Employment At Mama's

Following her passion, Laura Randolph, owner and president of Mama's Minerals, started selling crystal gemstones and geodes at arts and crafts fairs around the Southwest in 1985.

Mama's Minerals prides itself on its knowledgeable customer service, honed over more than two decades in the rocks and minerals business. You'll find a universe of interesting and beautiful mineral treasures and other products - authentic fossils, natural minerals, metal detectors and prospecting supplies, metaphysical supplies... and beads, beads and more beads!

We add to our product line on a regular basis, so check back often to find new planetary treasures.

Community Support and Action

We can all help change the world for the better through our individual actions. At Mama's Minerals, we give back to our community in a variety of ways. For example, we support education by offering free rock, mineral, and fossil classes to area students. We are also a firm believer in recycling.

Mama's Minerals donates to and collects donations for a variety of local and regional non-profits, and we are firm believers in volunteerism.

Every year, Mama's Minerals holds an Arts and Crafts Fair, Alternative Health Fair, Kids Fun with Rocks Day and many other events. Most of these events are free for the public and the beaders, vendors, creators and artisans.

Field Trips and Classes

We offer a variety of free classes in Geology, Metaphysics and Beading that anyone can sign up for, as well as specialized Earth Science classes for schools and groups (such as the Girl Scouts).

If you're a teacher or group leader and would like to set up a free field trip to Mama's Minerals, call us at (505) 266-8443.


Recycling is a major part of the operations at Mama's Minerals' two retail stores and our mail order department, so don't be surprised when the package you receive is packed in a reused box and contains packing materials such as shredded paper, old newspapers, and twice-used (but still functional) bubble wrap. We've arranged with local businesses to supply us with their shredded office papers and cast-off boxes, so that world resources are preserved Ė- and landfill areas are less overburdened! You can help, too, by recycling the box and filler your order came in.
