Yoni eggs should never be dangerous to use, nor should they ever potentially put your health at risk. Despite these obvious statements, throughout the years I’ve come across a multitude of online shops listing a variety of toxic yoni eggs for sale. I’ve also communicated with multiple women who unknowingly bought and used toxic eggs from different shops—all with equally horrible stories.
Also, GIA certified yoni eggs should not be mistaken for being safe to use internally. A GIA certified stone only verifies that the stone actually is what the seller is claiming it to be, but not that it is to be used internally as a yoni egg!
Only certain crystals and stones should be used internally (and we take pride in only supplying healthy, natural crystal eggs). These crystals generally have a certain hardness to them, known as the Mohs Hardness. This includes different jade types, some aventurine stones, some quartz varieties (like clear and rose), amethyst, a variety of jasper, black obsidian, and carnelian.
Apart from those general crystals, certain yoni eggs being sold can actually dissolve when used internally. Some are known to rust overtime due to toxic metals. Many are covered in sickening sealants and epoxies in order to hold the shape of the crystal egg. And a large amount of yoni eggs being sold, bought, and used aren’t even entirely made of crystal, but a man-made combination of different materials.
Some yoni eggs to avoid include:
- Angelite: Contains lead
- Calcite: Dissolves
- Chrysocolla: Contains copper
- Dyed crystals: Many dyes are toxic
- Galena: Contains lead
- Hematite: Oxidizes, leaving rust
- Labradorite: Contains aluminum
- Lapis Lazuli: Contains Pyrite
- Malachite: Contains copper
- Pyrite: May convert to sulfuric acid, which is toxic
- Rhodochrosite: Contains lead
- Selenite: Dissolves
- Sodalite: Contains aluminum
- Sunstone: Contains aluminum
- Tiger’s Eye: May contain asbestos fibers
- Tourmaline: May damage skin
- Opalite: Man-made and synthetic
