OUR STORY

WHAT IS PRANA?


PRANA is Sanskrit & refers to Energy, Life & Breath.

In other traditions,it is known as Chi, Ki or Mana.


Prana is the universal sea of energy that infuses & vitalizes all matter. This sea of energy unites into sub-atomic particles & atoms, which become the basic building blocks of all matter manifesting the physical world. So, every atom, molecule, & cell is an extension of prana, just as waves are extensions of the sea that lies beneath them.

ABOUT YOUR PRANA





Our why - "To inspire & open eyes to the beauty of our world”



Our purpose - "We created Your PRANA Mineral Gallery so we may share our passion for the beauty & magnificence of the natural world with every soul. So you may witness the incredible artistic design of the earth itself, allowing you to see the power of what is possible.

Presenting only the most exquisite artforms - Your PRANA Mineral Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the beauty of Mother Nature through our amazing collection of crystals, pounamu (greenstone) carvings, mineral art, bronze sculptures & jewellery. Everything we present & create is infused with a deep seeded sense of love.


All pieces are handcrafted & set to the highest standard - We create our own pieces in our Creative Studio & also present magnificent pieces of mineral art on behalf of artists throughout NZ.


Outstanding presentation - Each piece receives the utmost care & we ensure our packaging is impeccable for you. Depending on the stone / type of artwork & size of the pieces, we may detail it with petals, gift complimentary stones, scent the packaging & write a handwritten note detailing the pieces meaning, origin & history. Gifting you a unique experience infused with love.


Sustainably focused - We have a strict recycle & reuse process. Wherever possible, we avoid using bubble wrap. In almost all instances we use paper, wood wool or card to wrap & present our pieces. However, some occasions do call for it & in those cases, we only use recycled bubble wrap. We also encourage you to return your packaging so we can either reuse or recycle it on your behalf.


Moral compass All we present is cleansed regularly – physically & energetically, created / sourced with the highest of ethics & all the stones we present are in their natural / unaltered state. The artists we present are all aligned with our morals & you witness this in the art they present. We desire to pass wisdom down through the generations. Honesty is held in the highest regard. We respect & hold space for every connection & are always compassionate. We embrace gratitude daily for who we are, what we present & the journeys encountered.


5-star customer reviewsWe are happy to source pieces for you, gift you all the knowledge you desire & create custom pieces for you – we go the extra mile. Our customers also often refer to our gallery as a space where they feel at home – we hope you do too! Many customers have become great friends of PRANA over the years & they are a testament to how we go above & beyond for everyone. No question is silly & no task is too hard. Many also refer friends, because they know we will take care of their every desire. No doubt you will become a great friend of PRANA too.


Community driven - We present regular educational workshops (online & in our gallery) on our pieces so you can learn about their history, origin, meanings & creation. We also support many great causes locally such as fundraisers for schools & charitable events. Education always has been & will remain one of our highest priorities.


Locally owned & operated - Northland is our home & we love sharing the magic of all we present with you. Our gallery is the only one in Northland presenting an exquisite display of earth’s creations & fine mineral artwork, hence we seek to present the best to all those that live & visit this beautiful region.


Our building is a piece of artwork itself - When constructed it was nominated for the Property Council NZ Architectural Awards under Excellence. The gallery is a lush wide-open space, surrounded by gardens with decks on all 3 sides. 3 of our ‘walls’ are actually enormous glass sliding doors that open the doors so wide, it appears as if 1 wall & 4 corners are supporting the roof – it’s impeccable architecture. A must-visit if you have a passion for great buildings. Plus the natural lighting couldn’t be more perfect for displaying our pieces.
