Brandberg Amethyst Healing Properties

This tumbled Brandberg Amethyst has a spiritual energy unlike any other! Pure dark purple Amethyst grow intertwined with grey Smoky Quartz and Clear Quartz, combining and amplifying high spirituality with grounded practicality. It is mined near one of mankind's most ancient holy sites, the Brandberg or "Fire Mountain" of Namibia. The mountain is covered in tens of thousands of rock art drawings dating as far back as 3000 BCE. This Amethyst is mined 20 miles away, close enough to soak up the spiritual energy, but far enough away to protect the actual holy mountain.

Ethically Sourced Brandberg Amethyst

Know where your crystals come from

This Amethyst comes from small-scale Amethyst mines on the Goboboseb Mountains, Namibia.  The mines are 21 miles away from Brandberg Mountain, where mining is illegal because the mountain is considered sacred by indigenous peoples.  Most Amethyst mining occurs underground and has a low environmental impact.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

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.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

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.
