Iris Crystals of Desert Hot Springs

Posted on May 19, 2024


Iris Crystals Inc. was founded in 2022 by Robert Raaf, upon moving to Desert Hot Springs, Southern California. Inspired by the natural beauty of the energy vortex and the natural healing power the desert resides atop, Robert yearned to utilize this healing energy source.  

With 25 years of experience in creating and designing jewelry for the LGBTQ+ community, Robert decided to combine his skills, passion for creative jewelry design, and love for crystals, with the power of this positive energy healing vortex.  

To provide the highest quality crystals, Robert spent months doing extensive research on mines across the globe. Early in his study, Robert discovered that many of these crystals found are known to be mined by children, and slave labor workers. 

Understanding that these crystals have the ability to emit and harbor powerful energies from their history, Robert knew he had to locate crystals that were ethically sourced, and fairly traded; to pursue his dream to produce and sell the finest quality products. 

With this in mind, each item is procured from some of the finest Ethically Sourced, Fair-Trade gemstone wholesalers; and Robert buys directly from family-owned mines whenever possible. 

Before Robert begins his wrapping process, he carefully cleanses each gem with an organic sage grown in his backyard, followed by a specialized Shaman clearing spray; derived from a combination of sacred organic sage, and essential oils. Every wire-wrapped crystal is then personally hand-wrapped directly above the Desert Hot Springs energy vortex, yielding highly unique, one-of-a-kind works. 

Because it’s nearly impossible to track the path of every crystal, Iris Crystals donates to international humanitarian organizations to help increase the quality of life.

Iris Crystals’ name derives from Robert’s precious puppy, Iris, who is named after the Goddess of Rainbows.
