We are thrilled to present this year’s impact report for Exquisite Crystals. We are proud to be a small, family-owned business that has been successfully delivering premium-quality crystals and services since 1999.

For over two decades now, we have watched our company grow from a labor of love into a flourishing enterprise well-recognized throughout the crystal industry. This growth has only been possible due to the support of our dedicated stakeholders, without whom we would not have been able to achieve what we have today.

We value the personal touch and ensure each customer query is answered personally so they can be assured their needs take precedence over everything else.

At Exquisite Crystals, we are also focused on giving back to our local and global community and have launched various initiatives over the past few years that reflect this commitment. Some of these include funding tree planting for every item sold as well as creating sustainable packaging options for customers who purchase our products online. Our goal is not just to provide exceptional crystals but also make sure that our practices meet high standards of social responsibility and environmental protection.

In addition, we strive to offer competitive pricing for all types of customers, so everyone has access to quality specimens at an affordable price point. We understand how important it is for people around the world to surround themselves with healing crystals, so making them accessible is one way we show our dedication towards making a difference in people’s lives.

Impact on People

Working Locally

Nora, a third-generation Exquisite Crystals staffer, recently attended the Circular Economics Forum, a three-day virtual conference for high school students at Lewis & Clark College in July of 2022. She found this to be an invaluable experience that provided her with key insights and skills that she can use to better understand and contribute to the circular economy.

Overall, through her participation in the Circular Economics Forum, Nora developed a better understanding of the circular economy and enhanced her ability to contribute to it in meaningful ways. She is excited to take the knowledge and skills that she gained at the Forum and apply them to Exquisite Crystals.

Through Nora’s story, we can see how our commitment to inclusion, introductions, and access for the next generation of leaders in the Circular Economy is having a positive impact on young people like Nora. We are proud to be part of a movement that is empowering students like Nora and giving them the resources they need to thrive in the circular economy.

Our Partnerships

Working Globally

Exquisite Crystal’s partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects has a global impact. Vavy’s story shows the power of economic self-sufficiency.

With limited income, Maman’i Taba (Vavy) had to choose between sending her four children to school or feeding her extended family of ten. She was selling produce at the local market, but the money she earned was not enough to provide for her family’s needs. She felt the pressure of providing for ten people and knew something needed to change. Amid her struggle, Vavy was introduced to Eden Reforestation Projects’ Madagascar team and hired as a Planter, where she selects and collects seeds.

Since joining the Madagascar team, Vavy’s children are back in school, she is saving for a new home big enough to accommodate her family, and she can see the environment around her healing.

Your support of our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects communities in Madagascar makes more stories such as Vavy’s a reality.

Goals

We have big dreams for the future ahead

At Exquisite Crystals, we have ambitious goals for the future.

First and foremost, we are dedicated to expanding our collection of crystals from around the world. We will strive to track down new sources and create relationships with suppliers who share our values and commitment to environmental protection. To that end, we plan to collect more data on our suppliers and have them sign a pledge ensuring their commitment to our shared social and environmental goals.

We also want to continue offering outstanding customer service through personal, tailored experiences for each query. Our team is committed to not only responding quickly but also providing helpful insights so shoppers can make informed decisions about their purchases. As part of this effort, we are exploring ways in which technology can assist us in creating an even more personalized experience while streamlining our processes at the same time.

Finally, Exquisite Crystals recognizes its responsibility as a leader in the crystal industry and plans on launching several initiatives to help raise awareness of ethical sourcing standards across the board. We look forward to collaborating with other companies on sustainability projects and educating buyers about responsible shopping practices.

In short, Exquisite Crystals has big plans for the future and seeks not just to excel in quality product offerings but also take meaningful steps towards improving the industry as a whole.
