yeah...nope! I have heard of this before your post, Amsonia.
What if some aspect of spirit stays with the body? What if some of your personal energy remains in the cremains? Then it stays trapped in the crystal forever
Furthermore, what happens when your loved ones die? Do your remains go off to grace the fingers of strangers?
As much as I love crystals, I find this idea so repellent and creepy that I could certainly never sign up for it! <shudder>
I feel the same. It is like force a part of me to stay...And we don't know how it affects the soul so to speak...I don't like it at all.
