Inside Stephan – Our Brazilian Agate

Dear friends and clients of our family business,

we are proud to show you our partner mines in the Rio Grande do Sul Area in Brazil where all of our beautiful Agate rough is found.

We live in a world which is changing faster than ever and we are all responsible for the future of many generations. More and more customers are asking for sustainably mined and ethically sourced gemstones.

Therefore, we visit the mines in Brazil every year to ensure that all the Agate rough we are using is sourced in an ethical and sustainable way.

Furthermore, it is important to us that all the workers there are treated with respect and that the environment is protected as well.

Our regional partner has been in the business for three generations now and we‘ve trusted them for more than 35 years. They‘ve become an important part of the #stephanfamily; we can assure you that German law standards are upheld in our partner mines.

Our value chain is always open and transparent for all of our customers and we have the future goal to inspire more and more miners to mine safely and with a focus on preserving mother nature.

Last but not least we want to emphasize that Stephan can guarantee a continous Agate supply. We are fully capable of supplying Agate rough for at least another generation.
