Crystals That Require Extra Care | Therapeutical Properties

Crystals

For a variety of reasons, many crystals need special treatment when maintained. It is good to be informed so that we do not damage our precious crystals, but they also take care of us.

Some crystals are water-soluble, therefore they should not be immersed in water or other liquids; other crystals are soft and easily damaged, others may even be affected by the sun’s rays.

There are certain crystals and minerals that can be very toxic. Although the chances of poisoning by use or by preparing elixirs from the crystals are very small it is good to know what these are and how they can be used.

Amethyst

Photosensitive, the colour will fade if left in strong sunshine. It is recommended not to be left in the sun, except for short periods of cleaning or preparation of elixirs.

Apatite

Sensitive to acid exposure – an unlikely event in crystal therapy, but worth mentioning.

Calcite

It may be affected by water, so it is better not to be put in water for cleaning or cleaning.

The rough calcite usually has a smooth waxy texture, it can be immersed in water without problems and is often used to make an elixir.

Some varieties, particularly honey calcite, are photosensitive and will lose their colour if exposed to the sun for a long time. The calcite is also soft and easy to scratch.

Chrysocolla

It is a very soft crystal (hardness 2-4), therefore it scratches lightly. It is advisable to handle it especially as a jewel where it is quite exposed to possible scratches.

Pink Quartz

Some pink quartz crystals are photosensitive and will lose colour if left in strong sunshine.

Being quite difficult to know which pink quartz will be affected and which is not, it is recommended to keep any quartz pink away from the sun’s rays; obviously except for short periods of purification and cleaning or for the preparation of elixirs.

Copper

Contains minerals that are slightly soluble such as malachite and azurite.

For elixir solutions use dioptase, chrysocolla and other copper-containing silicates
* and are safe to be non-soluble.

Florine

It is very soft (hardness 4), so it scratches lightly and will eventually have a deleted appearance;
although it does not lose its therapeutic properties, it will no longer be so eye-catching.

When transported, it is advisable to keep it separate from other crystals.

It is also photosensitive and its colour will be faded if left in the sun.

Florina also has a strong cleavage that breaks easily in strokes, so increased care is recommended when handled.

Gypsum: Selenite, Satin Spar, Fishtail, etc.

All gypsums contain water.

They will absorb water and are soluble in water, especially the satin. If they are immersed in the water, the initial crystals will become erased; if they are left for a long time they will even disintegrate.

Do not clean or clean under running water, can be cleaned with a slightly damp, non-abrasive material.

Halite

It is a salt crystal so highly soluble in water.

Do not clean or clean under running water, can be cleaned with a slightly damp, non-abrasive material.

It may even disintegrate if it is left in humid conditions, such as a cellar.

Lapis Lazuli

Sensitive to pressure – an unlikely event in crystal therapy, but worth mentioning.

Malachite

It is a very soft crystal (hardness 3.5-4), so it scratches lightly and becomes matte.

When transported, it is advisable to keep it separate from other crystals.

Also sensitive to heat, acid, ammonia and hot water.

Malachite is potentially toxic.

If used in elixirs, it is quite unlikely to be poisonous, but as a safety measure, it is recommended to create an elixir to use the external method.

Take great care not to inhale malachite filings.

Pyrites

Do not dive into the water.

Turquoise

It is a soft and very porous crystal.

Reaction adversely to oil, light, sweat, cosmetics or detergents.

Always remove turquoise jewels before using water.

Use other cleaning and purification methods than running water.

* Silicates are a viable solution for creating elixirs. Any crystals in the quartz family can be used, so having a fairly varied range of crystals that can work in creating elixirs.
