Especially beautiful or valuable minerals are called gemstones, which have been used as jewellery and as healing and protective stones since early times.
At Waldorfshop you will find handmade gemstones and crystals, preferably from fair trade. Whether for interior design, for the seasonal table, as a lucky charm or as a healing stone - choose the stone that suits you from our range!
The product quality of gemstones is measured by their purity and colour, but the type of cut and polish also have an influence. The original condition of the stone and its subsequent processing are decisive.
It is important to us to sell handmade gemstones that are fairly produced and fairly traded. For minerals, it is important that the working and living conditions of the people involved, as well as the trading conditions, are fair. The political and social conditions in the countries of origin must be taken into account. Child labour is taboo for Fairtrade products and environmental aspects must also be taken into account.

Gemstones and minerals with healing effects
Gerade in dieser Zeit, in der Menschen mit Hilfe von Spiritualität und z.B. Yoga ihre innere Mitte und einen gewissen Frieden finden wollen, können auch Mineralien in Form von Edelsteinen, sowie Kristalle eine helfende Unterstützung g sein. Schon seit langen Zeiten nutzen die verschiedenen Kulturen die Kraft der Mineralien, die Energietische Wirkungsweise von Steinen. Die Wirkung der Heilsteine war schon in den altägyptischen Kulturen bekannt. Und auch Persönlichkeiten wie Hildegard von Bingen haben sich bereits in der Zeit des Mittelalters mit Heilsteinen befasst. Bestimmte Eigenschaften, wie die Kristallstruktur der Steine sind wichtig für die Heilwirkung. Natürlich ist es völlig widersinnig, Mineralien und Kristalle als heilende Substanzen zu nutzen, wenn die diese nicht fair abgebaut und weiterverarbeitet werden. Den all das Leid, welches bei der konventionellen Herstellung entsteht, lagert sich im Mineral ab. Daher setzt der Waldorfshop auf Fairtrade Mineralien und auf fairen Handel.
Crystals have a special meaning in stone healing because of their special form. How crystals are formed is just as important as their different crystal systems.
Gemstones come in different shapes. We offer the thumbstone, which is ideal for the trouser pocket. With the thumb the shapes can be felt along and thus the healing power can be transferred to the wearer.
Amulets are stones worn on a chain. Depending on the shape, symbol and colour, a different effect is created. This was already known in ancient cultures and was used, for example, to protect people. In Waldorfshop you will find, for example, a chain with a heart pendant.
Talismans in the form of minerals or crystals accompany the wearer and are supposed to bring good luck. Here, too, the colours and shapes are quite different. In Waldorfshop you will find a guardian angel, which can be a fine gift especially for a christening, birth or birthday.
Amber is something special among minerals, as it actually has a plant origin. In Waldorfshop you will find baby amber necklaces. These are handmade unique pieces made of Baltic natural amber. Each necklace is unique with naturally different colours and shapes. The necklaces are equipped with an allergen-free safety clasp.
The minerals and crystals in Waldorfshop come, among others, from the company Cosmocolor. Cosmocolor works together with partners in China, Brazil, Pakistan and South Africa. During the regular visits on site, attention is paid to good production and working conditions.
Gems are fair
Another company Waldorfshop works with and from which we source handmade minerals is gems are fair. gems are fair clearly aims to promote fair and legal trade in gemstones from Afghanistan in a sustainable way and to create a better future for people, the environment and the economy.
