Cleansing crystals:

Water is said to neutralize any negative energy stored inside the stone and return it back to the earth. Although natural running water — like a stream — is best, you can also rinse your stone under a faucet.
Whatever your water source, ensure that your stone is completely submerged. Pat dry when complete.
Approximate duration: 1 minute per stone
Use this for: hard stones, such as quartz
Don’t use this for: stones that are brittle or soft, such as selenite, kyanite, and halite.

Salt has been used throughout history to absorb unwanted energy and banish negativity.
If you’re near the ocean, consider collecting a bowl of fresh salt water. Otherwise, mix a tablespoon of sea, rock, or table salt into a bowl of water.
Make sure that your stone is completely submerged, and allow it to soak for a few hours to a few days’ time. Rinse and pat dry when complete.

Approximate duration: up to 48 hours
Use this for: hard stones, such as quartz and amethyst
Don’t use this for: stones that are soft, porous, or contain trace metals, such as malachite, selenite, halite, calcite, lepidolite, and angelite

Rice This method can also be used to draw out negativity in a safe and contained setting. It’s especially beneficial for protective stones, such as black tourmaline.

To do this, fill a bowl with dry brown rice and bury your stone beneath the grains. Dispose of the rice immediately after the cleansing, as the rice is said to have absorbed the energy you’re trying to eradicate.
Approximate duration: 24 hours
Use this for: any stone

Light Although ritual cleansing is often centered around certain points in the solar or lunar cycle, you can set your stone out at any time to cleanse and recharge.
Set your stone out before nightfall and plan to bring it in before 11 a.m. This will 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. This 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
Don’t use this for: vibrant stones, such as amethyst, in sunlight; soft stones, 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.

You’ll need:

  • a firesafe bowl
  • a lighter or matches
  • loose or bundled sage

If you’re unable to smudge 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 nondominant hand and 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 cleansing — 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

Sound healing allows a single pitch or tone to wash over an area, bringing it into the same vibration as the tone.
This can be accomplished using chanting, singing bowls, a tuning fork, or even a nice bell. It doesn’t matter what key the sound is, so long as the sound emitted is loud enough for the vibration to fully encompass the stone.
This method is ideal for collectors who have a large volume of crystals not easily inventoried or moved.
Approximate duration: 5 to 10 minutes
Use this for: any stone

Large quartz clusters, amethyst geodes, and selenite slabs can be great tools for clearing smaller stones.
Place your stone directly inside or on top of any of these stones. It’s thought that the larger stone’s vibrations remove the inharmonious energies found in the resting stone.
Approximate duration: 24 hours
Use this for: any stone

Carnelian, clear quartz, and hematite are also said to have an overall clearing effect.
Because these stones are typically smaller, you may need to have more than one on hand to successfully clear other stones.
Place the clearing stones into a small bowl, and set the stone you want restore on top.
Approximate duration: 24 hours
Use this for: any stone

Breathwork can also be an effective cleansing method.

To get started, hold the stone in your dominant hand. Focus on your intention for a moment and deeply inhale through your nostrils.
Bring the stone closer to your face and exhale short, forceful breaths through the nose and onto the stone to bring the stone to its highest vibration.
Approximate duration: about 30 seconds per stone
Use this for: small stones

Visualization  Although this is considered the safest way to clear stones, it can be intimidating for some. The more in tune you are with your sense of self, the easier it may be to redirect your energy to the stone you want to restore.
Take a few minutes to ground and center your energy, then pick up your stone and visualize your hands filling with white, radiant light.
See this light surround the stone and feel it growing brighter in your hands. Envision the impurities flushing out of the stone, allowing the stone to shine brighter with renewed purpose.
Continue this visualization until you feel a shift in the stone’s energy.
Approximate duration: about 1 minute per stone
Use this for: any stone

A good rule of thumb is to clear all of your stones at least once a month.
