Whether you just bought a new crystal, or you’ve had one for a while that needs an energetic refresh, it’s always a good idea to keep your crystals clean, clear, and activated. There are many ways to do so, so be sure to check out our full guide on crystal cleaning and charging.
Some crystals can be cleaned with water, but some can’t, depending on porosity, so it’s always best to check specific guidelines, stone by stone.
It’s also important to store them in a safe place where they won’t be damaged, especially if they have any sharp edges that can easily break off. Wrap them up in a soft pouch or piece of fabric when you’re not using them, and if you display them on your altar or anywhere else in your home, be sure to clean them once in a while.
