sea container. Its all in a days work.
In order to continue to expand our product line, we are constantly searching for new mineral localities. Mining locations generally operate for a few years only and once closed, minerals from these mines can become scarce as new localities will generally offer minerals with variations. For this reason older collections are an excellent source of these once common materials. Crystal World is constantly searching for new minerals, if you know of a collection please contact us for an appraisal of its value. We are always looking to buy Lapidary gems, Meteorites, and Fossils. We are particularly interested in buying older Australian Collections. .
We always strictly operate within the legislative framework of relevant jurisdictions, and maintain close scientific relationships with many University and Museums .
