Burhouse.com - the largest range of Gemstone, Crystal, Fossil and Jewellery products in the UK

About us


Founded in 1968 by Managing Director Clinton Burhouse, whilst still a student in London. The company initially concentrated on supplying the then popular lapidary hobby market. In 1974 the market demanded a development into calibrated stones and jewellery components.

We have spent over 30 years of continuous development in importing raw gemstone, crystals and minerals, carved stones, tumble-polished stones and jewellery items. Developing packaged products for museum and speciality shops and supplying promotional products; cover mounts etc in mass volume. All sold wholesale from our extensive catalogues available to retailers and manufacturers or by visiting our ever evolving showrooms.

We are constantly sourcing and developing new lines and regularly commission our customers ideas for production, with our overseas suppliers.

Importers and Wholesalers of gemstone products to the gift trade for over 35 years.
