Cleansing Your Stones
Here are some ways to cleanse your stones:
Cleansing with the Moon
Crystals can go out into the moon in order to be cleansed. Crystals work with the energy goddess of the moon and the moon can cleanse crystals in a deep way. All you have to do is put your crystal on the windowsill when the moon is out, and it can soak up the energy and the light. This works even better when there is a full moon.
When you have stones that don’t work well with water, this is a fast and great way to cleanse them.
Cleansing with the Eclipses
Eclipses have very strong energy and as you look into the energy of a solar or lunar eclipse, you can see that this can cleanse your stones at a new level. The lunar eclipse is connected to the changes of the world that are internal and the solar eclipse is connected to the changes of the world that are external. If your stone isn’t doing what it should and there is energy that is stagnant, use this kind of cleansing.
You can figure out online when the next eclipses are, and you can put your stone in your window or even outside overnight. Do this so that it can cleanse your stone. Make sure that your crystal will not get messed up in sunlight before you do this will all of your stones.
Cleansing with Salt Water
Salt water can help with many things and many people go into the ocean when they need refreshed. You can cleanse your crystals the same way that you can cleanse your body, and this can be to do a salt water soak.
Salt water allows you to have tidal powers that can bring trust and hope in your life. Adding salt to your water and soaking your crystals can bring that power.
Make sure that you are using crystals that can go into water and that you put your crystal all the way under the salt water. Do this for a couple hours and make sure you dry the stones when you take them out. Amethyst is one great stone that can be cleansed with this method but avoid Malachite, Selenite, Lepidolite and Angelite because they should never get wet.
Cleansing with Smudging
Smudging is not only good to cleanse negative energy out of your home, but it is also good to cleanse your stones. You can use this old technique in order to make sure that your stones are in full power. Sage is an herb that is great for purifying and can take away stress when your crystals are overused and tired.
Make sure that when you smudge your stones that you do this by an open window so that the negative energy can leave the area. Light the sage stick and hold the stone in your other hand and wave the sage stick around the stone to get rid of negativity. You can do this with any crystal, even ones that are sensitive.
Cleansing with Sunlight
Just like with the moonlight cleansing, sunlight cleansing works too. This can give you more energy and life and the sun is powerful because it is beautiful and strong. The sun can make you reach deep into your soul and to feel great.

Cleansing with Sound
Sound cleansing is something that you can use with any crystal. Find sounds that can cleanse by using sound frequencies to go over your stones. This will raise their vibrations. This is a fast way to cleanse your stone and you can do it with one stone or many at one time.
You can use chanting, bells, singing bowls, tuning forks or whatever you intuition tells you to use to cleanse your stones.
Larger Stones that Need Cleansed
There are larger stones that you might use in your collection, and you need to make sure that these are full of energy as well. Quartzes and Selenite are great stones to use to help cleanse other crystals.
You can pout your larger crystals in an area and put your Quartz close to them or in a bag together. Leave them for up to six hours or more and let them use their own energy to cleanse the larger stones.
Cleansing with Burial
The earth is full of energy and nature is very powerful. You can bury your crystals in the dirt and allow them to be cleansed and grounded. The burial method is a heavy cleansing method, and you don’t have to do this unless you are using your crystals for strong energy work.
In order to do this, find a place that you can bury your gems that is sacred to you. This can be in a garden or by a cemetery. Leave them underground for at least a day and maybe even for up to a week. Some of the stones that you can do this with include:
