#1 Diamond
The colorless sparklers we love are found in Russia and Canada, but most diamonds have been mined from southern Africa for well over a century. Botswana and Russia hold the top spots for diamond production. Kristals Cosmetics diamond-based products focus rely on diamond’s exfoliant and skin-nurturing abilities.

#2 Amethyst
Although amethysts are sourced from different countries and regions — North and South America, parts of Europe and Asia, for starters — they often have distinct colors within the purple spectrum that point to their source. Uruguay and Brazil are top producers. Kristals Cosmetics amethyst-based products focus using amethyst’s moisturizing and exfoliant properties.

#3 Pearl
Saltwater pearls are primarily cultured in Asia, along the Indian and South Pacific Oceans. The highest grade pearls, the Akoya, come from Japan — from the pinctada fucata oysters, to be exact. Kristals Cosmetics pearl-based products focus using pearl’s capabilities to control oily skin and work in concert with antioxidants.
