Once I acquired my very first crystals, I read everything I could get my hands on about them. Purchasing was, of course, just the first step in many, according to the books I read. Each book reminded me that cleaning the crystals was a necessary part of being their caretakers. And oh, how they ALL had different ideas and techniques to do so!! I was overwhelmed at the differences in opinions. Added to that, were the opinions of those I met who told me cleansing crystals had to be done a certain way.
I did find out, usually by trial and error, what worked for me and what didn’t. One of my first purchased pieces was a lovely Rainbow Fluorite wand, which I immediately put on my dashboard altar of my car. I loved that wand! It even color coordinated with the car which was a lovely teal.
A few weeks later, I noticed my fluorite friend had faded in color and intensity. I went back to the books. Yes, they did say sunlight was excellent for cleansing stones, so why was my fluorite fading? I was devastated.
More than a decade later, my fluorite friend is still with me, faded and worn, but truly loved. It taught me a very important lesson; just because you read something, it doesn’t mean it will necessarily hold true in every case.
Everyone needs a starting point and it is my intent that this information I am sharing here will provide you with a beginning. Each page will contain one cleaning/clearing method and detailed information on each. Take and use what information you will, leave the rest. Remember, common sense is key.
