Apricot Agate Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Apricot Agate

When we know better, we do better. Ethical sourcing is a constantly evolving process. If the original sourcing for the stone still passes Moonrise Crystals’ current standards, it will be restocked as soon as possible. If the original sourcing is no longer acceptable, it will be restocked when/if a better supplier can be found.

Know where your crystals come from

This Apricot Agate comes from artisanal miners in Botswana. Artisanal mining for Carnelian and other Agates typically has a low environmental impact and is relatively low risk for miners.  Botswana is one of the few countries that has adopted environmentally friendly and sustainable mining practices. Botswana also has the safest mining standards in Africa.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Apricot Agate Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published February 2016  •  Updated August 2022  •  Read Time: 8 minutes
Apricot Agate is a sweet little crystal.  It is found in Botswana near some vivid orange Carnelians, and so is sometimes marketed as “Pink Carnelian.”  It is a natural pink Agate, with a distinctive pastel-pinkish-orange color.  By contrast, most of the dyed Pink Agate on the market is a garish hot pink.  Apricot Agate has an energy that evokes “home” the place where we are most comfortable and where we are surrounded by love.  It has a gentle and kind energy that encourages us to be good to ourselves and to follow the Golden Rule in how we treat others.  It can also be a fantastic choice for anyone exploring family issues related to boundaries and/or codependency.

    I am so happy to say that I got my *beautiful* crystals on Saturday!! Julie, they were so gorgeously packaged, I was in awe!! The care and attention you took was apparent and appreciated. You even put the info cards in alphabetical order!! The package was in my mailbox all morning with the sun out in full. I opened them around 11am, definitely time for them to get nice and warm. So when I opened everything, all the stones were warm to the touch and just felt so welcoming and comforting. I took a little video of them in my palm outside in the and they looked breathtaking!!!

    Gorgeous agate and boy was it powerful. I chose this stone to do some shadow work around a parental relationship. Within 12 hours of having it next to my body the crystal shattered and along with it some barriers that were keeping my work from moving forward. It shattered and broke that wound Wide open allowing me to process what was buried deep within. Thank you, Julie I needed that.

    I am still happily enjoying the Apricot Agate that I bought from you not too long ago and I love the one you picked for me. In the description you provided for the stone, it says that it “evokes the essence of home” and I noticed that the crystal you picked out for me is literally shaped like a little house lol (square on the bottom and triangular at the top). I’m not sure if that was intentional, but either way I love it. This is significant to me because my Zodiac sign is Cancer, so I love anything that is “homey” lol. And when I saw that in the description of the stone, I just knew I had to have it lol. So, anyway I trust your judgement when it come to picking stones.
