How To Cleanse Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is a beautiful crystal that gives off an energy of harmony. It has been a favorite among people who like crystals for a long time.

To get the most out of your Clear Quartz, you need to cleanse it.

Should You Cleanse Clear Quartz?

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 full potential.

Clear Quartz is known to have a strong energy field and is especially valued for its ability to bring harmony and truth.

People believe that Clear Quartz gives off strong healing energy and helps clear the mind. The first reason to cleanse Clear Quartz is that if you haven't done it in a while, you won't be able to use it to its full potential.

Second, as time goes on, your Clear Quartz won't be as open to attracting positive energy. Some also believe that without consistent cleansing, the Clear Quartz can attract bad energy which causes it to break or be misplaced.

Lastly, cleansing your Clear Quartz will help cleanse and purify your own energy fields, especially if you use it or wear it often.

Now that you know why it's important to cleanse your Clear Quartz, let's look at some ways to do it.

How To Cleanse Clear Quartz

There are many ways to cleanse Clear Quartz, and we'll talk about the most common ones below:

  • in water
  • in salt
  • with sage or incense
  • in sunlight
  • in moonlight

Cleansing With Water

One of the most common ways to cleanse Clear Quartz crystals is by running water.

Only a bowl of water and a Clear Quartz crystal are needed. Hold the crystal for a few minutes under running water. Imagine the feelings of truth flowing freely around you while the crystal is in the water.

Cleansing With Salt

Salt is another way to cleanse your Clear Quartz stone. Mix together the same amount of salt and warm water, and then stir until almost all of the salt has dissolved. Immerse your crystal for a few minutes in the salt water, then wipe it dry. This will help bring out the energy potential of the stone.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Sage and incense are great ways to cleanse your Clear Quartz, as they're known for their cleansing and purifying properties.

To cleanse with sage, simply burn some sage and waft the smoke over your Clear Quartz. You can also hold your crystal in the smoke for a few extra minutes to get a nice strong cleanse.

To cleanse with incense, light the tip of the incense stick and let the fire burn for a few seconds until you're left with smoke but no flame. Like with sage, waft the smoke over your Clear Quartz to get a deep cleanse. When performing this type of cleanse, make sure your windows are open to allow the negative energies to flow out.

Cleansing With Sunlight

Sunlight is one of Earth's natural cleansers. To cleanse your Clear Quartz with sunlight, simply place your crystal out in the sunlight for a few hours. Be sure not to leave your stone in the sun for too long however as it may cause fading in your stone's color. Once you're done, you can bring it back in and start enjoying your stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

Moonlight cleansing is another common and potent method. Leave your Clear Quartz outdoors or near a windowsill overnight. Allow the moon to purify your crystal and bring back its energy of harmony.

Cleansing Clear Quartz Jewelry

When it comes to cleansing Clear Quartz crystal jewelry, it's best to use gentler techniques.

Cleansing your Clear Quartz jewelry is simple and fun - here's what we recommend:

How To Cleanse A Clear Quartz Bracelet

For bracelets, we don't recommend burning sage or incense near your bracelet as the smoke might be too intense and harm the wire.

Also, if your Clear Quartz bracelet gets wet, the wire can corrode and deteriorate.

We suggest utilizing either sunshine or moonlight to gently cleanse your Clear Quartz bracelets. You can simply leave your bracelet in the light of the sun or the moon for a few hours.

How To Cleanse A Clear Quartz Necklace

We suggest that you clean a Clear Quartz necklace the same way you would a bracelet. Sunlight, moonlight, or even a salt bath (without water) are all great options.

Just make sure not to get the necklace wet, as this can damage the wire. If you must use water, we suggest holding it under running water for only 15 to 30 seconds.


Cleansing your Clear Quartz crystals and jewelry is a fantastic way to keep them receptive to energies of harmony and truth.

Now that you know how to cleanse your Clear Quartz, you can keep them in top shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life!
