Certain stones command our attention because of their apparent beauty,  durability, and value, while others have captivated humanity because of  their hidden dangers. Throughout history these toxic gems have been used  for uses both mundane and magickal, from arts to alchemy. Join  occultist and award-winning author Nicholas Pearson on a foray into the  shadowy landscape of poisonous stones. 
In this class you will:  
• Learn to identify toxic and dangerous rocks, minerals, and gemstones 
• Explore safe and effective methods for handling, storing, and  communing with toxic stones 
• Uncover the lore and mythos underpinning the power of poisonous rocks 
• Discover how toxic minerals forge connections between medicine, magick, alchemy and the angelic Watchers 
Nicholas will draw from his decades-long study of geology and gemstone  lore to introduce you to the Poison Path of the Mineral Kingdom.
This is a 120 minute, expert level lecture.
