Black variety of Tourmaline (schorl).
Colour: Opaque black to brownish-black
Common geological occurrences: Brazil, Australia, Mexico, Argentina, Sri Lanka and USA.
Crystallography: Forms as prismatic and short tabular crystals and clusters. Crystals show striations down the length of the crystal and are typically singly terminated. Australian Black Tourmaline commonly forms as masses (Warrierite). Crystals can be ultra fine or large ‘log’ like formations. Prismatic crystals tend to have a triangular cross section.
Observations: Commonly found in association with Quartz, Calcite and Mica minerals and commonly as an inclusion of other minerals (Quartz, Aquamarine).
Crystal care: Black Tourmaline is not a particularly delicate stone but some heavily striated or clustered formations can be brittle.

Although crystals have survived hundreds of thousands to millions of years (wow) in our earth they are still delicate and must be treated with TLC.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
