Ethical Sourcing

OUR INTENTION

It is our belief that crystals are precious gifts from the earth and that they should be accessible to all. We strive to keep our prices affordable, while supporting fair wages for miners and employees.

ETHICAL SOURCING

We take pride in providing ethically sourced crystals & minerals.

What does this mean?

We are mindful of where we source our GEMZ and the impact it has on the local community, environment, and laborers. At this time, the term “ethically sourced” is not regulated by a government agency (we hope this will change in the future). There is no certification or set of standards you must meet to use the term, therefore it is subjective and can mean different things to different people. For us, it means:

  • sourcing responsibly and consciously

  • staying up to date on social, political and environmental issues in the areas we source

  • when possible, working directly with mine owners and small family owned mines. This allows us to have more information about wages and working conditions. (We’ve actually visited mines and met quite a few of the miners! pretty cool, right?)

  • refusing to purchase conflict minerals or minerals that do harm to surrounding communities

  • building a rapport with our third party suppliers, & working with individuals who are just as intentional as us. (Our suppliers are like family—we don’t source with just anyone! 💎)
