I have a cinnabar at my work and at home. Now I am told it is toxic and to throw it away. What do you advise?
Thank you for reaching out to us.
contains Mercury which is poisonous and toxic.
It is recommended to wash your hands after holding and to not touch your eyes or mouth while holding or after holding it.
It is not recommended for use in elixirs but you can use the indirect method of preparing a gem water or elixir if you wanted to use Cinnabar. You should never drink water if the cinnabar has been lying in the water directly.
I wouldn't say that you should throw away your Cinnabar. Keep it if you are still attracted to it but use it with caution and wash your hands after holding your crystal each time.
I hope this helps a bit :)
Have a crystalicious day further!
