CRYSTALS THAT ARE NOT WATER SAFE

We Always see these beautiful photos of crystals in the bathtub and crystals in candles but the truth is, all crystals aren't safe to be wet. 

Each crystal has a different make-up, making some hard and some soft. Softer crystals tend to break down when wet so we always want to avoid water cleansing and exposure. 

Below is a list of common crystals that are not water-safe:

Amber

Amazonite

Angelite

Aquamarine

- Black Tourmaline

Calcite

Celestine 

- Desert Rose 

Fluorite

Kyanite

Kunzite

- Lapis Lazuli

Malachite

- Moonstone 

- Opal

Pyrite

- Selenite

- Sunstone

Turquoise

This isn't a complete list so if you are curious about a stone that isn't on the list, I'd suggest googling the MOHS hardness scale. Anything lower than a 5 on the MOHS scale is not water safe!

Next time you're thinking about having a bath or doing a crystal photoshoot - you'll know exactly which crystal babies can get wet!
