Tanzanite is a lovely blue stone. The stone was discovered in northern Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro. It is believed to impart greater levels of consciousness in those who keep it near.
Getting the most out of your Tanzanite's properties requires knowing how and when to cleanse it.
Should You Cleanse Tanzanite?
Some believe that cleansing helps to remove any negative energy that the crystal may have absorbed, while others do it as a way to purify the stone before using it for healing. Excess negative energies can cause your Tanzanite to break, which signals something different than losing your Tanzanite.
Tanzanite is considered a transmitter of higher consciousness and hope energies
Tanzanite is thought to stimulate intuition and raise one's consciousness. So, in order to get the most out of your Tanzanite, you should cleanse it as soon as you obtain it. This will assist you in realizing the full power of the crystal.
In addition, your Tanzanite crystal may start to lose its potency over time. A good cleanse will help bring back its original energy.
Finally, cleansing your Tanzanite can assist to ground you and link you to the earth, which is always useful if you're feeling scattered or disconnected.
Now that you know why it's important to cleanse your Tanzanite, let's explore some ways to do it.
How To Cleanse Tanzanite
There are several ways to cleanse your Tanzanite, and we'll discuss the most popular methods below:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
One of the simplest methods for cleansing your Tanzanite is with water. Simply hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the energies of hope flowing back into the stone.
Cleansing With Salt
Mix equal parts of salt and warm water in a bowl. Then place your Tanzanite in the bowl and allow it to soak for as long as you need. Typically, 5 to 15 minutes is more than enough.
Afterward, remove your Tanzanite and make sure to rinse it off with clean water.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
Sage and incense are great ways to cleanse your Tanzanite, as they're known for their cleansing and purifying properties.
To cleanse with sage, simply burn some sage and waft the smoke over your Tanzanite. 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 Tanzanite 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
The majority of stones, including Tanzanite, benefit substantially from sunlight cleaning. To cleanse your stone, place it in direct sunlight for a few hours. However, do not leave it out for too long as it can fade your stone.
Cleansing With Moonlight
Moonlight is a common and effective approach to cleanse crystals. Leave your Tanzanite outside overnight or on a windowsill to absorb the moon's cleaning effects. Allow the moon to wash away any impurities and restore your crystal's sense of greater consciousness.
Cleansing Tanzanite Jewelry
When it comes to cleansing Tanzanite crystal jewelry, it's best to use gentler techniques.
Cleansing your Tanzanite jewelry is simple and fun - here's what we recommend:
How To Cleanse An Tanzanite Bracelet
We don't advise burning sage or incense near your bracelet since the smoke could be too strong and injure the wire.
Furthermore, if your Tanzanite bracelet becomes damp, the wire can rust and disintegrate.
We recommend gently cleaning your Tanzanite bracelets with either sunlight or moonlight. Simply leave your bracelet in the sunlight or moonlight for a few hours.
How To Cleanse An Tanzanite Necklace
In many ways, cleansing a Tanzanite necklace is the same as cleansing a bracelet.
Do not expose the necklace to water or smoke from sage or incense. You can attain the same results by using the sun or the moon as a cleanser. You can also use a rice or salt bath, neither of which require any water, to cleanse your necklace.
Now that you know how and why to cleanse your Tanzanite, it's time to get started. Pick your favorite method and get cleansing.
Soon enough, your Tanzanite will be attracting more higher consciousness and hope into your life than ever before!
