Thank you so much for all of your questions and I am so glad that you find the information on our site valuable. Part of our mission is help everyone find the resources that they need to work with crystals safely so we are very serious about sharing that information. I am including a link to our Crystal Cautions guide at the end of this message just in case you haven't seen it.
Aluminum and Zirconium are Heavy Metals that can be harmful in large quantities. Some of the illness they cause include Heart Disease, Auto-Immune Disease, Parkinson's Disease, Cancer, Skin and Mental Disorders. Typically it would take very large quantities of these to have an serious physical harm but there are those who have a lower tolerance to the Metals and they would need to be extra cautious.
When you wear jewelry it is on your skin and the toxicity in the metal can be absorbed (that's why some jewelry turns your skin green). Some people are allergic to certain metals and cannot wear them like Silver, Copper, etc. As long as you don't have any health issues concerning Metals and you take normal precautions (like washing your hands after handling certain crystals) you will be fine.
When we say that we Bless the crystals before they leave our warehouse what we mean is that we are asking that the crystals support the intentions of the recipient, that the crystals are activated with the most positive of energies and that the Highest Good of All is served.
Crystals do already have very positive energy but we want to make sure that you are receiving not only the natural energies of the Crystals but also our blessings for your positive experience.
You always want to clear your crystals of past energies and charge/activate them with positive intentions. Crystals do absorb energy and even the most positive people, places and situations are going to have a difficult day and we want to make sure that you don't receive any negative vibrations even if they are unintentional. I am also including a link with ideas on how to clear and charge your crystals.
