I have never heard of anyone being careful handling vanadinite due to its being toxic.

Technically it is toxic, but i handle mine and ive never become ill from it. I do however wash my hands after handling my crystals especially the 'iffy' ones. There are a few in my collection that i wont handle unless im wearing gloves though.

I've been doing research but there's so much out there. Which crystals, in your knowledge, are 'iffy' to handle without gloves? Thank you!
