How To Cleanse Rhodochrosite

Rhodochrosite is a soft pink stone. The stone's name is derived from the Greek word "rhodos," which means "rose," and refers to its brilliant pink and rose-red tones. It is well-known for its romantic properties.

As a result, Rhodochrosite needs be cleansed to maintain its excellent condition.

Should You Cleanse Rhodochrosite?

Crystal cleansing is an essential step in the crystal healing process. It aids in the removal of any bad or undesired energy from the crystals and allows you to begin with a clear slate.

Rhodochrosite is known to emit powerful energy and is specifically valued for its love and joy properties.

Rhodochrosite is thought to heal emotional traumas and lead to deeper emotional ties with others. The first reason you should cleanse Rhodochrosite is that if your stone hasn't been cleansed in a while, you won't be able to tap into its full power.

In addition, your Rhodochrosite crystal may start to lose its potency over time. A good cleanse will help bring back its original energy.

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

Finally, cleansing your Rhodochrosite will aid in the cleansing and purification of your own energy fields, especially if you use or wear it frequently.

Now that you understand why cleansing Rhodochrosite is vital, let's have a look at the various methods you can use.

How To Cleanse Rhodochrosite

There are many ways to cleanse your Rhodochrosite. Here are some of the most popular methods:

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

Cleansing With Water

One of the most common ways to cleanse Rhodochrosite crystals is with running water.

You only need a bowl of water and a Rhodochrosite crystal. For a few minutes, place the crystal under flowing water. Visualize sensations of joy flowing freely around you when the crystal is submerged in water.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Simply hold your Rhodochrosite in one hand and blow the smoke from sage over it with your other hand to purify it.

While doing so, put your focus on cleansing the stone of whatever negative energy it may have. This will aid in the release of undesired energy.

You could also use incense to cleanse your Rhodochrosite. Begin by lighting the tip of your incense stick until it smolders. Then, for a few moments, blow the smoke over your crystal to cleanse it of any negative energy. It's critical to have air circulation when doing this, so open a window to let the negative energy out and fresh air in.

Cleansing With Sunlight

Sunlight cleansing is a preferred method for most stones. Simply set your stone in direct sunshine for a few hours to cleanse it with sunlight. Make sure you don't keep it out for too long as it can fade your gorgeous stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

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

Cleansing Rhodochrosite Jewelry

Although you can cleanse Rhodochrosite jewelry and raw crystals using the same methods, it is recommended to use gentler methods when cleansing crystal jewelry.

Here are the recommended methods for cleansing Rhodochrosite bracelets and necklaces.

How To Cleanse A Rhodochrosite Bracelet

First, we suggest avoiding a water cleanse for Rhodochrosite bracelets - simply because the water can corrode the string that ties your beautiful bracelet together.

Second, we do not recommend burning sage or incense near your bracelet because the smoke may be too strong and burn the wire.

What we do recommend, however, is a sun or moon bath for cleansing Rhodochrosite bracelets.

How To Cleanse A Rhodochrosite Necklace

We recommend using the same methods for cleansing a Rhodochrosite necklace as we do for bracelets. Sunlight and moonlight are both great options.

Just be sure to avoid getting the necklace wet, as this can damage the wire. If you must use water, we recommend holding your crystal under running water for only 15-30 seconds.


Rhodochrosite crystals and jewelry benefit greatly from periodic cleansing in order to maintain their openness to the love and joyful energies that they attract.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your Rhodochrosite crystals remain in pristine condition and continue to bring positive changes in your life.
