Toxic Crystals
By:
Post # 1

I want to inform indivisuals who use and handle crystals because of possible safety issues. Believe it or not, crystals can harm our bodies from the harmful minerals and metals it contains and that our bodies may absorb. I've read these informative articles about these toxic and harmful crystals.They are mostly about the safety precaution of making them into gem elixir, but still can be dangerous by constant handling. I may get comments like "I've handled my crystals for years and still haven't had any issues." I can see where people may get upset from my comment about this. This is just a warning. Use crystals at your risk and I ask you to please research the crystal's or mineral's physical background rather than it's spiritual just for you to be aware and safe.

Here is the articles I read it from. Also has a list of crystals that can be harmful and toxic.

I concur. It is important to look up the chemical make up of any substance before touching it in anyway. For example Cinnibar contains mercury , Orpiment and Realgar both contain arsenic, Afghanite is radioactive. There are many other example more toxic then these. So please do research be for any endeavor. Thank you. :D

Well, these minerals aren't toxic. Yes they may contain some dangerous ingredients, but:
- we had an experiment which shows they are not harmful - humanity has been using crystals for thousand years for healing.
- for example aluminum is very active metal, but in our daily life you will only find aluminum oxide, which is harmless.
- zircon is a crystal and zirconium is a metal. Yes - as raw metal it could be dangerous, but in crystal it is not.
- and finally we are not eating crystals or breathing their dust.

And these are just few examples. I recommend to study chemistry or at least do a proper research first to say that crystals are toxic :) and in my opinion if they were toxic, we either be sick or dead by now or at least these crystals would be announced as health hazard by National health institutions and banned from the market :)

I believe Lessa may have a point.If crystals were toxic,we would of(most likely)figured that out many many years ago.I don't use or have many crystals/minerals in my possession,but I can tell you that I have yet to be harmed by one in any way.

Many of these things contain toxic chemicals, but often they are only toxic to you if they are inhaled, ingested, etc. or if the crystal otherwise changes state. Items that are toxic simply when touched are rarely readily available for retail purchase. As above was mentioned, aluminum can be quite toxic, but generally just its fumes when it is heated up.

As a rule, don't eat rocks and you'll be fine. :D

all I would do is look up is a crystal is toxic before using in a crystal elixir since this is the only time you would directly receive enough toxins to have harm done to you.
