Opalite is a beautiful synthetic stone with a pearly white sheen. The stone is often nicknamed the "ice cream stone" due to its milky white textures and cool blue hues. It is known for its clarity properties.
Getting the most out of your Opalite's properties requires knowing how and when to cleanse it.
Should You Cleanse Opalite?
Some people think that cleansing helps get rid of any bad energy that the crystal may have picked up, while others do it to purify the stone before they use it to heal.
Opalite is thought to send out energies of clarity and positivity.
People think that opal can make good energy flow. So, the first reason to cleanse Opalite is that if you haven't cleansed so in a while, you won't be able to use it to its fullest.
Second, your Opalite won't be able to draw in as much positive energy over time.
Lastly, cleansing your Opalite will help purify your own energy, especially if you keep the stone nearby or wear it as jewelry.
Now that you know why cleansing your Opalite is important, let's look at some ways to do it.
How To Cleanse Opalite
There are a few ways to cleanse Opalite, and we'll talk about the most common ones here:
- in water
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Running water is one of the most common ways to cleanse Opalite.
All you need is a bowl of water and an Opalite crystal. Just hold your crystal under running water for a few minutes and imagine the energy of positivity coming back into the crystal.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
To use sage to cleanse your Opalite, just hold it in one hand and waft 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 while you do this. This will help get rid of energy that isn't needed.
You could also use incense to cleanse your Opalite. 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
Most stones, including Opalite, benefit greatly from sunshine cleansing. To cleanse your stone, put it in the sun for a few hours. Don't 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 as sunlight. To use moonlight to cleanse your Opalite, just put it outside or on a window sill at night or early in the morning, when the Moon is brightest. The moonlight will wash away the stone's dirt and bring back its energy of clarity.
Cleansing Opalite Jewelry
Even though you can use the same methods to cleanse Opalite jewelry and raw crystals, it's better to use more gentle methods when cleansing crystal jewelry.
Here are the best ways to cleanse your bracelets and necklaces made of Opalite.
How To Cleanse A Opalite Bracelet
We recommend you stay away from sage and incense because the smoke can get too strong and damage the wire of the bracelet.
Water is the same way. It's never a good idea to get your bracelet wet, because the wire can rust and break if it does.
If you want a gentle way to cleanse your Opalite bracelet, we suggest using either the sun or the moon. Just put your bracelet in direct sunlight or moonlight for a few hours and let the cleansing energies do their work.
How To Cleanse A Opalite Necklace
We suggest cleansing an Opalite necklace the same way you would cleanse a bracelet. You could use either the sun or the moon.
Just make sure not to get the wire in the necklace wet, because that could damage it. If you have to use water, you should only hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds.
Cleansing your Opalite jewelry and crystals keeps them open to positive and clear energy.
You can maintain your Opalite in wonderful form now that you know how to cleanse it so it may continue to work its magic in your life.
