I have 2 pieces of Amethyst in my hand, they look identical, they are both purple and have the same shape. The price is different, the first piece costs 5€ and the other 20€. The origin of the cheapest Amethyst is unknown, the Amethyst that costs 20€ is sourced ethically, meaning the mines operate according to strict health and safety regulations, there is no child labour involved and fair prices are payed.
Many crystal lovers are not aware that the crystals they feel so connected to, are sometimes mined under poor circumstances for little money. In some cases even by children. Often, crystal jewelry is bought for their specific energy and properties. How can we connect to the healing values and energy of a crystal, when it’s found or handled in very poor circumstances?
I want to raise undeniable awareness on unethical mining and offer an alternative to buy honest jewelry. I buy from the mines directly and strive to know the complete journey of the crystal, from the mine till it arrives in Amsterdam and is made into my jewelry. You can support me on my journey, buy my jewelry and share the story of these stones.
Since you read this story till this far, I have a gift for you.
