Moyo Gemstones is an ethical gemstone collaboration born in Tanzania. We are working with female artisanal gem miners of the Umba Valley to assure rubies, sapphires, tourmalines, and garnets from mine to market.
We work to empower women miners to work safely, mine better, improve financial security, and create stable, equitable markets for fair trade.
