Have any resources as to which stones do not like water and which do? I notice that Angelite does not like water it seems to take away the polish look and just seems to degenerate it. I'm having a hard time finding a list on the web of which do and don't. Thanks.
Thanks for your inquiry. Any softer crystals can be damaged by water, so I prefer to keep them out of it. This includes Angelite, Celestite, Calcite, Mica, Opal, Pearls, Lepidolite, Muscovite and also unpolished Malachite and Turquoise. Some crystals can even dissolve in water, including Selenite and other forms of Gypsum, Halite, and Himalayan Salt Rock (like used in salt lamps). Hematiteand Lodestone can rust in water, so I prefer not to put them in water for too long. Pyritecan produce sulfuric acid in water. I don’t know of any specific list that indicates which crystals “like” water, though it would be very useful to have. : ) I personally try the crystals to see which ones like water, after I have checked the list of Crystal Cautions. It seems to me that most crystals that resonate with the water element enjoy being in water, like Larimar, Aquamarine, and Chrysocolla. Also please remember to check the Crystal Cautions if you are planning on making an elixir with any crystals. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope your journey is blessed with Love and Light.
