Shell Heart Healing Properties

These are the sweetest Shell hearts! They are white with a little swirl on one side the front, and have a pinkish blush on the back. The little swirl is so delicate it almost appears to be painted on, but it's fully-natural, showcasing Mother Nature beauty and the polishers' skill. They come from Madagascar which has a variety of marine fossils, including sand dollars, clam shells, and ammonites. If a shell is in one piece, it can be sold to collectors, but a broken one cannot. Rather than just leave the broken ones in a slag pile, polishers have taken pieces and polished them into hearts. Reminding us that we can always take the 'broken' parts of ourselves and polish lovingly until something new and more beautiful emerges.

Ethically Sourced Shell Heart

Know where your crystals come from

This Shell Fossil comes from artisanal miners in Mainterano, Madgascar.  They were broken pieces of fossils that may have otherwise been discarded, but have been repurposed by shaping them into hearts.  Mining for fossils typically has a low environmental impact and is relatively safe 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.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries
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.
