When the chemical is rinsed, a small crystal can be seen among the clumps of lead, and a small chunk of crystallized lead is plucked out. The second tutorial shows a rock being used to create another form of crystal. To do so, a small rock is placed into a cup of water and placed in a microwave for three minutes.
Keeping this in consideration, can you put lead crystal in the microwave?
Crystal and Glass should be hand washed separately in warm soapy water, rinsed thoroughly and dried with a lint free cloth. Avoid pouring hot liquids into cold crystal/glass, or very cold liquids into warm crystal /glass. Do not use product in a microwave or conventional oven.
Subsequently, question is, what happens when you heat a crystal? Heat not only forms many crystals; it can also alter their composition. Take no chances. Intense heat can cause any crystal to either explode or implode (shatter inside). Don't expose your crystals to high temperatures.
In respect to this, is it safe to put a rock in the microwave?

What happens if you microwave sand?
As you say sand unlike water dense foods cannot conduct electricity. But in a microwave the foods are not heated up using electricity but by bombarding it with microwaves. When light radiation is capable of heating up the sand then microwaves can also heat up the sand kept in the microwave oven.
