Crystals have been revered for thousands of years for their protective, healing and ornamental properties. For example, Lapis Lazuli was used in the funerary mask of Egyptian Pharaoh’s; and amber beads have been found in graves over 8,000 years old.
Crystals are good at absorbing energy, which makes them great for soaking up negative vibrations from the air and people. When you buy a crystal, it will have absorbed all the energy of the people who have handled it. This is why you need to cleanse and recharge your stone, as soon as you get it.
How To Clean and Recharge Your Crystals
The fastest way to cleanse your stone, is to hold it under cold flowing water for a few seconds. Then, place the stone where it can absorb sun and moonlight for 24 hours to recharge it. If you don’t want to leave your crystal outdoors, place it just inside your window.
