How to Cleanse Gemstone Necklaces
By Isabelle Morton
The clutter on her desk piles up, and eventually, she can’t get anything done until she clears it away. This familiar scenario serves as a metaphor for healing rare gemstone necklaces and the need to effectively cleanse them. If healing stones are properly cared for, their capabilities are extensive. When applied therapeutically, gemstones release unwanted energies from the patient’s body and aura. In time, these unwanted energies collect on the surface of gemstones, as well as in the energy field that surrounds each of them. Much like the clutter on a desk, these unwanted energies get in the way of the gemstones’ healing powers, and the stones must be cleansed.
There are many methods to cleanse gemstone necklaces. Running water, sunlight, moonlight, soil cleansing, smudging, salt, and clay packs and baths are among some of the common cleansing methods. In addition to these, we now have cleansing sprays made with the energetic imprint of gemstone energies specially designed to clear a variety of unwanted energies. This method may be the fastest, easiest, and most effective of all.
Water is effective for cleansing non-threaded mineral kingdom therapy tools, such as crystals and crystal clusters. However, there are significant drawbacks in using water to cleanse rare gemstone necklaces. The foremost is premature necklace breakage. This can occur if the necklace is cleansed in water as often as it should be (daily, or more often if you have a serious health condition). Also, it is best to keep in constant contact with a therapeutic gemstone necklace. If you break this contact to allow a necklace to dry, you lose connection with the necklace’s resources. A network of supportive energy must be formed between the body and the necklace, and repeatedly losing contact with the necklace prevents this. In addition, water cleansing will be ineffective if the water emerging from your faucet is chlorinated, and the chlorine will eat away at the thread.
Sunlight is another popular method for gemstone necklace cleansing. However, sunlight can bleach the color from certain gemstones, and worse, it can impart harmful solar radiation. Sunlight only loosens unwanted energies from gemstones. These energies still need to be removed from the gems’ energy field. If gemstones are placed in sunlight, they should always be placed behind a windowpane to avoid solar radiation, some of which is not therapeutic. Due to the constantly changing solar and cosmic radiation levels, sunbathing gemstones is no longer recommended.
Moonlight baths can be effective, but only for certain natural gemstones. Sugilite is one of these gems. Although it may seem that the moon’s light (or, rather, the sun’s reflection) does the cleansing, it is in fact the moon’s gravitational pull. If you choose to make use of the moon for gemstone cleansing, first spray the gems with the new cleansing sprays, and then place them outside in a protected area that will be bathed in the moon’s energy for at least a few hours.
If you live in the suburbs or a rural area, placing your gemstone necklaces outside on the soil or buried in it not only cleanses the gemstones, but also rejuvenates them with Earth energies. Moreover, plants and soil microbes have a natural life giving energy that can neutralize the unwanted energies that gemstones can accumulate. One drawback to soil cleansing is that animals have been known to dig up and relocate gemstones-much to the grief of the gems’ owners! Some of these gems have been found weeks and months later, sometimes in distant parts of the yard. Another downside is that soil particles can get stuck in the thread and drill holes of a necklace, and the necklace would therefore need to be water cleansed. Prolonged exposure to soil can also dull the surface of softer gems, such as Apatite, Fluorite, and Rhodocrosite.
Cleansing your gemstones by placing them in a bowl of salt is easy. However, it is not a complete cleanse. Due to the nature of the salt crystal, it is able to absorb the bulk of unwanted energies, but not all of them. Also, it does not disperse these energies. In addition, the salt must be replaced every two to three days to keep it working effectively. This is no longer the most convenient or easy way to cleanse gemstones.
At first examination, clay seemed to be the gemstone-cleansing champion. Not only is clay capable of removing unwanted energies from the stones, but it also removes x-rays and electromagnetic radiation. Nevertheless, the downside to clay cleansing becomes apparent soon enough. Aside from being messy and time-consuming, clay puts unnecessary stress on the silk, and it actually deteriorates some gemstones.
Cleansing sprays made with the energies of healing gemstones have finally solved the problems involved with gemstone and crystal cleansing. The sprays eliminate the possibility of premature necklace breakage due to wet thread or inefficient cleansing methods. The sprays allow you to remain in constant contact with a healing gemstone necklace, and they do not harm the surface of gemstones that can be damaged by water, such as Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, and Mother of Pearl. Furthermore, soft gems such as Rhodocrosite, Fluorite, and Apatite are not at risk under the care of the sprays.
These sprays are safe, thorough, easy to use, and effective. They are capable of removing unwanted energies not only from the surfaces of gemstones, but also from within them, as well as from their surrounding energy fields. In addition, the sprays can clear a wide variety of unwanted energies, including negative energies, emotional energies, thought forms, entity contamination, pain residues, electromagnetic radiation, and the accumulation that blurs and obscures information communicated by our genes. Finally, the sprays provide a way for clinical practitioners to apply therapeutic gemstones in practice. Practitioners now have the ability to quickly, easily, and effectively cleanse their gem and crystal healing tools between patients.
