mycelium is like flesh, think about it... if you get it with a brick.. or a stick, wont you bruise.. thats the shrooms way of telling you , that you handled them too hard. that is the mycelium oxidizing, there are some threads that say this weakens potancy on the shroom. i dont take the chance.. handle carefully

PS.. why are you pushing on it!!!

The bluing reaction is indicating the degradation of unstable psilocin into psilocybin.

You sure about that?
psilocin -> psilocybin would actually require and addition to the molecule, not a degradation. psilocybin is basically phosphoralted psilocin.
