Buddstone Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Buddstone

Know where your crystals come from

This Buddstone comes from South Africa.  It may be a byproduct of artisanal gold mining.

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.

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.

Buddstone Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published February 2015  •  Updated June 2022  •  Read Time: 5 minutes
Buddstone is a soft metamorphic rock found only in South Africa.  It is often found growing with Verdite, another green metamorphic rock.  Both stones get their coloring from Fuchsite, and sometimes the stones are confused by sellers who use the names interchangeably.  They are also sometimes confused with Green Jade because all three have a similar buttery texture when polished.  But, Buddstone is a wonderful crystal to get to know in its own right.  It offers us the wisdom of our ancestors, stretching all the way back to our ancient grandfathers and grandmothers who lived as hunters and gathers at the dawn of time.  It is a phenomenal crystal ally for healing ancestral trauma in ourselves and our community.

    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. :)))
    Your efforts to ethically source are beyond and years ahead of what most companies do, but thank you for being so dedicated to moving in a concientious direction. I will continue to support your company and share it with my friends.
