Do you know where your crystals come from? This week, we chat with Moonrise Crystals owner Julie Abouzelof (she/her) on the ethics of crystals. Julie has leveraged her skills, talents, and training as a historian to help bring more accountability and transparency to the healing crystals industry. If you've heard of a "blood diamond," you're already aware that the mining industry is fraught with deeply disturbing problems from human rights to sustainability—and crystal mining is no different. We learned so much from Julie on how these stones are sourced, how to buy them ethically, and which crystals to avoid.
