Crystals can give healing, as well as harm in some conditions. But all stones are beneficial in correct use. For this reason, be sure to pay attention to crystals’ usage warnings, especially before purchasing.

The first thing to know about all crystals is this. All crystals are made of minerals, just like drugs; Since we cannot determine the dosage by ourselves, no crystals should be swallowed and inhaled in powder form. If possible, processed and polished stones should be preferred.

The damage level of minerals varies. We want to explain this in two groups. The first group includes crystals, containing iron or copper, and the second group includes crystals, containing lead, mercury, and arsenic.

1. Iron or copper-containing crystals can be toxic.

If these crystals are not processed and polished, iron or copper minerals oxidize and rust. If a rusting material touches our skin for a long time, it can be harmful. Therefore, it is necessary to use the following crystals as processed, if possible, or to keep them away from water and moisture if they have not been processed.

2.Lead, Mercury, or Arsenic containing Crystals can be dangerous.

These crystals are dangerous for living things due to their heavy metal content. If our skin is exposed for a long time, it can even cause poisoning. These crystals should not be kept by hand for more than 20 minutes, and hands should be washed with plenty of water after use. Or, more cautious, to benefit from the healing effects of the following crystals, we must put them in a glass jar and put them on our bodies. Likewise, we should keep the jar closed and keep it out of the reach of children and animals.
