Polished or raw, healing stones and crystals have adorned jewelry for centuries. Today, we are witnessing a renewed interest in healing properties and energy of natural stones. Unfortunately, shoppers do not always know where today's jewelry makers "found" their specimens-- this is important, because mining is a dangerous endeavor, and ethical consumers must take this into consideration. This is true especially for those who believe in the "energy" within specific stones and gems.
At Paradox, our stones and jewelry are ethically sourced because they did not require a recent supply chain. Our handmade pieces re-use and upcycle from vintage jewelry. Our second-hand sources even include long term rock collectors!
So, whether its the look or the energy you are after, rest assured that your purchase is not part of the problem with today's mining industry, but it is actually contributing to a better, more enlightened world!
