Cleansing your crystals

Crystals should be treated with care. Many are fragile and/or water-soluble, and some, such as amethyst, can fade in direct sunlight. When not in use it is a good idea to wrap your crystals in silk or velvet to protect them and to stop them from absorbing foreign vibrations. When you receive your crystal it will have been around for many thousands of years. It may have been handled by many different people and might have absorbed some of their negative vibrations. So it is important to spend a little time cleansing your crystal. There are many ways to do this, listed below are some options.

Bury your crystal in the ground
Putting your crystal in the ground overnight clears your crystal of any negative energy. Remember to mark the spot well.
Hold your crystal under running water
Most crystals can be held under running water, preferably naturally running water, but if this is not possible use mineral water. Imagine a waterfall falling over your crystal until you feel that all the negative energies have been washed away. Please make sure that your crystal is not water-soluble before cleansing in this way.
A clue to the water solubility of a crystal can be found in its name. Most water-soluble crystals end in “ite”, such as fluorite, calcite, angelite and sodalite. Lapis Lazuli is also water-soluble.

Some crystals such as clear quartz or carnelian have the ability to cleanse other crystals. You can place a small crystal on top of a Quartz cluster and leave it overnight or keep a Carnelian in a bag of other crystals. This is an extremely useful method for delicate crystals but the cleansing crystals may need cleansing themselves afterwards.

Cleansing can and should be done on a regular basis. If your crystal is looking dull it may be because it has picked up and absorbed negative energy from the surrounding environment. Try not to let anyone touch your crystal, even though they may be full of good intentions. If your crystal has been handled by someone else then cleanse it to clear any absorbed negative energy.
