You'll be sure to smile the first time you hold a Cinabrite heart. Nicknamed "Cherry Blossom Stone" they have a fresh and youthful energy that makes us feel ever hopeful. These hand polished hearts have sharp points and distinct curves, with a unique sprinkle of pink across them. These are a great choice for anyone exploring self-love. They would also be an incredible addition to a grid for world peace or love on a large scale.
This mine and lapidary is a small business in Peru. The main business is the polishing factory which focuses on Peruvian stones. The owner was a biologist and environmental activist in his first career, and brings this passion for ethics to his current business. He is particularly proud of his legal contracts, safety standards, and worker’s compensation package. He also has a small mining claim which he mines in the most environmentally-conscious way possible.
I met this source online during the pandemic in 2021. The owner sent out an email to crystal stores around the world introducing his company. While most of the email talked about the quality and price of the stones, I was immediately drawn to his fair trade principles, which included legal contracts, health insurance and pension plans, safety standards, etc. This kind of language is very rare! I immediately contacted him and place an order. We have had many conversations on What’s App about ethical issues in Peru and around the world. I love speaking with him because he thinks like a scientist and an environmental activist. So we don’t have to tread cautiously, we can speak boldly.
He asked if I thought the world would support an ethical crystal mine. I told him I couldn’t speak for the world, but that I personally would. A few weeks later I became a financial investor. My first crystal order would include Black Tourmaline and Epidote that came from “my” ethical mine.
