Sand Dollar Fossil from Madagascar

This Sand Dollar Fossil comes from artisanal miners in Sakaraha, Madagascar. Artisanal fossil mining is largely unregulated, but typically has a low environmental impact and would be relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary hand polishes stones in Antananarivo, Madagascar. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at one major gem show in the United States. Every year the lapidary takes on a major charity project at a rural school. Previous projects have included installing bathrooms, creating a playground, and building a sunshelter for parents.

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.

In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.

In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar. In 2022, we plan to build a library with books in Malagassi and French.

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

Sand Dollar Fossil Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published July 2015  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Sand Dollars are the shell of an irregular sea urchin.  These marine creatures live in shallow ocean water and the shells will sometimes wash up on shore.  Occasionally the shells will be covered up and eventually transform into a fossil.  Energetically, they combine the essence of all fossils with the lore of Sand Dollars.  They evoke both land and water, lost civilizations and mermaids, religious ideals as well as the hope for money and prosperity.  Sand Dollar Fossils come in almost 50 different species varieties.  The majority of those sold on the market come from France, Madagascar, Morocco and the United States.

    I received the sand dollar fossil last Friday. It is a wonderful stone. It has a lovely harmonious and peaceful vibration. It’s like as if it says: “I just àm, I am provided for, and I expand in wondrous and joyful ways”. Love its color, its design and the incredible fine details of the design. Definitely one of my favorite stones in my collection :-)

    I placed a special order for some crystals with Julie for my niece who graduated with a BSc. in Marine Biology. Julie was so responsive and helpful in creating a beautiful and unique collection for my niece. She even went out to the ocean to see what “gift” the ocean would provide and sent along a lovely piece of coral as well. Julie is very knowledgeable and the crystals are gorgeous – with most included that I would not have thought of! She also put in detailed descriptions of each crystal. You cannot go wrong! Julie is so passionate about her work and it shows from every angle! Thank you, Julie for your kindness, thoroughness and patience — and for your huge collection of amazing crystals!
