How to cleanse your rocks, crystals, or gemstone jewelry?
Crystals need to be cleansed for many reasons. Stones naturally pick up energy from the environment they live in. They can pick up energy from you or other people. This is why it is necessary to cleanse your crystals. You can tell when the vibration doesn't feel the same as when you first got the stone, it means its time to cleanse. There are many ways to cleanse your crystals. Use your intuition to which is best for you. I am going to list some of them below.
You can simply place your crystal or sterling silver jewelry in fresh water for a few minutes and rinse them out.
Some people place there stones in fresh salt water. But sometimes it can damage your stone depending on which one it is. Use precaution when using this technique.
Burn sage, palo santo, or sandelwood and waft over your crystals. This is one of the easier ways that I like to clear my crystals.
Bury your crystals in the earth. Find a spot and make sure to mark the place that you will bury the stones. You can leave it there for a week.
Another method I found to be simple is placing your crystal on selenite that is flat or Himalayan salt rock that is flat. This can clear and charge your crystal instantly.
Place your stones in sunlight or moonlight. Usually its best to place them when there is a full moon. Also use precaution because some stones can catch fire depending on the stone in sun light. I usually place my crystals on the window sill so the crystal doesn't get too hot.
Use sound to clear the stones. Chanting, drumming, tuning fork or Tibetan bells can clear your crystals.
