Cleansing Crystals and Gemstones

Crystals and gemstones are made of energy. When you get a crystal, it has traveled from a long distance and has been handled by lot of different people. First it has to be excavated from the ground in Brazil, Africa or India. Then it is passed on to different dealers before it is cut to the best shape to bring out the beauty and the uniqueness of each crystal or gemstone. Then another set of vendors and retailers will handle the gems before it is made into a piece of jewelry and finally sold to you.
That’s a lot of different energies collected that you might not want.
It is why at The Hearts of Gold when we finish making a piece of jewelry and right before we send it to you, we clear all the accumulated mix energies using California sage and we charge it with Reiki positive energy. The piece you will receive will deliver its best possible energy and healing properties.
After some time if you feel the gemstone energy has weakened you can cleanes and increase the vibration of the piece in different ways. Also by caring for your gemstones you are reinvigorating your sense of purpose and intentions.

Running water is the simplest way to cleanes your crystals and gemstones. Water will neutralize any negative energy stored by the gemstone. Just rinse the stones under the faucet for a minute.
If you are lucky enough to live near the ocean you can rinse them in seawater for an hour up to 3 hours. You can also mix a tablespoon of sea salt into a bowl of water.
Immerse them in a bowl of freshly collected rainwater for an hour up to 3 hours.
Bury the stones in organic uncooked brown or white rice for 24 hours.
Discard the rice after the cleansing, as the rice has absorb the energy you are trying to eradicate.

Leave the stone in the sunlight for only 10 to 15 minutes, if left for too long a stone could potentially fade its color.
You can leave the stones exposed to the moonlight overnight. Stones love the full moonlight.

Sage is a sacred plant. Smudging your stone restore its natural energy. Use a feather to waft the smoke over the stones. A minute or so should be enough.
Remember that no matter the method you are using always set your intentions and do it with purpose. It should be done in the right mindset.
When you are putting a bracelet or a necklace on take a moment to set your intentions and feel the energy of the gemstones. During the day if you need some extra positive or healing energy put your receiving hand (the non-dominant) over the piece for few seconds and feel the energy.
