As crystal collectors (rockhounds) we love to go to the mines, quarries, pits and collecting sites ourselves. Hiking through overgrown brush, through forests or climbing up sides of hills and volcanos; choosing and mining for rocks, minerals and crystals ourselves is one way of ensuring high quality and fair practices. We have been fortunate to travel to portugal, south america, to many states across the usa and across our beautiful country of canada to collect many of the crystal specimens that we now offer to you for your collection. Our curated crystals and findings also come from a myriad of tirelessly researched sources from all across the world. It is important to us that the persons mining for and collecting our crystals are doing so in a way that is respectful to mother earth, while also being of the highest quality and or energy.We have made personal connections (some we are happy to call our friends) with our suppliers to ensure that we and ultimately you are always curating sublime crystals.
