Ethically Sourced

Black Tourmaline from Brazil

This Black Tourmaline comes from small-scale mines in Aracuat, Minas Giras, Brazil. These mines have a low environmental impact.

This mine and gem dealer are a family business in Brazil. The family owns a small Lithium Quartz mine. They also have relationships with miner co-ops and lapidary co-ops around Brazil. The mother of the family is particularly passionate about ethical sourcing. All workers are safe and paid fair wages.

I first met this source at the 2020 Tucson Gem Show. I was surprised to see a sign that advertised “ethical sourcing” and immediately went to investigate. I discovered a Brazilian family business, run by a father, mother, and their sons. The business has existed for over 30 years, but recently the mother became concerned about conditions in Brazilian mines and polishing factories, and their effect on local communities. She gradually transformed the business following the principles of Fair Trade and articulated her own ethical values. Among these values are: to be environmentally friendly, work with miners co-ops, have a participatory workplace, develop long-term relationships, sponsor education for miners’ children, and respect cultural identities.

I had a long conversation with this inspiring woman, discussing both our own businesses as well as the larger industry. We already shared many of the same values, but I was intrigued by her commitment to respecting cultural identities. In Brazil, mines are often located on land owned by indigenous peoples. Often, miners are from somewhere else and usually don’t have any vested interest in protecting the local environment or distributing wealth into the local economy. To respect cultural identities means to do business with local indigenous peoples, rather than transient outsiders.

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.

    My crystals are here and I am just so happy! They are all so beautiful!! I am especially obsessed with this piece of citrine. I cannot wait to continue my crystal collection with you! This package made my day and I’ve already enjoyed the tea. I just wanted to say thank you x1000. I can feel the love and good intentions and this has really turned my week around!

  3. Samantha S. (Illinois) (verified owner)

    I love, love, love them all. Thank you!! The chip in the Vatican Stone is not even noticeable — just adds a little good texture — but I do appreciate you asking me about it before sending it. And the other stones are all simply stunning. I couldn’t be happier with everything. Thank you so much!!

    Thank you so very much for the beautiful crystals! And for the “tea for two”! I am excited to begin my crystal journey and want to thank you so much!
