Nail Polish on Crystals I Satin Crystals Healing Blog

Question: I ordered a Chrysocolla ball. The stone arrived intact however a small portion (1/4 of an inch) of the blue portion is crumbling. Any suggestions on what I can spray or paint on stone to stop this?

Answer: Hi, thanks for your reply. A simple, yet effective method of preserving many crystals is to coat them with a few layers of clear nail polish. Be gentle when applying the coatings and allow each coating to dry completely before adding another layer. As you know, natural minerals are fragile so it is best to handle with care, or if displaying them you can keep them protected in a clear glass or plastic case. I hope this information helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
