Do we know whether the mining of gemstones and metals has impacted the planetary grid?
Thanks so much for your question about the environmental impact of mining for crystals and minerals. The short answer is yes....any kind of mining, digging, etc. is going to impact the Earth. The longer answer is that the most damaging mining is for industrial ore (coal, aluminum, etc.) and precious gemstones. Most specimen mining does not involve that kind of mining and/or it is the by-product of a larger mining project. For instance a company is blasting for coal and discovers pockets of quartz that is tossed aside and later discovered (or dug up) by specimen collectors. In general the digging and mining for crystals and minerals occurs after industrial mining. Everything we do impacts the Earth and so of course does mining for crystals and mineral. I would suggest that you research the topic for yourself - a good place to start is how they mine for Clear Quartz in Arkansas. There are many mines in that state but they work hard to preserve the mountains (that are naturally shifting) etc.
