Agate crystals are powerful therapeutic tools because they have the ability to take up and neutralize subtle negative energy, imbalances, and psychic detritus. The drawback is that they may become contaminated and require periodic cleaning. Your Agate crystals need to visit the agate crystal “spa” on a regular basis in the same way that you feel better after a bath or relaxing vacation.
You have options depending on factors including location, climate, and personal choice. And you may try out different methods of hygiene to find out what suits you best. Indulge in your agate crystal cleansing ritual and treat yourself to something unique. Express your thanks and astonishment for the stones, and announce your request that they be purified of whatever energy they may have absorbed throughout the healing process.
Even though water is great for washing away dirt and grime, it should be used with caution when handling stones since it can cause damage to more fragile or softer agate crystals. Stones should be smooth and polished before being used with water; rough stones and geodes should never be used. If you have any agate crystals that are very rough or fragile, try using moonlight or smoke as described below.
You can use water by dipping the agate crystals in a basin of water or holding them under running water for a few seconds. Regardless, we never put salt water on our Agate crystals since the dissolved salt can infiltrate small fractures, weaken the stone over time, and dull the stone’s surface. A few specially polished stones, such as Rose Quartz,
Aquamarine, or lapis, might be used in the bath with the understanding that it may lose its luster with time. time. But if they are true bath agate crystals, they won’t worry if they get a bit rinsed out because they are here to help you.
Moonlight is a popular and risk-free method for cleansing any agate crystal, whether rough or polished, because it does not expose the agate crystals to anything other than gentle light. The moon’s light is powerful enough to purify them for 9 days out of every lunar cycle.
However, if you are skilled at eliciting subtle energies, you can employ any phase of the moon. If you want your agate crystals to absorb more of the moon’s energy, leave them out in the moonlight for a few hours. Prevent the dew from wetting them. Your agate crystals will be recharged and ready to go in the morning.
Agate crystals may be purified by echoing sound if done with the right purpose. Choose from a wide range of available tools. Tuning forks, singing bowls, bells, chimes, tingshas, or even just the sound of one’s own voice repeating a prayer or mantra are all good options. Actively imagine the agate crystals unleashing their stored energy on the sound waves as you let the music wash over them. Some of our customers even play the flute, violin, or piano to the agate crystals as a kind of meditation. You may use your favorite tunes and a little imagination to turn this into a satisfying routine.
Agate crystals may be effectively cleaned by sunlight, but only in specific varieties. Certain Agate crystals, such as Ametrine, Aventurine, Apatite, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Beryl, Citrine, Calcite, Celestite, Chrysoprase, Kunzite, Sapphire, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, and Smoky Quartz, fade (much like certain textiles) when exposed to sunshine for long periods of time. Do not leave them exposed to direct sunlight for more than a few minutes.
Keep in mind that if a Clear Quartz Agate crystal is placed on paper, wood, or any other flammable substance, the Agate crystal may heat up in direct sunlight and intensify the sun’s rays, perhaps causing a fire. Sunlight, like your skin, is a natural disinfectant, but too much of it can lead to an “Agate crystal sunburn.”
They thrive in natural settings, such as the forest, resting on a branch, or relaxing beside a waterfall or stream. You should keep them safe from the rain, the sun, and any potential drops. In the same way that you benefit from time spent in nature, so do your agate crystals.
Sometimes the best location is just in your own backyard. Wait until the air is clear to put them out if there is an inversion in the area, smoke, or other irritants. Agate crystal cleaning by burying them in the ground is done by some, but we advise against it unless the agate crystals are kept dry and the burial site is marked so that the agate crystals can’t be accidentally dug up.
