Description

Some of the other highlights of Norcross: -We were cofounded by a Malagasy woman named Laingo Malala (a lapidary expert who still runs the mines and factories) and Carl Grant (a hobbyist mineral expert gone pro), who together pioneered the proper technique to cut Labradorite to maximize the flash effect — setting today’s market standards for the stone. Carl passed in the early 2000s, and his son Robert now runs things alongside Laingo.

We put ethical standards and the letter of the law in Madagascar at the forefront of our operations. We start our apprentices at three times the livable wage, giving them raises as they master their craft and take on new responsibilities, which is why we have as many as three generations of carvers working at our factory. And for each mining property, we hire locals from the villages near our operations to help with economic development — in addition to making donations to the villages, building schools (of which we have built two that we staffed and maintain), roads, and bridges. While Madagascar has legal requirements for miners to assist local villages, those are largely ignored by other companies, while we prefer to go above and beyond for the local people who make what we do possible.

Our main stones are Labradorite, Blue Apatite, Amazonite, and Sea Jasper (our trade name for Orbicular Jasper, where the Ocean Jasper trade name comes from a neighboring mine). This is a family company, despite its size.

I was there last year. And they had huge carved pieces that are great display pieces. And there is a huge assortment of every kind spheres, odd shape. Definitely worth a visit. Look for signs on left side of main road if coming from Oro Vslley.

They handle small business and wholesale. I saw that one guy who came from New York purchased over a ton of the minerals! I think that their minerals are not bad. Some people misunderstand minerals from Madagascar are low quality.
