    Uranium will affect your aura by misaligning your chakras

      Under the right conditions it will also misalign your skin with your body.

      Never underestimate the potential face melting power of angry Rocks.

    @ickplant That’s completely wrong. Each rock/mineral has a hidden skill. Once acquired, you have less money.

      Some crystals like torbernite and asbestos have a special skill too, called “radiation poisoning” and “lung cancer”

    Placebos can still be effective on a person who knows it’s a placebo.

    I was a skeptic but a friend who worked at a crystal shop was ALWAYS around them. Even hauling them by the box then two in a matter of months. He was jacked!

    /s just in case

    Devil’s advocate time: the placebo effect is incredibly powerful, and for many people it’s all that’s needed.

      I’m all for this but it’s a slippery slope. People seem to go from using a crystal to get over a small psychological road block to thinking that vaccines cause autism real quick.

      In some cases, yes. Hiccup cures are all placebo, but the placebo effect is all you need to cure hiccups anyway, so in that case they’re just as good as a real cure would be if one existed.

      But for something more serious where the placebo effect isn’t enough, it could be actively dangerous if someone chooses the placebo over real treatment.

    What about the healing powers of enjoying yourself with a hobby like collecting a bunch of minerals and just looking at them?

    Surely, having a hobby can improve some people’s mental health.

      That depends. Is your hobby overrun by charletans using your ignorant faith in easily disproven claims to sell false promises of a better life? Because not only is that detrimental to your mental and financial health, but it is bad for society as a whole as it erodes trust in science and knowledge itself.

      People who like shiny crystals decorating their homes aren’t a problem. People who spend money they don’t have on magic because government doctors are trying to put chips in your brain are a real and existential problem.

        Also Quartz is used extensively in electronics, including medical devices that help people with healing or managing their ailments.

    What about diamond? Those can be traded for large sums of money which can significantly improve your health.
