Moss Agate, also known as the "Mocha stone" is named after the Arabian city of Mocha, Yemen. It is known for its ability of bringing people down to earth.
But, to get the most out of the properties of your Moss Agate, you need to know how and when to cleanse it.
Should You Cleanse Moss Agate?
Cleansing crystals is an important part of using them for healing. It helps to get rid of any bad or unwanted energies in the crystals and gives you a fresh start.
Moss Agate is known to give off strong energy and is especially valued for its ability to ground and calm.
Moss Agate is thought to help people feel calm on the inside. Without a thorough cleansing, your Moss Agate won't work to its full potential. You'll waste its powerful energies and potential by not using it.
Also, the power of your Moss Agate crystal may start to fade over time. Its original energy can be brought back with a good cleanse.
Lastly, cleansing your Moss Agate will help cleanse and purify your own energy fields, especially if you use it or wear it often.
Cleansing your Moss Agate is a no-brainer. Now, let's talk about how to do it.
How To Cleanse Moss Agate
There are several ways to cleanse your Moss Agate, and we'll discuss the most popular methods below:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Water is one of the easiest things you can use to clean your Moss Agate. Just hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the peaceful energies flowing back into the stone.
Cleansing With Salt
Salt is another thing you can use to cleanse your Moss Agate crystal. 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 Moss Agate because they are known to have cleansing and purifying properties.
To cleanse with sage, simply burn some sage and blow the smoke over your Moss Agate. You can also hold the crystal in the smoke for a few more minutes to get a really good cleanse.
To cleanse with incense, light the end of the stick and let the fire burn for a few seconds, until there is only smoke but no flame. Like with sage, waft the smoke over your Moss Agate to give it a deep clean. When doing this type of cleanse, make sure your windows are open so that the negative energies can flow out.
Cleansing With Sunlight
Most stones are often cleansed by putting them in the sun. To use sunlight to clean Moss Agate, just put the stone in direct sunlight for a few hours. Make sure you don't leave it out for too long, or your beautiful stone may start to fade.
Cleansing With Moonlight
Moonlight cleansing is another common and powerful method. Leave your Moss Agate outside or on a window sill. Let the moon purify your crystal and bring its energy of being rooted back.

It's the same with water. You should never let water get into your bracelet because it can cause the wire to rust and break.
If you want to cleanse your Moss Agate bracelet in a gentle way, we suggest using sunlight or moonlight. Just put your bracelet in direct sunlight or moonlight for a few hours and let the cleansing energies do their job.

For cleansing a Moss Agate necklace, follow the same steps as for cleansing a bracelet. You can soak in the sun or moon, or you can use salt or rice.
Make sure not to put your necklace in water or burn sage too close to the wires that hold it together.
Cleansing your Moss Agate jewelry and crystals is a great way to keep them open to calming and grounding energies.
