Our founder: Ulymar Rocha

Who Are We?

Ulymar Rocha founded StoneBridge Imports to share the beauty of gemstones with the world. Growing up in a gemstone mining area of Brazil, Uly has been immersed in the world of stones and minerals since he was a kid. It was how his affinity for these natural wonders grew and took root.

So when he moved to Canada and settled in the Waterloo region in 2002, he continued dealing in gems with the help of his wife and son. This was the early beginnings of Stonebridge Imports, now known as one of the largest rocks and minerals wholesalers in Ontario.

Current owner: Arthur Rocha

The Next Generation

His son - Arthur - continues his father’s mission to help retailers across North America bring the best of nature to their local stores. And with a fresh perspective, help artisans and entrepreneurs realize their vision.

Arthur grew up around rocks and crystals. In his spare time, he does rock climbing. It must be fate… His last name “Rocha” is Portuguese for “rock”!

What Others Say About the SBI Experience

What Makes Us Unique

Stonebridge Imports was started to fill a niche in the crystal supplier market. Low-quality stones, limited selection, long order processing, and little assistance were problems that many local crystal shops faced.

Stonebridge Imports relieves all this stress on business orders by introducing modern commerce expectations to customers. No more haggling, no more minimum quantities, no more months-long delivery times. Shopping for your crystal needs became as easy as shopping for groceries.

Collectors, retailers, crystal healers, reiki practitioners, decorators, and craft makers all over Canada and the US trust us for their growing crystal needs.

Our storefront

What fuels our growth is our team's unparalleled knowledge of stones and geological formations. Gemstones, rocks, and crystals are second nature; our staff is the right resource to talk to if you want to know about the quality, value, physical properties, history, lore, and metaphysical benefits of specific stones.

Stonebridge Imports is the go-to for everything crystal-related. As well as creating a robust community of business owners to share ideas and grow together.

We pride ourselves on being more than just a crystal supplier. We're a partner to each of our customers, and we do our best to help them as they grow their businesses. And we give an outlet for local artisans to sell their products through our Local Luxuries program.
