    Crystal Cleansing Question

    I bought a strand of crystal quartz beads today and need to cleanse them. I know you should either use sea water or sea salt, but I have neither. I do, on the other hand, have black hawaiian sea salt - would this do the trick? I assume it would, but figured I'd ask before submerging my crystals in something other than what is recommended.

    Thanks for your time (:

    You can also set the strand outside for twenty-four hours... Hold it over a candle's flame.... Run it through incense smoke... Or circle it with citrine.

    Best of luck!

    It's sea salt, no? It should work fine. Try it and see. Post results for general information!

    Submerged in sea salt, or under running water. Leave it to sit in the light of the sun OR the light of the moon, cleanse it with smoke/fire/incense (although to be warned not to put crystals INTO a flame)

    And with quartz you are fine, but some crystals contain water in their molecular structure and shouldn't be submerged in water for more than a few hours at best (opal, gypsum, etc)

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    I set mine out in a bowl to get some sunshine, usually with some oil splatters on them, handful of flowers/herbs, etc. Then I pour water over them and let the moonlight have 'em. Then I bury 'em usually in the dirt but sometimes in salt. Then I wash 'em off and let them dry in the sun!

    Re: Crystal Cleansing Question

    I have heard of a few different methods for cleansing crystals.

    - leaving out in a days worth of sun
    - lay them out under a full moon
    - natural running water source (rain, river etc)

    Just be careful with some crystals when it comes to using water sources. One of my tumbled stones went funny after I cleansed it in rainfall.

    Re: Crystal Cleansing Question

    Any running water generally does the trick. I prefer natural river water, usually. But since I don't have a river in my backyard, I typically just use tap water.

    Re: Crystal Cleansing Question

    I don't cleanse my crystals I just put them on my altar or other space I like or they like and just infuse them with daily energies, whether it be love or gratitude. I think just paying attention to them like you would to a pet is all the cleansing you need, unless you get really bad vibes, then a traditional cleanse is wise or if you want to use it for a specific purpose (cleanse, charge, set aside in dormant area or use right away).
