Specimen Sources

At Higher Level Creations, we take pride in our close collaborations with small mines, mine vendors, and stone-cutters worldwide. Our commitment is to source our items from partners who share our deep appreciation for the Earth's creations.

Whenever possible, we prioritize working with mines within the United States, fostering strong relationships with local mines and lapidary shops. For gemstones or minerals that are not available domestically, we selectively engage with reputable mines and mine-vendors, many of whom we have longstanding relationships with. Our emphasis is always on ethical practices and establishing personal connections that encourage open dialogue about responsible mining techniques, ensuring the well-being of both the Earth and the individuals involved in the mining process.

If you have any inquiries about the specific sources of our specimens, we invite you to reach out to us at We are more than happy to provide further information and address any questions you may have.
