Crystal Cleaner Oxalic Acid – Ron Coleman Mining

Collection: Crystal Cleaner Oxalic Acid

Quartz crystal cleaning powder. Oxalic acid crystalline solid that forms a colorless solution when water is added.   This product is what is used in our commercial operation. Instructions are mailed with the product and found below.

Oxalic Acid is a mild cleaning solution similar to Purex and is most effective for removing rust and mud stains from quartz crystals.  It is recommended that you clean your crystals outside or in a well ventilated area.  Rubber gloves may be used when placing crystals in acid solution and when removing them.  One box of baking soda will neutralize 6 gallons of the solution for disposal. 

COOL PROCESS:   Remove as much dirt from crystals as possible.  This can be done with plain water and a soft brush.  The cleaner your crystals are when you process them, the more times you can reuse your solution.

In a plastic container with a cover, mix a 2 pound bag of Oxalic Acid powder with 6 gallons of water.  Place rinsed crystals in solution making sure that the crystals are completely covered with the liquid. 

Cover the container and set it in the sun for approximately 3 days.  

Remove crystals from solution and rinse well.  

You may now reuse the solution to clean more crystals.  The solution can be used 5 to 6 times, depending on how clean your crystals were when they were processed. 

HEAT PROCESS: Remove as much dirt from crystals as possible.  This can be done with plain water and a soft brush.  The cleaner your crystals are when you process them, the more times you can reuse your solution. 

In an appropriate container, like an old crock pot, mix a 2 pound bag of Oxalic Acid powder with 6 gallons of water. 

Place rinsed crystals in solution making sure that the crystals are completely covered with the liquid.  Heat the mixture to about 200 degrees or just below boiling point and maintain temperature for about 8 hours.  (Allow crystals to cool naturally before removing from solution.

Remove cooled crystals from solution and rinse well.
