  1. A random-blogger comment re the crystal paintings:

    Given the healing properties of many stones and minerals, […]

    I’m 99% sure that they’re just referring to the usual new-age woo, but the comment set me to wondering: Are there any stones/minerals (in the usual sense of the word) that actually have healing properties?

    There’s lithium, which can aid with certain neurological issues — but I think that’s more accurately a metal, rather than a mineral or a stone.

    Aluminum crystals are definitely minerals, but “antiperspirant” doesn’t really count as healing.

    Is there anything else?

  2. Well, minerals in general, which includes things that aren’t normally considered crystals. But diamonds certainly counts.

    Actually, how about iodide salts? Those are minerals (and crystals, I think) and they definitely have medicinal purposes.
