Black Moonstone Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Black Moonstone

Know where your crystals come from

This Black Moonstone comes from artisanal miners in Madagascar. The exact deposit is unknown, but it is likely in Vakinankaratra. “Moonstone” is a name given to a variety of iridescent feldspar minerals. Black Moonstone is most often a gray Microcline. Artisanal mining for feldspar minerals like Microcline tends to be surface mining with a low environmental impact and is relatively safe for miners.

This lapidary hand polishes stones in Antananarivo, Madagascar. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at one major gem show in the United States. Every year the lapidary takes on a major charity project at a rural school. Previous projects have included installing bathrooms, creating a playground, and building a sunshelter for parents.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries
I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.

In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.

In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar. In 2022, we plan to build a library with books in Malagassi and French.
