Care is mutual.Give the crystal a perfect appearance at all times, and the crystal will give you more energy.
Why should we clean the crystals?
The deposited dust affects the crystal energy
Dust may accumulate on the crystal, and the electrostatic charge of the dust will affect the special energy characteristics of the crystal. Compared with purified crystals, dusty crystals are less effective in use. At the same time, dust also blocks light, reducing the number of photons that the crystal can concentrate. If you want to remove dust, you can use a soft brush to brush gently. Makeup brushes and small brushes are ideal choices. Clean the dust regularly to avoid accumulation.
There may be reasons why the crystal needs to be cleaned. When you use a crystal, whether it is you or someone else, the crystal absorbs energy from you, others, and the environment. In appearance, it may be dusty and dull. You will clearly see when you need to clean the crystals-when they lose their luster, decrease in brightness, or even fade. When the crystal needs to be cleaned, it may feel sticky to the touch.
Recharging Crystal Energy
New stones, as long as they are not soluble in water or too brittle, will be more beautiful after being cleaned and dusted in mild soapy water. But more importantly, all crystals need to be cleaned vigorously before and after each treatment. This is because the crystal has the function of absorbing energy from the surrounding environment into its internal structure to correct the energy imbalance of the body. If it is not cleaned, the energy inside the crystal will be overloaded and reduce its work efficiency, and even transfer unbalanced energy into the patient’s aura. A cleaned crystal gemstone usually looks lighter and brighter than a tired crystal.
The crystals that are worn frequently need to be purified regularly so that the negative energy absorbed from our body or the environment before the crystal can be removed. We can put our crystal jewelry in amethyst holes or large crystals to replenish energy, just like charging a battery.
Avoid mutual interference of crystal energy
Different crystals have different energies, and putting too many crystals together will weaken the healing energy of each crystal. We can replace and wear crystal gems with different healing properties.
How to clean crystals
You can put the crystal in a bowl filled with water and a little mild detergent, and then gently wipe it under the water flow to restore the crystal’s brightness. Let your crystals air-dry naturally, or pat them lightly with a soft cloth. Here are other traditional methods of cleaning crystals. If your crystals dissolve in water, don’t choose the cleaning method that requires water.
Crystal Cleaning Methods
Hold the crystal and stay in the flowing water for a few minutes. If the crystal has been used frequently recently or has not been cleaned for a while, it may need to stay longer.
Put the crystals in the sun, you can also dry them in the sun after washing the crystals. Please note that the white crystal will concentrate the radiant energy of the sun, which may cause flames.
Place the crystal under the moonlight, especially on the day of the full moon or new moon.
Let the smoke of burning frankincense, sandalwood, and sage surround your crystal, or you can use a whole bunch of vanilla bunches to do it.
Bury your crystal in the soil for one to two weeks, or one to two months. Bury it on the day of the full moon and take it out on the day of the new moon.
Place the crystal in amethyst geode, quartz crystal cluster or geode.
Use chanting, drumming or Tibetan chanting bowls, and touch bells to remove unwanted vibrations from crystals.
Breath or Light
Expose the crystal to your breath or light. You can also practice exhalation on the crystal.
How to store crystals
Precautions for storing crystals
Although the crystals look strong, they actually need to be handled carefully and handled gently.
- Stones with low hardness will be scratched by stones with high hardness, so they must be separated.
- Go to the hardware store to find lightly compartmentalized collection boxes, and fill each compartment with soft paper.
- Don’t use a box that is too big, it will be heavy once filled with rocks.
- Even very hard stones can be very brittle. Don’t knock the crystals against each other.
- The crystal head is easily damaged, so you should be careful when touching or storing it.
- Do not expose the crystal to strong light or an environment with drastic temperature changes. Under strong light, its color will fade, and drastic temperature changes will cause cracks in some crystals.
- Do not place the crystals that have been ground into a ball in direct sunlight, as they may be concentrated and catch fire under certain circumstances.
Avoid crystal fading
Large crystals are for display purposes, and they can be safely placed on a stable shelf. For small, fragile crystals, we can carefully store them in multi-compartment plastic containers, away from damp places. Some crystals will fade when exposed to the sun, so they must be placed out of light, or if you display them, remember to place them in windows away from sunlight.

Precautions for daily use of crystal
Crystals and gems will contain various metal elements. When we use crystals, we can pay a little attention. When we make crystal energy water, we must pay attention to choosing crystals that do not contain heavy metals. The following is the heavy metal content of some gemstones for your reference.

- Black tourmaline (including aluminum)
- Azurite (with copper)
- Emerald (including aluminum)
- Celestite (with strontium)
