It is suggested that you should never let anyone touch your crystals. Before initial use, each crystal should be cleansed to clear any stored energy by either soaking it or burying it in the ground.
Have everything at room temperature. Soak the crystal in one cup sea salt dissolved in one quart of purified or spring water in a glass bowl. Meditate and ask that the crystal be cleared. Soak from 15 minutes to one full day depending upon how many people have touched the stone. Rinse under cool water and dry with cotton or silk.
Wrap the crystal in cotton, silk, or linen and bury it in a place in which you feel comfortable. Leave it undisturbed for at least 24 hours.
After you have performed either of the initial cleansing rituals, you may store your crystal embedded in salt between subsequent uses. If using the crystal on other people, always cleanse it thoroughly by one of the above methods.
You may wish to consult our articles about the Power of the Pyramid and try a new method for cleansing your crystal. Place the crystal under the pyramid like you see in the photo. Keep it there for one week. Your gem should be well cleansed and energized after that.
