I just received the crystals yesterday, and they are absolutely beautiful and radiate such good energy. I’ve been weary of purchasing crystals for myself and others for a while now because of ethical sourcing, but I’m so happy to have stumbled upon your business and am excited to be putting together my collection again. Thank you for doing what you do!

Ethically Sourced

Black Tourmaline from Brazil

This Black Tourmaline comes from artisanal miners in India. The exact deposit is unknown, but it is likely either in Jharkland or Rajasthan.  Black Tourmaline is mined in a variety of ways, from shaft to open-pit to underground.

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers are paid fairly. The Lapidary is also an exporter that sells at gem shows in the United States and Japan.

I first met this source at the 2014 Tucson Gem Show. It was my first buying trip for my own store and I was nervous. Most lapidary owners were brisk and impatient with my questions, especially when I asked about the mines and the supply chains. But one man stood out to me as particularly patient and kind. He had been a wholeseller for over twenty years, yet he was happy to meet someone brand-new to the industry.

He took time to talk to me about the stones. They came from his home country of India and he was able to tell me exactly which state or territory each one came from and some of the conditions at the individual mines. When I told him that I wanted to source ethically, he said that it would be difficult, but that it was a worthwhile challenge. He made me feel like I could succeed, both at ethical sourcing and at being a business owner. I looked forward to a long business relationship with him. Sadly, he died suddenly in 2016.

I stayed in touch with his family and in 2017 met his wife, teenage daughter, and his father. This three-generation family has picked up the pieces and learned how to run the business. His wife had never worked before, but she gracefully stepped into her new role as a business owner. Her father-in-law offers practical and moral support, but makes sure that everyone knows that SHE is the boss and that checks should be written directly to her. The family continues to be supportive of my efforts to ethically source. More than any other lapidary, they are willing to speak openly with me about the difficult parts of the industry. They have invited me to visit them in India, to visit the mines and their lapidary. The daughter is now a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate and is interested in reiki and other healing modalities. As she has grown up, she has become increasingly concerned about ethical issues.

Black Tourmaline Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2014  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Black Tourmaline is one of the best healing stones for grounding and protection.  Tourmaline is mined around the world, from gravel pits to deep underground.  While Tourmaline comes in every color, and black can be found in many varieties, the variety known as Schorl is always pure black.  Schorl is named after a small German village, on the western Ore Mountains, where Black Tourmaline used to be found inside Tin mines.  Black Tourmaline has a calm and relaxing presence.  It feels like having a quiet bodyguard walking beside you or guarding your door.  When Black Tourmaline is nearby, we know we are safe and all will be well.
