Soulmate Crystals partners with trusted suppliers who value ethical sourcing and fair trade. Our suppliers have extensive relationships with mines and traders developed from over 30 years industry experience. We are proud to work with these select partners who share our values of conscious collecting and respecting our sacred Earth.
It’s important to note the specimens within the crystal healing community are mostly by-products to ore mining that have been mined by small machinery or independently hand-mined with tools.
Unfortunately, there are ill-intentioned practices happening in select markets, in what is a largely unregulated industry. Based on our own research, specimen mining is much less extreme than strip mining and much less of an impact to the Earth and communities than the conflict minerals used in everyday technology products like mobile phones and computers that are owned by humans across the globe.
