With recent current events bringing mining conditions into the headlines, we wanted to share our beliefs in fair trade and responsibly harvested stones. We work with the small suppliers who treat their folks fairly–our Brazilian friend who visited us last week has even been a driving force to improve living conditions not only for the miners who work for him, but for miners throughout Brazil. We focus on stones and crystals that are ethically harvested, and not strip-mined through blasting.
We will not work with mass-produced stones that are by-products of huge mineral extraction companies. We hand pick every stone that we carry for its energy and beauty, with a conscious thought towards supporting the communities who harvest these beauties.
