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.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

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.

    I received my order today, and all I can say is WOW!! These are some seriously stunning stones. I am overjoyed with these!!

    I wasn’t expecting to be as taken by with the black moonstone as I am. I bought it mostly out of curiosity. It is utterly captivating to me. I also love that the peach moonstones feel as silky as they look! Plus the sparkles are beyond dreamy.

  7. Susan A (Ohio) (verified owner)

    Thank you for all the lovely crystals you chose for my order. All four of the Moonstones are amazing. The White is alive with blue rainbows! The Rainbow and Tourmaline Moonstones have them too, and the Black Moonstone has several full spectrum rainbows. The Black and White do go nicely together.

    I’ve spent time with almost all of them and each one has been a unique interaction. I’ve held my friends’ stones and in general been in stores, but these have a particular sense to them. Even when I’m not with them, I want to be. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. :)))

  24. Beth S. (Kentucky) (verified owner)

    Oh, what a gorgeous Black Moonstone! It’s much bigger than I expected and feels weighty, mysterious, and pleasingly smooth in my hand. The interplay of black – a more true, dark black than I expected – swirling pale patterning, and vibrant Moonstone-sheen is fascinating. This crystal fairly vibrates with mysterious power. It already feels as attuned to the unknowns and mysteries specific to my own path as if my own dreams had delivered it to me. You were in your power when you chose this crystal, Julie. Thank you!

  25. Sarah M. (Arizona) (verified owner)

    I’m afraid you’ll keep seeing me more often than you’d like But I really loved the two Crystal’s u sent me and they felt right so I will be coming back. I also wanted to thank you for the wonderful tea very nice surprise and truly appreciated. Thank you for all you do

    I received the stones today, and the first words out of my mouth were “oh, wow”. They are all amazing! The black moonstone caught my eye since I’ve seen many different pictures of black moonstone, but yours stood apart by being actually black with beautiful banding. I was just drawn to them. And it is so, so beautiful in person!
