Ethically Sourced Crystals
What makes all of our crystals ethical?
Crystals & minerals are not registered as fair trade products therefore we invest a lot of time & effort making sure all of our crystals are mined & carved under ethical conditions and that the workers are safe & receive a fair wage.
We mostly buy our crystals from one supplier who go out of their way to support and use small companies or independent families. They tend not to commission products from factories in China. This is important to us.
We believe everyone deserves to have access to affordable ethical high grade crystals. We hand pick almost every crystal that comes into our shop….even the tumble stones. Louise will empty a huge bag and select the best there is available at the time. Energy is everything.
I would now like to introduce to you a blog post written by Hibiscus Moon
This is the important part…
“In my extensive research I’ve found that specimen mining usually has little or no DIRECT impact on our planet.
Often times, specimens are collected as a by-product to ore mining where mines have been dug to get at coal, copper, aluminum, gold, etc. for other items our society seems to have no problem with. In addition, some of what is sold on the market are simply recycled specimens from estate sales. The ULTIMATE in recycling!”
