What crystals dissolve in water?
As a general rule of thumb (with some exceptions), crystals ending with “ite” tend to dissolve in water. Generally speaking, crystals that fall below 5 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness are a softer material so should not be submerged in water.
Can I swim with crystals on?
I don’t recommend wearing any crystals while swimming due to the chemicals in swimming pools and fact that the water and/or acitivity could damage the crystal. With that being said, if you choose to to use the crystals in the water, please check our list of crystals that can be damaged by liquids first.
Can I swim with amethyst?
As explained before, amethyst can go in water. People ask this question often, and especially so depending on what they’re planning to do with the gemstone. Generally speaking, amethyst is considered a water-safe gemstone because of its 7 rating on the Mohs Hardness Scale.
