Cleaning your Crystals

Cleaning Your Crystals

The crystal that is not friable or jointed can be held under running water or immersed in the sea, or in salted water.

As you do so, hold the intention that all negativity will be washed away and the crystal reenergized.

Placing the crystal in the light of the sun or moon for a few hours can also recharge its batteries, provided it is not a stone that fades in sunlight and care is taken not to focus the rays where they could start a fire; remember that the light from the sun moves around in an arc as the day progresses.

Friable crystals or clusters can be left in sea or rock salt overnight. Gently brush every speck of salt afterward as they could damage the crystal, especially in a damp atmosphere.

Certain crystals can cleanse other crystals. Keep a Carnelian in a bag of tumbled stones, and you will never need to cleanse them using any other method. A small crystal can be placed on a clear Quartz cluster and left overnight.

One of the easiest ways to purify a crystal is to use a purpose-made cleanser available over the internet.

You only need to put a drop or two on the crystal or spray it with an atomizer or water to which a few drops of cleanser have been added. This does not damage the friable crystal if sprayed lightly.

How to Use a Full Moon to clean your Crystals

Gently wash them in a little purified water the day before the full moon.

With a full moon, the ideal is to live them overnight, where the moon's light gets through them. It's like a moon bath. (Do not pile them).

Place the stone in the path of the moonlight and allow the rest to happen naturally. We suggest you make this every month because crystals capture the negative energies, and the moonlight resets them so they can absorb more.
