An Elixir is a preparation of "mineral water" which contains the essence of the energies of the crystalline form with which it is fortified. In order to prepare the energies of a crystal for the assimilation into an elixir or a stone oil, conscious programming is recommended to facilitate enchanced transfer of the special energies desired.
Without conscious programming of a mineral that one desires to use for an elixir/stone-oil, all of the energies are transmitted, and no specific direction for these enegies is delineated; this method is conducive to activation of 'spring tonics' and for general daily use. Most minerals can be used in the preparation of elixirs and stone-oils.
There is ONE rule however- the preparation of elixirs & stone-oils is recommended to be ONLY via the method I have outlined below.
ALSO NOTE: There are some gemstones on the market which have been colour-enhanced, either via artificial radiation or heat; these processes have not affected the energies of the minerals. It should also be noted that some gemstones which are available still emit radiation. Be aware that not every stone that may enter your country has been tested for radiation levels.
Many minerals are naturally radioactive or toxic- sometimes it is not the mineral itself that holds the toxicity, but the chemicals remaining from the "cleansing" of the mineral. Toxicity may also occur due to the combinations of minerals which are intergrown, where one mineral contains toxicity and the other does not; the melding of the energies also melds the toxicity & radiation.
HANDLING: A mineral, even if normally non-toxic and non-radioactive has been handled by many hands prior to arriving to you. Hence, the safest method for preparation of elixirs and stone-oils are provided on the next page.
