Vatican Stone Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Vatican Stone

Know where your crystals come from

This Vatican Stone comes from Rogerly Mine in Great Britain.  This mine has a low environmental impact and is low risk to miners.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

    I love, love, love them all. Thank you!! The chip in the Vatican Stone is not even noticeable — just adds a little good texture — but I do appreciate you asking me about it before sending it. And the other stones are all simply stunning. I couldn’t be happier with everything. Thank you so much!!

    The Vatican Stone’s fossil patterns are attractive and pleasing, their earthy colors contrast yet are comfortably soft. The Vatican Stone’s “feel” is about as totally grounding as any crystal I’ve ever had, a gentle kind of grounding but powerful. From the few days I’ve spent with it, my sense of it is that your description of its properties on the Moonrise Crystals site is spot-on.
