SCIENCE 

Lepidolite is the purplish to pink variety of mica. Its colour is due to trace elements of manganese and is an ore of lithium.  Found in both large plates of twinned crystal sheets, these tumbles show small platelets of mica compacted together in a large mass.

Elbaite tourmaline forms as prismatic and short tabular crystals and clusters. Crystals show striations down the length of the crystal and are typically singly terminated. These crystals show basal pinacoids and central colour zoning.

CRYSTAL CARE

MOH's Hardness 2-3

Tourmaline is a resilient mineral, but cluster formations must be handled with care.

OUR ETHICS

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.

Read more:
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.
