For thousands of years, people have believed the energetic properties of crystals and gemstones could be used to facilitate healing. Ancient Greeks used to drop their gemstones in the bottom of their water jugs to infuse pure water with the vibrations of the crystals. They would then drink the water, which was believed to promote healing and wellness.
When making your own crystal or gem elixir, it’s of utmost importance to make sure you don’t accidentally ingest anything that’s bad for you. Although crystals have so much love and light to bring to us, they also can sometimes contain trace elements that can be toxic or even radioactive to humans. Check out the list below to help you learn which gems are potentially dangerous. Always check to be sure that the stones used in your gem water are non-toxic.
Water Safe Crystals
These crystals are safe to put directly into water.
These crystals are NOT safe to put directly into water.
If you are unsure, gem water elixirs can be prepared using the indirect method. In this method, stones are placed inside a small glass container (containing no water). This way, the stones do not make direct contact with the water, but their energetic vibration is allowed to be transmitted through the conductive glass container into the water. Since the stones do not directly contact the water, it is safe to be used for an essence or elixir (except for radioactive stones!) Please note that radioactive stones should NEVER be used in the preparation of elixirs, not even by the indirect method!
