Toxic Gemstones

10 Jul 2012 12:00:00 | Author: Caryl

 

Some gemstones contain metals or toxins.  Whilst these stones are all safe to place on the body, or within the aura, to gain their healing effects, they must NEVER be used directly in water for use as gem elixirs or essences.

Below is a list of the better known toxic gemstones, but please be aware that this list is by no means complete.

If you wish to make a gem elixir or essence from a known toxic gemstone, or you are unsure about a particular gemstone, only use the indirect method.
