Stromatolite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Stromatolite

Know where your crystals come from

This Stromatolite comes from artisanal miners in Puna, Peru.  Artisanal mining is largely unregulated in the region, but the mine would have a low environmental impact and be relatively safe for miners.

This mine and lapidary is a family-run business in Peru that specializes in hand-polished stones. One brother is in charge of the mining, exporting and sales. The other brother manages the lapidary in Lima, Peru. The business sells exclusively at gem shows in France, Germany and the United States.

I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary at the 2014 Tucson Gem Show. At that time, he was set up with a single table and the only major Gem Show he attended was in Tucson. While most lapidaries sell their polished stones in pre-packaged bags by the pound or kilo, this seller allowed me to cherry pick through his stock and buy only the best. Since then, his spot in Tucson has expanded to four tables under a tent and he now sells at two of the major European shows. It has been fun to watch our businesses grow. Every Tucson Show, we go out to dinner and eat Peruvian food together.

Stromatolite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published July 2015  •  Updated July 2022  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Stromatolite is a fascinating fossil that shows us the very beginning of life on earth.  While it may look like nothing more than swirls and spots, it actually is a fossilized version of a colony of blue-green algae.  In a few precious locations, “living rocks” have been found where the algae colonies are still growing and thriving.  Two of the more accessible locations in which to see them are Shark’s Bay, Australia and the Bahamas.  Even though it is generally considered an ancient organism and an ancient fossil, new algae colonies can form today in the right conditions.  Stromatolite encourages us to love biodiversity and to be fiercely protective of the planet.
