SOURCING INFORMATION

Based in Tanzania, this supplier operates their own buying office, enabling direct sourcing of gemstones from miners. They have done so for 4 decades. Their approach involves personal engagement with miners, facilitated by proficiency in local languages, ensuring ethical practices and fostering long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. Primarily dealing with small-scale artisan miners, they prioritise community reinvestment, directing proceeds towards initiatives such as education, healthcare, and social development. Environmental sustainability is integral to their operations, with a focus on minimising mining impact and promoting agricultural land use post-mining. They also provide practical support to miners, including financial guidance and technical assistance, while encouraging responsible grading practices.

We do our best to consciously source crystals and to be transparent about supply chains. We would never knowingly work with a supplier who does not align with our values.
