I don't know...but surely hoarding something ravished from the earth can't have any beneficial qualities, either for the earth or the holder as it is in effect keeping "stolen" items and they are not complete as they have been shattered from a whole.Returning them as an "offering" might help towards the replenishing of the earth's fragile resources.

Surely that's taking the argument a little far? The bricks that built my house were made from clay taken from the earth but I'm not planning on knocking it down and scattering the dust back over the fields. No doubt the laptop I'm typing this on has been made using the earth's resources.

The fact is that we are a selfish, destructive species, but unless we're all going to revert back to a palaeolithic lifestyle, there's a limit to what we can do about it. Returning crystals to the earth (where? how?) doesn't seen particularly worthwhile.
