every rough gemstone incorporated into my jewelry i've discovered while i've sifted through mining debris here, in california.
unlike many mines that neglect the environment, their miners and neighboring villages, this mine is privately owned by a man who takes care of his land and his workers. after mining rubble is picked through he even allows local ranchers to collect the debris and use it for their orchards.
