While on this topic, there are also a kind of beads made of mercury (treated with herbs) which while worn on the body touching the skin is said to impart good health benefits to the wearer and immunity from poison. I myself have worn this with no bad effects.

I wrote this in another list.

The rasa tantras like the rasa hR^idaya tantra,
clearly state that Mercury is poisonous and that it
has viSha doSha which can cause gradual death on

To remove this viSha doSha Mercury is subjected to
samskAra-s like mUrchana etc. These samskaras are
different herbal and chemical processes sometime
coupled with mantra-s.

So our ancestors are very well aware of the effects of
Mercury. In addition there is rasa linga worship in
some sanyAsi traditions. I was told that it is known
to give great results and only people seriously
practicing full time haTha yoga and the like are
usually given these linga-s. This worship od rasa
linga is done in conjunction with following other
practices like consuming tulasi kAShaya i.e
concentrated juice extracted from tulasi plant.
I was also told that worshipping ras alinga and
consuming tulasi kAShAya have similar effects.

It will be good to consider these things before 
giving suggestions on matters unknown.

The last statement is a general statemnt and not
directed at shrI Prasada Reddy.
