Garnets are a group of silicate minerals with species ranging in colour from red, green and even colour change varieties.
Almandine garnet is the most common mineral variety and is prized for it's rich crimson hue. Often very dark or brownish, finding vivid red crystals are the most desirable.
Belonging to the cubic crystal system, these stones form in dodecahedrons, trapezohedrons and combinations of the two.
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.
MOH's Hardness 6.5 - 7.5

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.
