Does cutting oil negatively affect the healing properties of (LITHIUM) crystals?
I was looking at this one crystal which is deeper and more saturated than the typical very pale, almost colorless ones. I asked the seller if it was dyed. He said he used "cutting oil" which had deepened the color and was permanent.
I wanted to know what that was so googled it and landed on "honing oil" on Wiki. It says: "The two most common classes of honing oil are petroleum based (typically mineral oils), and non-petroleum (typically water or vegetable oil) based. Common additives include chlorine, sulfur, rust inhibitors, and detergents."
Would all these elements impair the stones' metaphysical properties? I should assume at the very least, chlorine, sulfur, rust inhibitors and detergents would have a very negative impact on the crystal. As I've mentioned before a few years ago got an imperial topaz that was not only oozing oil at the base, I coudln't feel anything one way or another about it! (Truly a first for me with crystals)
Oh! It's one of these lithium bearing stones and I wanted it to stabilize some spooky mental cycles I go through. (Nothing else works so back to crystals for me!) I'd think that the lithium would be "drowned" in chemicals/elements and no longer active, perhaps even toxic?? What is everyone's opinion on this?
Thanks everyone who shares their thoughts. An expert opinion would be super welcome though! :)
