Petrified Wood Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Petrified Wood

Ethical sourcing is a constantly evolving process.  When we know better, we do better.

If the original sourcing for the stone still passes Moonrise Crystals’ current standards, it will be restocked as soon as possible.

If the original sourcing is no longer acceptable, it will be restocked when/if a better supplier can be found.

Know where your crystals come from

This Petrified Wood is from miners in the White Mountain Fort Apache Reservation in Arizona, USA. The reservation is next to Petrified Forest National Part, where it is illegal to mine or gather the fossils. The reservation does have an active mining district that produces Petrified Wood.  Based on the size of my supplier, it seems likely that it is legally mined, but a more transparent supply chain is needed.  In general, mining for Petrified Wood tends to have a low environmental impact and is relatively safe for miners.

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.
