Amazonite is more than just a lovely bluish-green stone. It is also among the most powerful stones on the planet. Its name is derived from the Amazon River, where the valued green stone was initially discovered in the 10th century B.C. As a stone of tranquility, Amazonite has great energy and vibration.
To keep your Amazonite in tip-top form, like with other strong crystals, you'll want to regularly cleanse it.
Should You Cleanse Amazonite?
Some feel that cleansing helps to eliminate any negative energy that the crystal may have absorbed, while others use it as a method to purify the stone before using it for healing or other reasons.
Amazonite is believed to radiate great energy and is especially recognized for its peace and serene properties.
The first reason you should cleanse Amazonite is that it's a highly effective stone. Unless you've cleansed your stone recently, you won't be able to get the most out of it.
The second is that with time, your Amazonite's ability to pull in peaceful and calming energies will wane.
The final benefit is that if you're feeling disoriented or detached, cleansing your Amazonite might allow you to re-establish your connection to the earth.
Now that you know how important it is to cleanse Amazonite, let's have a look at the several approaches you may use to do so.
How To Cleanse Amazonite
There are many ways to cleanse your Amazonite. Here are some of the most popular methods:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
One of the simplest methods for cleansing your Amazonite is with water. Simply hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds.
Cleansing With Salt
Salt is a simple way to cleanse your Amazonite. Simply mix some salt with warm water until it dissolves. Then add your Amazonite and let it set for 5 to 15 minutes. After cleansing the crystal, be careful to properly rinse it.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
To cleanse your Amazonite with sage, simply hold your Amazonite in one hand and waft the smoke from sage over it with your other hand.
As you do this, focus on your intention to cleanse the stone and release any negative energy it may be holding. Once you're finished, you're good to go!
You could also cleanse your Amazonite with incense. Start by lighting your incense stick at the tip until it smolders. Then waft the smoke over your crystal for a few moments to cleanse it of any negative energy. It's important to have good ventilation while you're doing this so open up a window to let the negative energy flow out and fresh air to flow in.
Cleansing With Sunlight
Cleansing with sunshine is a common choice for most stones, but it's especially popular for Amazonite. To cleanse using sunshine, simply set your stone in direct sunlight for a few hours. Make sure you don't keep it out for too long as it may cause some fading to your gorgeous green stone.
Cleansing With Moonlight
When it comes to cleansing crystals, moonlight is equally as powerful as sunlight. To cleanse your Amazonite with moonlight, simply set it outside or on a windowsill during the night or early morning hours when the Moon is most visible.
Cleansing Amazonite Jewelry
When it comes to cleansing Amazonite crystal jewelry, it's best to use gentler techniques.
Cleansing your Amazonite jewelry is simple and fun - here's what we recommend:
How To Cleanse An Amazonite Bracelet
We recommend staying clear from sage and incense since the smoke might grow too intense and cause harm to the bracelet wire.
The same is true with liquids, such as water. If your bracelet gets wet, the wire can corrode and deteriorate, so don't do it.
Using the sun or the moonlight is a gentle approach to cleanse your Amazonite bracelet. Allow the cleansing energies to do their job by leaving your bracelet out in the light of the sun or the moon for a few hours.
How To Cleanse An Amazonite Necklace
For cleansing an Amazonite necklace, use the same instructions as for cleansing a bracelet. Sunlight, moonlight, and even a salt bath (without water) are all fantastic possibilities.
Just be careful not to get the wire in the necklace wet. If you must use water, we recommend holding it under running water for only 15-30 seconds.
Cleansing your Amazonite crystals and jewelry is an excellent approach to keep them as fresh and open to beneficial energy as possible.
Now that you know how to cleanse your Amazonite, you can keep them in peak form so that they may continue to work their magic in your life!
