Why do we cleanse crystals?
It is important to cleanse new crystals because they may have absorbed negative energy from their surroundings during the mining, transportation, and handling process. Cleansing a crystal can help to remove any negative energy and restore its natural vibration and energy pattern.
Additionally, crystals are often used for healing and meditation, and it is important to ensure that they are free of any negative energy before using them for these purposes.
Cleansing new crystals can also help to clear and activate the crystals energy, making them more powerful tools for healing and meditation.
Another reason to cleanse new crystal is that they might have been exposed to different energies, environments and people during their journey, so by cleansing them we are aligning them to our energy and intentions.
Some crystals such as selenite, kyanite, and others are self-cleansing crystals don't need to be cleansed.
