I've seen blurbs that have debunked the aluminum risk, but since my mother had breast cancer and I've already been biopsied for "calcifications", I figure that it doesn't hurt to use something else. Who knows when the next study will come out that says the first guy was right and we ARE giving ourselves cancer.

I'm using the crystal roll-on. Here are the ingredients: Purified Water, Mineral Salts, Potassium Alum, Celquat.

You confirmed my suspicions. From my days of general inorganic chemistry, I remember that potassium alum is a double salt consisting of potassium sulfate and aluminum sulfate. My concern is that the crystal can release aluminum in form of ions in the skin like the conventional types. I could be overcalling it but it is hard for me to ignore the chemical makeup of potassium alum.
