WARNING: PLEASE READ
THIS PAGE CAREFULLY. NOTE ESPECIALLY THE RED
Herbs, stones and extracts are often toxic to the body and can
be deadly when proper dosages are not understood or adhered
to. We therefore highly recommend you undertake professional
studies in this field of nature-based medicines.
STONES, ELIXERS, & WHAT DOESNT
MAKE A GOOD ELIXIR
and Gemstone Elixirs for External Use Only
One of the most powerful ways of
absorbing crystal vibrations is by the use of gem remedies,
or elixers. Purpose made ones can be bought, but you can make
your own. Vibrational Medicines Because crystals have such powerful
vibrations they are ideal for making an energy medicine that
works on the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Water takes on
the vibrational pattern of a substance placed within it, then
passes it by absorbing it through the skin. Using Gem Elixirs
You can use gem elixirs by rubbing it on the skin, or simply
by adding it to your bath. You can make it, and store it up
to a week in the refrigerator, and is always best, when freshly
made. You can use most tumbled stones, with the exception of
Malachite is a toxic crystal. And
should NEVER EVER be used
internally or externally.
Other stones such as kyanite, and
other un-tumbled stones should not be used as they can fall
apart and break away when wet.
by MizzMo: I do NOT recommend using gem elixers for internal
use at all)
Making the Elixir You can use 50%
brandy or vodka as a preservative, this will keep the elixir
active much longer. Then add the other 50% as water. Using darker
colored bottles is best, but clear works fine too. Always cleanse
your stones before you use them in the elixir. Find the crystal
that you wish to use for the treatment you have in mind. Pour
fresh spring water, or bottled water into a bowl. Do not use
tap water as most water facilities add chlorine to the drinking
water. Place your desired tumbled stone in the bowl and place
in sunlight for at least 12 hours. Remove stone before packaging.
Then put the elixir in an preferably dark glass bottle, add
the vodka or brandy if you wish to keep longer than a week.
Use an airtight stopper to seal. Store the elixir in a cold,
dark area, or refrigerate, label it with the date prepared,
and what its intention is for.
You can use these and add to
your bath water, and you can make smaller dosage bottle for

This is a list of crystals which
are NOT suited for elixirs etc.
Before you put any stone in contact with skin or gem elixir
you should make sure that it is safe to do so. This is only
a few of the stones that should not
be used on your skin and never ever ingested . Many
of these are copper-containing minerals (copper is toxic to
our bodies), but there are also others for instance, rocks that
contain Lead or Arsenic, Cadmium, Aluminum, Barium or Mercury.
(There are a lot of other stones and substances that should
not be put in water to drink these are just some of them (not
Amazonite - use with caution, the
color is a result of traces of copper, which is toxic)
Atacamite - poisonous (copper)
Auricalcite - Poisonous (zinc
Azurite - poisonous (copper)
Boji-stones - unfit - (contains some sulphur) There is some
secrecy re it's contents - which means you really should not
drink it. (Would you take a pill you did not know the contents
Bronchantite - unfit and poisonous
Chalcantite- (AKA "blue @#%$")
- poisonous (copper)
Chalcopyrite- (peacock stone) - poisonous
(copper and sulphur)
Cinnabar - poisonous (mercury/quicksilver)
Conicalcite - poisonous
Copper - poisonous
Crysocolla- (AKA Venus-stone) - poisonous
Cuprite - poisonous (copper)
Dioptase - poisonous
Gem Silica - poisonous
Galena/ Galenite - poisonous (almost
90 percent lead),
Garnierite- (AKA Genthite/ Falcondoite) - Contains nickel
Halite - will dissolve in water,
Hematite - will rust
Lapis Lazuli - poisonous
(the pyrite inclusions, that is.)
Magnetite - unfit (Iron, will rust)
Malachite : For those trying too hard to control their reality.
Helps in grounding, helps align and harmonize the physical,
emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of our own being. (
Never soak this stone in water to make the elixir )
Markasite - poisonous (sulphur)
(marcasite has the same chemical make-up as pyrite)
Mohawkite - poisonous (copper,
away from children!)
Psiomelan - poisonous
Pyrite- (AKA fool's gold; Inca-gold) -
poisonous (sulphur and ARSENIC) (Keep
away from children!)
Stibnite- (has Lead)
Smithsonite (AKA Galmei/Zinc spar)-
poisonous (zinc (may also contain copper))
Ulexite - The rock will lose its
luster when in contact with water
Vanadanite - Poisonous
Poisonous (lead and molybdenum)
The general rule is: Avoid making
elixirs and massage oils of any stone/ mineral/ crystals containing
any kind of metal (lead, copper etc.)
Never Ever make or use gem elixirs for internal use.
If you don't know the chemical make-up of the kind of rock you
have - avoid any blue or green stone, because most of the blue
and green stones get their color from its copper contents. (Especially
the bright colored ones.) Also avoid any shiny, metal-like stone,
because most metals are toxic to humans.
I may have to update that list for
metalic stones, I don't see malachite on the list, and I know
that ones a no-no to use in an elixir. I've had this list
since the old Shaman Sapience days.
great, Mizz! Thank you so much for this. You did mention that
a person shouldn't ingest malachite up at the top of your article.
A question - the two lists seem to be gems you can use externally.
You noted on this first list that you could use these for bath
and / or externally. The second list says - do not ingest these.
Did I miss it or can you use some of those in the first, long
list internally also? Ok - silliness, but I am sooo ready for
a diamond and vodka cocktail - can I add some lime, and maybe
tonic water? No, probably not the tonic water, huh. Thank you
the first list you can use internally, but I think what happened
and why its not listed as such, is at the other board,
it was felt that I shouldn't post them for internal use, so
took that part out. Lets see what the admin thinks about
this. Lol, diamond vodka? Thats funny. I'm on ice water
today, had toooo much fun yesterday.
Info Mizz. For anyone interested, just remember common-sense
if you decide to take ANY gem essence or elixir internally.
Many aren't suitable for internal use. Essences and Elixirs
also work better with your energy especially on/around pulse
points rather than trying to work through your body mass. Apply
it as you would perfume or aftershave or put some on your fingers
and "wave" it through your aura. You can also put
it in a spray bottle and mist it over yourself.
