Let us introduce ourselves and tell you a bit about us!

Senior geologist Andrew Clark, and Founder Fiona Nagy with ROXBOX parcels

Hey there, I'm Fiona, the geologist behind ROXBOX. Growing up, I was that kid who'd rather watch National Geographic than cartoons. My parents always encouraged me to explore my interests in rocks, oceans and everything in between.

Fast forward, 4 university degrees later, and I'm still hooked on learning.

ROXBOX started from this simple idea:
Share this buzz with everyone, especially kids. We're all about getting hands-on with science, and guess what? We're the only ones in Australasia doing this with real-deal crystal mining buckets.

So, that's us. We're ROXBOX, and we're here to make learning about the earth fun!

    A career change

    Being made redundant from my corporate job in 2023 was scary, but it got me thinking! What did I want to do with my life? How could I combine my passion for the sciences with my experience in marketing and business?

    A vision & a friend

    It had to be crystal mining buckets! What a perfect way to make learning fun for others - and to introduce NZ to a new concept! One evening I shared my vision with my friend Dan, who messaged me the following day saying 'it wasn't the beersie talking - I want to help bring this dream to life!'.

  • logo evolution and prototypes roxbox

    prototypes

    Among day jobs and freelancing, we got straight to work! I dreamed about nothing but logos, crystals and boxes for weeks. With my marketing background and Dan's illustration skills we made waves and launched ROXBOX in 3 months!

  • the workshop

    The Workshop

    Enter the workshop! Where the magic happens. It may not be fancy - but it's function over fashion you know? Still, we're gradually outgrowing this space and can't wait to move into a warehouse one day!

  • people at mission bay looking for sapphires and crystals at roxbox event

    LIFT OFF!

    We joined forces with the charity 'Gumboot Friday', and launched ROXBOX by running a fundraiser/treasure hunt at Mission Bay in Auckland.

    We were blown away when 600+ mums, dads, aunties and children came along!

    From Rags to 'Riches'

    Ok we're far from rich in the monetary sense. BUT, we do consider ourselves rich - because we're doing what we love and we're supported by amazing our community (that's you!).

    All we want, is to bring grins to the faces of our hunters and to help them discover a love of learning.
