How To Cleanse Malachite

Malachite is a beautiful green crystal that gives off an energy of longevity. It has been a favorite among people who like crystals for a long time.

To get the most out of your Malachite, it's important to cleanse it.

Should You Cleanse Malachite?

Some people think that cleansing helps get rid of any bad energy that the crystal may have picked up, while others do it to cleanse the stone before they use it to heal.

Malachite is known to give off strong energy, and it is especially valued for its ability to keep going and grow.

Malachite is thought to bring good vibes and help people change. So, if you want to get the most out of Malachite, you should cleanse it as soon as you get it. This will help you get the most out of the crystal.

Second, your Malachite won't be able to draw in as much positive energy as it used to over time. 

Some also believe that without cleansing, it can lead to negative effects such as: Losing your Malachite stone, and even your Malachite breaking or shattering.

Lastly, cleansing your Malachite will help clean your own energy, especially if you keep the stone nearby or wear it as jewelry.

Now that you know why it's important to cleanse Malachite, let's look at the different ways you can do it.

How To Cleanse Malachite

Malachite can be cleansed in a number of ways, and we'll talk about the most common ones below:

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

Cleansing With Water

One of the easiest ways to cleanse Malachite is by using water. Just hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the energies of growth flowing back into the stone.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

To use sage to cleanse your Malachite, just hold it in one hand and waft the smoke from the sage over it with the other.

Focus your thoughts on ridding the stone of any bad energy it might be holding while you do this. This will help get rid of energy that isn't needed.

You could also use incense to cleanse your Malachite. Start by lighting the tip of your incense stick until it starts to smoke. Then, blow the smoke over your crystal for a few moments to clear it of any bad energy. It's important to have good ventilation while you do this, so open a window to let the bad energy out and the fresh air in.

Cleansing With Sunlight

Sunlight is one way that Earth cleanses itself. To use sunlight to cleanse your Malachite, just leave it out in the sun for a few hours. Be careful not to leave your stone in the sun for too long, though, or the color may fade. When you're done, you can bring it back in and start enjoying your stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

One of the most popular and effective ways to cleanse crystals is with moonlight. Leave your Malachite outside or near a window overnight so it can soak up the moon's cleansing energy. Let the moon wash away any impurities and give your crystal a sense of being able to last.

Cleansing Malachite Jewelry

Even though you can use the same methods to cleanse Malachite jewelry and raw crystals, it's better to use more gentle methods when cleansing crystal jewelry.

Here are the best ways to cleanse bracelets and necklaces made of Malachite.

How To Cleanse A Malachite Bracelet

If you have a bracelet, you shouldn't burn sage or incense near it because the smoke could be too strong and damage the wire.

Also, if your Malachite bracelet gets wet, the wire can rust and break.

We suggest that you gently cleanse your Malachite bracelets with either the sun or the moonlight. You can just put your bracelet in the sun or moonlight for a few hours.

Cleansing your Malachite jewelry and crystals is a great way to keep them open to the energies of growth and sustainability.
