Sourcing of Crystals

At High Country Holistic we choose Quality over Quantity.

The Quality of our pieces is reflected in the price you pay.

All forms of mining have a direct impact on the environment to some extent, which is why we choose to source our crystals in smaller quantities so that we can minimise our footprint.

We are very conscious of the suppliers we deal with, and we always focus on purchasing from those who have the ability to reassure us that ethical and moral standards are held in high regard when sourcing their crystals and minerals from Australia or Overseas. 

This includes sourcing pieces from mines that:


- Do not employ underage labour.

- Pay fair wages to employees.

- Provide safe working conditions for all employees which includes the utilisation of protective equipment to reduce the likelihood of conditions such as Deafness and Silicosis.

- Take consideration of the environment during mining practices. 

 

Where possible, we will provide details within our product descriptions about the grade (quality) and place of origin of each individual piece on our site.

Unfortunately, as we do not unearth our own crystals, and are unable to physically visit the mines ourselves, we have to put our faith in our suppliers to do the right thing. We cannot wholeheartedly guarantee that practices meet the standards we would hope.

If you do not feel comfortable with potential environmental damage, or on the off-chance, receiving a crystal from an untrusted source, we suggest to cease purchasing crystals for good. 

Although cleansing a crystal will not erase its history, the one thing that allows us to be at peace with what we do, and the crystals that we consciously source, is that the energy of our pieces feels good.

We have received crystals in the past which have felt as if mistreatment had occurred somewhere along the line. In situations like this we immediately cease any more dealings with the company.

At High Country Holistic we will always strive to do our best, and when we know better, we will do better.
