Sunstone Iolite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Sunstone Iolite

Know where your crystals come from

This Sunstone Iolite comes from artisanal miners near Karur, Tamil Naidu, India. It may have been mined alluvially or in a granite mine, in either case it would have a low environmental impact and be relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is owned by two long-time friends and business partners. Unusual for India, factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. It is also an exporter and sells exclusively at large gem shows.

I first met this source at the 2017 Denver Gem Show. Our first encounter was short since it was my last day of shopping and I had already spent most of my budget, but their polished stock was the highest quality I had ever seen. A few months later, we met again in Tucson and this time I made sure to visit them at the beginning of the show!

In 2019, I was able to sit down with both owners and have a lengthy conversation about sourcing. Unlike most lapidaries, they were willing to speak with me in-depth about how they ensure their business is ethical. We talked about individual mines in India as well as how they source from other countries. We also talked about how they treat their own workers and about the links between business, karma, and God. Their willingness to talk and their pleasure at the conversation made me eager to develop and deepen this relationship.

    I received the Sunstone Iolite and I love it! Not many vendors have Sunstone Iolite and you sent me a beautiful one. It has some lovely Chatoyance and it’s large and heavy.
