About Us

You are here

Sue SullivanMy given name is Sue Sullivan, but I am known in the gem and crystal world as Gemstoner, a nick-name I received a long time ago that seemed fitting and has stayed with me. I am blessed with the ability to hear when the gems speak and am considered an intuitive healer. I have completed many classes in the healing arts and have done much research on Crystal Therapy.

I am a Certified Crystal Practitioner, attuned to Reiki Master, and a Reverend in the Universal Ministries Church, a nondenominational church founded in the truth of accepting the rights of all to follow their own personal beliefs without our intervention. As a reverend, I am available for weddings, hand-fastings, wiccan rites, commitment ceremonies and remembrance services. I also make myself available for individual Reiki or Chakra Balancing Sessions (by appointment only).

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have regarding the healing properties of gemstones.

 

About My Products

All of my gems and crystals are natural and have not been dyed or enhanced. They have been respectfully harvested from the earth. This has resulted in my customers being very pleased with the energy and quality of the gems they receive.

The items shown on my site are only a portion of all I have available. If an item is a one of a kind it will be noted as such and you will receive exactly what you have seen and ordered. When more than one is available, as in tumbled stones, earrings and other items, you will receive the same quality of what is shown, but each is unique in it's make-up.

It may be hard to decide to order gems from just looking at photos. Check out what my customers have to say about me in the Testimonial Area. I personally make most of the jewelry items you see on the site and custom orders can usually be accommodated.

About My Prices

Some of my items seem to be very reasonably priced when compared to other sites you may have visited. Is it due to lesser quality? Absolutely not! Items that have not been crafted by myself have been purchased through my association with the Fair Trade Federation which promotes free trade and healthy working conditions for artisan families all over the world.

Instead of settling for "sweat shop" types of jobs, these artisans reap the great economic benefit of selling their wares direct to me and no longer have to take pennies for their days of labor. Their living conditions become improved and their children start to receive education that most times has to be paid for, even at the elementary level. And, you, my customers, reap the added benefit of no middle-man mark-ups and receive a quality product that, when purchased, truly makes a difference in someone's life.

My Order Had a Special Note!

Sometimes when I am putting together an order, as odd as this may sound to some, the gems provide me with a message for the recipient. When this happens I will always pass that message along. The messages have no significance to me and I do not consider this to be psychic predicting. I am just blessed with the ability to hear when the gems speak. I do not consider myself a psychic, and I have not found a control to make it happen. It just comes when it comes.

The messages are vague, many times only one or two words, but they seem to be a key to revealing answers to questions a person may have, or unlocking the door to what they had not been able to see. So, if you have heard great claims about predicting, I am sorry to disappoint. If you would like predictions, you will need to look elsewhere. If you desire gems tailored to you specifically, that I can do :D

Foreign Orders

If you would like to place an order (going outside the U.S.), we now also ship to Canada. The postage or shipping varies so much by location and custom regulations that it is too unpredictable to set standard shipping for other countries.

If you are not in the US or Canada, please contact me and we'll see how we can best accomplish shipping to you. Thank you for your understanding.

The Studio

Located at 5628 W. Broadway in the historic downtown of Richmond, in northern Illinois, and open to the public. (one block west of Rt. 12, and 3 blocks south of Rt. 173).

Richmond is just an hour from the Chicago, Milwaukee and Rockford areas. You can learn more about Richmond from their community site.

 

Testimonials

What our customers have to say

I have been visiting Howl at the Moon ever since I first met Sue at a home demonstration when she passed out her business cards proudly announcing her new business to friends. Eagerly I accepted an invitation to visit as I was just getting into crystals. With Sue as a mentor, your knowledge will soar. She reminds us that everyone is constantly growing and learning. This little unassuming shop has grown into a metaphysical Disneyland, offering all types of guidance and knowledge, and everyone is welcome.  Rock On Sue!

Good Morning! I got my crystals yesterday- they are bigger and more beautiful than the pictures! They have great energy!
Paula from Miami, FL
Well I can give you feedback on my moonstone bracelet.... I always suffer from menstrual cramps..really bad...so the other week, when it was 'time'... I put it on, and honest to god..I barely felt a pain...I was actually away at Niagara falls at the time and managed to enjoy myself when otherwise I wouldn't...So whether it's a coincidence or not, I don't care:) All I know is I had one virtually pain free month!!!
Leah from New York, NY
