Do you know how to use crystals sensibly?

This page talks about how to use the stones you own, and its aim is to make you aware that some stones do contain toxic material.

Caution: Please take note of the following information, and be informed.

There are some crystals that have toxic components, and these may or may not be bound up inside the crystal.

To lower your risk from these stones, you should use your crystals with care, and handle them in a responsible and sensible way.

If you wish to use stones to make crystal essences or elixirs, use the indirect method, where there is glass between the stone and the water.

Ensure you wash your hands after touching any raw unsealed stones of any kind, particularly if you do not know if they contain toxic components.

Use crystals sensibly, and where possible choose stones that are polished, tumbled or sealed.

Even when sealed, still take care how you manage your use of your crystals and stones, particularly when they are broken, or are raw or natural stones.

Read In Depth Articles...

This article is not meant to scare you, but it is important to be informed.

A good number of the stones on the list above are powerful healing crystals, and have many excellent benefits, so this is a method you can use that allows you to still take advantage of their vibration for healing.

If you keep stones that are known to be toxic inside a very strong sealed cloth bag, or even a plastic bag and/or box, the vibration will still come though without you having skin contact.

This is a possible way to use stones that are raw that are on the above list, or any you may be unsure of.

I was recently asked about radioactive minerals and have discovered a site  with more information about it here. So if you'd like to known more about that subject check out that information.

If you wish to read in-depth articles on any stone listed above, you can check to see if it listed on the site. Its easy, simply use the handy search box below.
