Ethical and Natural Pink & Ruby Crystals
Since the beginning of time, crystals have been used to attract everything from prosperity to stability and beyond. My first use of crystals was when I found out that rose quartz attracts love from the Platonic to the romantic. Wishing for romantic LOVE, I bought the biggest rose quartz I could afford and within the year my husband entered my life❣️ At the moment, I'm using a blue lace agate to help me overcome my stage-fright in front of the camera for my ToxyFree Path membership. It's working!
ToxyFree pledges to only supply crystals that are proven to put the people and the environment first before profits. We strive for the deepest commitment to ecological preservation and fair trade. ToxyFree will not carry anything that has documented environmental and social harms. While some crystals are in demand, carrying them would go against this mission. We will not carry endangered minerals and encourage others to not create demand by keeping them in the Earth. Our supplier specializes in ethical sourcing and being an educational resource and guide for consumers. Consumers have the purchasing power to demand change in the crystal extraction industry to ensure fair wages, the highest level of safety, and responsible mining.
ALL CRYSTALS SOLD AT TOXYFREE COME FROM SMALL FAMILY-OWNED MINES WHO USE THEIR BUSINESSES IN ETHICAL WAYS TO HELP AND SUPPORT OTHERS IN THEIR COMMUNITIES (JOB CREATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION). (By supporting small, family-owned mines, local economies are stimulated which divests resources away from deforestation and other industries base on exploitation). Each crystal is traditionally-harvested using primarily surface mining methods like pick and axe leaving a minimal footprint while not contributing to environmental destruction by releasing chemicals or toxins that can harm the ecosystem.

South Dakota Rose Quartz: no longer being mined, so once it is gone it is probably gone for good. The deposits there have mostly been mined out and the recent explorations haven’t come up with any good material so it isn’t really economically viable to continue. Our source wanted to continue mining and exploring new areas for digging, but his children aren’t interested in continuing the business as he is getting into retirement. To my knowledge there isn’t anybody left producing rose quartz commercially in SD, even though just a few decades ago some of the finest rose quartz in the world was coming out of there and a lot of museums contain their specimens. It’s been said that along the side of the roadways you used to be able to find tons of rose quartz chunks but even that also has really dwindled because so many people were stopping to pick it up.
