Are these crystals toxic to insects (ants)


I have a couple of ant colonies, and is thinking of building a formicarium using white sand and some colourful and nice crystals

I have been seeking the info on the net, but lack the necessary skills to analyse the info, regarding whether the chemicals when combined in the crystal compositions will be able to be absorbed, in the ants thru direct contact or when watering the enclosure.

So in sort - Will these crystals kill my ants
(Crystal names are from ebay, so may lack exact naming)

- Natural Stibnite Mineral - Shinning Silver Straight Ore
- green/red/white Aura Quartz Crystal Titanium Bismuth Silicon vug Cluster Rainbow
- Rainbow Carborundum Silicon Carbide Mineral
- Natural Yellow Tower-Shaped Calcite Cluster Rough Mineral
