A list of poisonous stones?

Postby Traumwandlerin » Sun Dec 19, 2010 4:35 pm

Can anyone provide a list of stones, which you should not put in water/alcohol and then drink the water/alcohol? I know some stones will be poisonous. Also, I know some stones are especially not recommended for pregnant women to make a drink out of it. Maybe it would be nice to do such a list, too.

Thank you so much :D

For some reason I couldn't find literature on this topic, despite it's essential for health. I own a lot of those stones, and sometimes I keep them in water. I only drank the water once and after that was totally scared that there might be a poisonous stone in there.

Especially thanks on the information about Mohawkite. My daughter likes to play with this stone, she would never put it in her mouth though, but you never know. I will hide it from now on.
