We pride ourselves in working with small mines, ethical vendors, and stone-cutters around the world. We try our best to ensure our stones come from reliable sources who cherish the sanctity of stones as much as we do. Majority of our stones are imported from different parts of the world such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Brazil, China and Indonesia. Most of our unique crystals such as emerald, ruby, kunzite, tourmaline and aquamarine, garnet morganite and lapis lazuli come from Afghanistan.
Although Afghanistan has historically been well known for its lapis lazuli deposits, significant amounts of fine emerald, tourmaline, kunzite, and some rubies are now emerging from that region. Emeralds come primarily from the Panjshir Valley, northeast of Kabul. Large amounts of green, blue, and pink tourmaline, as well as considerable quantities of kunzite and some aquamarine, have been taken from the pegmatites of the Nuristan region, east of Panjshir.
