Green Aventurine can fade with prolonged exposure to the sun, so store stone in a dark place.
Cleansing and Charging Crystals
Set your stone out before nightfall and plan to bring it in before 11 a.m. to allow your stone to bathe in the light of both the moon and sun.
Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may weather the stone’s surface, so make sure you return for it in the morning. If you’re able to place your stone directly on the earth will allow for further cleansing. Wherever they are, ensure they won’t be disturbed by wildlife or passersby. Afterward, give the stone a quick rinse to remove any dirt and debris. Pat dry.
Approximate duration: 10 to 12 hours
Use this for most tumbled stones.
CAUTION: vibrant stones, such as amethyst, in sunlight, soft rocks, such as celestite, halite, and selenite, that may be damaged by inclement weather.
Sage is a sacred plant with a multitude of healing properties. Smudging your stone is said to clear inharmonious vibrations and restore its natural energy.
- a fire-safe bowl
- a lighter or matches
- loose or bundled sage
If you’re unable to sage outdoors, make sure you’re near an open window. This will allow the smoke and negative energy to disperse.
When you’re ready, ignite the tip of the sage with the flame. Transfer the sage to your non-dominant hand, firmly grasp your stone, and move it through the smoke.
Allow the smoke to envelop the stone for about 30 seconds. If it’s been a while since your last cleaning — or you feel the stone is holding onto a lot — consider smudging for an additional 30 seconds.
Approximate duration: about 30 to 60 seconds per stone
Use this for any stone.
