Almandine Garnet Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Almandine Garnet

Know where your crystals come from

This Almandine Garnet comes from artisanal miners in Odisha, India. Artisanal mining for garnets typically has a low environmental impact and is relatively low risk for miners.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is owned by two long-time friends and business partners. Unusual for India, factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. It is also an exporter and sells exclusively at large gem shows.

I first met this source at the 2017 Denver Gem Show. Our first encounter was short since it was my last day of shopping and I had already spent most of my budget, but their polished stock was the highest quality I had ever seen. A few months later, we met again in Tucson and this time I made sure to visit them at the beginning of the show!

In 2019, I was able to sit down with both owners and have a lengthy conversation about sourcing. Unlike most lapidaries, they were willing to speak with me in-depth about how they ensure their business is ethical. We talked about individual mines in India as well as how they source from other countries. We also talked about how they treat their own workers and about the links between business, karma, and God. Their willingness to talk and their pleasure at the conversation made me eager to develop and deepen this relationship.

    I received my garnets, and the are all beautiful! It took a while to be able to see them in the sunlight due to terrible weather, but they were all stunning when I was finally able to. The almandine is huge and very sparkly in the sunlight! I love the freeform polygon shape.

    What a big, vibrant faceted Almandine Garnet this is. I love the fires in it, deep red in some lights and in others sparks of scarlet and rainbow brilliance. This Garnet seems to say, “My strength has unfathomable depths. Let me share it with you.”
