Anxiety comes and goes for me, but when it’s especially intense, ethical healing crystals really do help. I am definitely not a crystals expert, but I have learned a few simple ways to use them in my life. I recently wrote a blog post called “3 Simple Ways to Use Crystals for Anxiety” for the Metalicious blog. Check it out if you struggle with anxiety and depression.
Although healing crystals are extremely helpful for me, crystal origin is something I’ve struggled with for years. I feel a deep connection to my crystals, and I’ve seen them help clients in my reiki sessions numerous times. I can feel the energy coming off of them, and they help me to feel connected to the earth. But I often look at them and wonder, “Where did you come from? What’s your story?”
After I wrote this post, I found Nicholas Pearson! Check out my interview with him to learn all about sourcing ethical healing crystals.
List of Ethical Healing Crystals Shops:
My understanding is that there is not yet a seal or organization monitoring the healing crystal (or rough gemstone) industry. That being said, Crystal Clear and Fair Trade Gems are movements that look promising for future verification of ethical healing crystals.
I found quite a few shops who said their crystals were ethically sourced, but they didn’t talk about it in their About section, or in the descriptions of the products. The shops that I have listed here all talk in depth about their sourcing, and the criteria that they use.
If you don’t have luck with these, I recommend using #ethicallysourcedcrystals or #ethicalcrystals to search on Instagram to find other shops.
Note: If you know of a crystal shop or nonprofit that focuses on origin and sustainability, please share! I hope that this will be an ever growing list.
