** While there are some websites that claim Vanadinite is highly toxic, it is most certainly safe to own and handle. While lead is a component of Vanadinite, it would need to be somehow extracted from the crystal and consumed to be harmful. As long as you are not smelting it or crushing it up and eating it, the Vanadinite is a safe and happy addition to any collection. As always, you should wash your hands after handling any of your minerals <3
