I wouldnt. I'd just mist the corner of an enclosure or fill a bottle cap/dish. It's far cheaper a solution in any case.

Quite a bit easier and less messy too since you don't have to clean up dirty crystals or gel all the time.

I agree that misting or water dish is the best practice.

If you have a Heterometrus species, you will want to have a fairly large water dish. Sometimes they will actually submerge themselves.

Noooo!
A water cap or dish is best and easiest water source.
I read an article on the make up of gel crystals. Do a quick search and prepare to be shocked.
Due to the mastication process scorpions use, could cause digestion problems. Not worth finding out, IMO.
Gel crystals are fine for crickets as they have "suicidal tendencies" around water dishes.
