Healing crystals, that are even marketed as nothing less than basically being part of making the world a better place (which they surely might be), should definitely be checked to come from ethical and sustainable sources. If not expressed clearly from the people selling them I invite us all to ask about it. And ask again if the answer is not crystal clear, so to speak..
A minor issue as far as quantities counts perhaps – there are certainly bigger things to question in the world of minerals and crystals than this one (like conflict minerals in cell phones, computers, electronics etc – actually, when we’re at it, check this out, if nothing else as a source of inspiration and maybe a little teaser to learn more) – but still an important awareness-question, and definitely a moral one as well.
Can I just ask first where the crystals come from/how they are “harvested”? I’m sure all good, but didn’t find any mentioning of it on the homepage (as far as I could see) and just want to be sure before purchasing.
Thank you for the reply Jessy, it somehow got stuck in my spam folder but glad I found it!
Could you just send a bit more information on “The ethical sourcing of our crystals… …and we work only with lapidaries who adhere to the ethical mining and labor practices.“-parts? Like, is there a framework for ethically harvesting crystals or what are “the ethical mining and labor practices” in use? I appreciate that crystal harvesting might not have a regulation “in force”(?), so maybe just some information about how you monitor the fairness and sustainability in the harvesting or alike? Would be super helpful!
