Lately I have seen a lot of talk about Toxic Crystals and how they should be used for healing. Some of these lists are quite extensive and could frighten some people about use of Crystals for Healing.
Now I have always said that I only use and recommend one way to make an elixir (see here) because of the elements that some crystals contain.
I have made the list into two parts so that I may talk about some individual crystals that are on the list. We cannot know exactly what amount any of these elements are in an individual crystal some may contain minute amounts and some may contain lots, so using them in an elixir where you place the crystal directly into the water is a little risky. There are 94 Healing Crystals in this list, you can find similar lists all over the internet, but most just give you the toxic material in the crystal and tell you not to use them in elixirs and that is great, but people reading these lists may feel that they cannot use these crystals safely in healing, so I will try to explain how to use these crystals safely.
Most of the healing crystals on the list I have used and will continue to use in the normal manner, some you will note I have special handling methods and I will explain what I do to keep myself and my clients safe.
O.K. Let's get started. I will not mention every crystal here but the most common ones.
NOTE: I AGAIN REMIND YOU THAT I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY CRYSTAL BEING PUT DIRECTLY INTO WATER TO MAKE AN ELIXIR. I WILL NOT MENTION ELIXIR IN THE EXPLAINATIONS BELOW BUT PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT I DO NOT USE THE IMMERSION METHOD NOR DO I RECOMMEND IT.
Prehnite: I use this crystal in my Chakra Healing and have had no prolems. Again I only use only the one way to make an elixir with this and everyother healing crystal.
Ruby: This is one of my favourites, mainly because it is my birthstone and Jeff has brought me so many beautiful pieces of Jewellery with Rubies. I always have a Ruby and Diamond ring on my finger and never take it off even when swimming, I personally have had no problems with this healing crystal but that does not mean someone else has had the same results.Again this list is about what a lot of peopole are quoting as crystals not safe to use in the emersion method..
Sapphire: Again this is a crystal that I and a lot of people wear constantly in jewellery.
Scolecite: This crystal is very delicate and requires careful handling, as the crystal spears can easily break off.Other than that I do not take any extra care.
Sodalite: Again this is one of the most common crystals used in healing and again I do not recommend the emmersion method for making an elixir.
Sulphur: This is one healing crystal that I treat very carefully, I always have this crystal on a glass plate and if I am using it in healing I place the plate on the person, being careful not to let it come into contact with their clothes or skin. I always wash my hands after using this crystal and I would definately not use this crystal to make an elixir using the emmersion method.
Again Turquoise is in the same category as Rubies and Sapphires use in Jewellery extensively.
You will notice that a lot of these crystals contain Aluminium and if we are exposed to large doses it can be dangerous, but we use cooking utensils with aluminium and drink from bottles with aluminium, so I would say to you that just be careful.
These lists that are going around are directed at what crystals to use or not to use when making elixirs, And again I only recommend my method of making elixirs.
I have put up this second part of the list for your information, but I do not want to frighten anyone, I do not want people to think using crystals is unsafe, it is just that certain crystals need to be handled a little differently.
And my Golden Rule with Healing Crystals is "IF IN DOUBT DON'T"
There are a lot of things that are toxic in our world so care needs to be taken, but please do not be put off using crystals for healing, as they are the most wonderful healing tools around and have been given to us by the universe to help us improve our lives. So take care by all means but enjoy these crystals and their healing powers.

During the waning years of the depression in a small Idaho community, I used to stop by Mr. Miller's roadside stand for farm fresh produce as the season made it available. Food and money were still extremely scarce and bartering was used extensively.
One day Mr. Miller was bagging some early potatoes for me. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily appraising a basket of freshly picked green peas.
I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes. Pondering the peas, I couldn't help overhearing the conversation between Mr. Miller and the ragged boy next to me.
"Hello Barry, how are you today?"
"H'lo, Mr. Miller. Fine, thank ya. Jus' admirin' them peas... sure look good."
"They are good, Barry. How's your Ma?"
"Fine. Gittin' stronger alla' time."
"Good. Anything I can help you with?"
"No, Sir. Jus' admirin' them peas."
"Would you like to take some home?"
"No, Sir. Got nuthin' to pay for 'em with."
"Well, what have you to trade me for some of those peas?"
"All I got's my prize marble here."
"Is that right? Let me see it."
"Here 'tis. She's a dandy."
"I can see that. Hmmmmm, only thing is this one is blue and I sort of go for red. Do you have a red one like this at home?"
"Not zackley ... but almost."
"Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble."
"Sure will. Thanks, Mr. Miller."
Mrs. Miller, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me. With a smile she said, "There are two other boys like him in our community, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever. When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesn't like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, perhaps."
I left the stand smiling to myself, impressed with this man. A short time later I moved to Colorado but I never forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering.
Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous one. Just recently I had the occasion to visit some old friends in that Idaho community and while I was there I learned that Mr. Miller had died. They were having his viewing that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I agreed to accompany them.
Upon arrival at the mortuary we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased and to offer whatever words of comfort we could. Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dark suits and white shirts... all very professional looking.
They approached Mrs. Miller, standing composed and smiling by her husband's casket. Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her on the cheek, spoke briefly with her and moved on to the casket. Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one by one, each young man stopped briefly and placed his own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket. Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes.
Our turn came to meet Mrs. Miller. I told her who I was and mentioned the story she had told me about the marbles. With her eyes glistening, she took my hand and led me to the casket.
"Those three young men who just left were the boys I told you about. They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim "traded" them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change his mind about color or size ... they came to pay their debt."
"We've never had a great deal of the wealth of this world," she confided, "but right now, Jim would consider himself the richest man in Idaho."
With loving gentleness she lifted the lifeless fingers of her deceased husband. Resting underneath were three exquisitely shined red marbles.
