Hello! I was wondering, is if safe to carry small crystals and minerals on an airplane? How can I clean them so they don't get taken away? Thank you!!!
I’ve actually traveled internationally with some shells/rocks. The best advice I can give you is what the guy at customs told me. Their main concern was for things living on/in them.Be sure to sterilize your items before packing them. Give them ample time to dry out properly. Pack them in a ziplock and keep them somewhere for easy access just in case they ask to see them. This worked for me and I had no issues. Safe travels. Good luck!
If you have anymore questions, Feel free to ask.
Note: Please make sure this is appropriate for cleaning the specific minerals that you have as you probably wouldn’t want to boil Halite or something of that sort.
