Ethically Sourced Serpentine

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 Serpentine comes from a small-scale Copper mine in Peru

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This mine and lapidary is a family business in Peru. The father owns a small Copper mine and the mining byproducts are polished and exported by a wholesale business managed by his son.

I purchased from this source a few times during the earlier years of my business. They sell a variety of polished stones from Peru, including tumbled stones. At first, the owner was never available while I was shopping. I spoke with various workers, but because of the language barrier, I got conflicting information. It was obvious to me that the source was closely linked with a Copper mine, based on the minerals and location. Research online seemed to link this source with a tech company in Hong Kong that makes a mining app for large industrial mines. I decided that I wouldn’t do business with them again unless I met the owner and got clear information.

In 2019, I finally met the owner, and happily, he is bilingual. He shared stories with me about his father who owns a Copper mine. Most Copper mines are large industrial mines owned by multi-national corporations. I was surprised but pleased to hear that this is a family-run business.

What is Ethical Sourcing?

Selection Process: The stone I select for you will be carefully chosen for its beauty and appeal. If combined with other stones, I always take time to choose stones that look and feel good together.
