Gemstones are often associated with beauty, health, and positive energy. But behind the shiny façade that many consumers see lies a darker reality. The new documentary goes beyond natural healing claims and takes viewers on a journey to unearth the true cost of pretty gemstone products.
From mines in Madagascar, the film follows the global journey of rose quartz, amethyst, and jade. In the quest for profit, social media influencers and beauty brands are driving demand for these stones. But the workers behind the production chain experience anything but healing and wellbeing. Join Nadja Mitzkat as she investigates the conditions in which these gemstones are mined and what it means for the people working in the mines across the globe.
