Cleaning Gemstones

Preparing Crystals for the Full Moon

Tomorrow is the full moon and a good time to recharge your rocks and gemstones. Today I am preparing to put mine out by giving them a clean water bath. I have well-water, but if you live in the city, you may want to use bottled water to avoid exposure to the chlorine, fluoride and other inorganic substance within the city water.

Be sure your own energy is clean and your vibrations are good; you can do this by meditating and/or praying, putting on some mood-lifting music, bathing and applying essential oils, re-hydrating with plenty of clean water and making meals of fresh fruits and veggies.

I cleaned my kitchen sinks out with some baking-soda. Then I filled one side with fresh water. I added 1/4 tsp organic sea salt- not too much or it can damage some types of gemstones. I cut a sprig of leaves from my grape vine and rinsed and rinsed them in cool water and then added it to the sink of water. You can add a few drops of essential oil as well if you like.

Next, I rinsed my stones (and my seashells) in running tap water over the empty sink to rinse away any dust and dirt. A few of them I used a little eco-friendly liquid dish detergent on. I placed them all in the prepared sink of water, and put my hands inside the water to bless and charge it with peace, love and healing. They are soaking in there now. I will pull them out to dry in a couple of hours and tomorrow I’ll them arranged on a table to put under the full moon all night.

Stay tuned for more pictures and ideas!
