Aquamarine is a beautiful crystal that looks greenish blue and has a refreshing energy. It has been a favorite among people who like crystals for a long time.
To get the most out of your Aquamarine's properties, you need to know how and when to cleanse it.
Should You Cleanse Aquamarine?
By cleansing your crystals on a regular basis, you can get rid of any negative energy or blockages that might stop the stone from working at its best.
Aquamarine is known to give off strong energy and is especially valued for its ability to make things pure.
Aquamarine is thought to get rid of old energies and make you feel more alive and fresh. So If you want to get the most out of your Aquamarine, you should cleanse it as soon as you get it. This will help you get the most out of the crystal, and help prevent negative energies such as losing your Aquamarine.
Also, the power of your aquamarine crystal may start to fade over time. A good cleanse will help bring back the energy that was there before.
Lastly, cleansing your Aquamarine will help cleanse and purify your own energy fields, especially if you use or wear it often.
Now that you know how important it is to clean Aquamarine, let's look at the different ways you can do it.
How To Cleanse Aquamarine
Aquamarine can be cleansed in many different ways. Here are a few of the most common ways to do it:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
One of the simplest methods for cleansing your Aquamarine is with water. Simply hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the energies of purity flowing back into the stone.
Cleansing With Salt
In a bowl, mix equal amounts of salt and warm water. Then put the Aquamarine in the bowl and let it soak for as long as you want. Most of the time, 5 to 15 minutes is enough.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
To use sage to cleanse your Aquamarine, just hold it in one hand and blow the smoke from the sage over it with the other.
Focus your thoughts on cleansing the stone of any bad energy it might be holding as you do this. This will help get rid of energy you don't want.
Incense could also be used to cleanse your Aquamarine. Start by lighting the end of your incense stick until it starts to smoke. Then blow the smoke over your crystal for a few moments to get rid of any bad energy. It's important to have good ventilation while you do this, so open a window to let the negative energy flow out and the fresh air flow in.
Cleansing With Sunlight
The sun is a great way to clean most stones, including Aquamarine. To cleanse your stone, put it in direct sunlight for a few hours. Be careful not to leave it out for too long though, or it could fade your stone.
Cleansing With Moonlight
When it comes to cleansing crystals, moonlight is just as effective. To use moonlight to cleanse your Aquamarine, just put it outside or on a windowsill at night or early in the morning when the Moon is most visible. The moonlight will clean the stone and bring back its energy of cleansing.
Cleansing Aquamarine Jewelry
Even though you can use the same methods to cleanse Aquamarine jewelry and raw crystals, it's best to use gentler methods when cleansing crystal jewelry.
Here are the best ways to clean bracelets and necklaces made of Aquamarine.
How To Cleanse An Aquamarine Bracelet
We don't suggest burning sage or incense near a bracelet because the smoke could be too strong and damage the wire.
Also, if your Aquamarine bracelet gets wet, the wire can rust and break down. If you're not careful, it may even lead to your Aquamarine breaking.
We suggest using the sun or the moon to gently cleanse your Aquamarine bracelets. You can just leave your bracelet in the sun or moonlight for a few hours.
How To Cleanse An Aquamarine Necklace
Cleansing an Aquamarine bracelet is a lot like cleansing an Aquamarine necklace.
Keep the necklace from getting wet and away from sage or incense smoke. Choose sun or moonlight cleanses instead to get the job done. You can also take a salt bath, which doesn't involve water, or a rice bath.
Cleansing your Aquamarine crystals and jewelry is a great way to keep them open to the energies of cleansing and purity.
Now that you know how to cleanse your Aquamarine, you can keep them in good shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life.
