Gemstone Care

Your gemstone jewelry comes metaphysically cleaned and programmed for you. However, if you wear your jewelry frequently or are dealing with many emotional or physical problems, your jewelry will need periodical cleansing. Since gemstones cleanse and transmute negative energy, it is possible for them to become saturated and unable to work if they are not cleansed. Also, they may need cleansed if you notice that the gemstones are physically dirty or that they don't seem to be helping you as much physically or emotionally.

Many ways exist to clean gemstones. The following ways work well with gemstone jewelry:

  • The easiest and quickest way is to hold the gemstones under running water. If they are physically dirty use a mild soap to clean them first then rinse well under the running water. Dry with a soft cloth then set them in the sun to finish drying naturally.
  • Place the gemstones in sunlight or moonlight for a few hours. Remember to place stones that fade in moonlight only.
  • Carnelian and Clear Quartz cleanse other gemstones. You can place your jewelry on a quartz cluster or in a bag with several tumbled Carnelians.

Most clear, pink, and purple translucent stones are vulnerable to sunlight. Examples are: Amethyst, Ametrine, Rose Quartz, Kunzite, Fluorite, Celestite, Aquamarine, and Smoky Quartz. You should not exposed these gemstones to frequent or prolonged sunlight as they will fade. Although fading will not change their healing properties.

Salt, either as salt water or dry, is a time honored method of cleansing gemstones. However, it is not recommended that you clean your jewelry this way as the salt will tarnish silver. If you are interested in further information you can consult a gemstone/crystal therapy book or contact us. We would be glad to answer your questions.

One thing of note, always clean jewelry that comes from someone else or before your give your jewelry away. Gemstones can hold another persons energy, positive or negative, and pass it on.
