How To Cleanse Turquoise

How To Cleanse Turquoise

Turquoise is a well-known stone of protection . This greenish-blue crystal is also known to emit a strong healing energy.

It's important to cleanse your Turquoise to unleash its full potential.

Should You Cleanse Turquoise?

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 Turquoise to break, which signals something different than losing your Turquoise.

Turquoise is believed to emit strong energy and is prized for its protective and calming powers.

Turquoise is thought to protect its user from harm and to deflect negative energy. So the first reason you should cleanse Turquoise 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 Turquoise crystal may start to lose its potency over time. A good cleanse will help bring back its original energy.

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

Now that you understand why it's vital to cleanse your Turquoise, let's look at different methods for doing so.

How To Cleanse Turquoise

There are many ways to cleanse your Turquoise. 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 popular ways to cleanse Turquoise crystals is with running water.

You only need a bowl of water and a Turquoise crystal. For a few minutes, place the crystal under flowing water. Visualize feelings of tranquility flowing freely about you when the crystal is submerged in water.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Sage, which is recognized for its cleaning and purifying characteristics, is an amazing option to cleanse your Turquoise.

Simply burn some sage and waft the smoke over the crystal to cleanse it. You may even leave your crystal in the smoke for a few minutes longer for a more thorough cleansing.

Incense can also be used to cleanse Turquoise. Start by lighting one end of an incense stick on fire and letting it burn down to smoke. Then, for a complete cleansing, hold your crystal in the smoke for a few minutes. When using incense for cleansing, it is important to leave windows open to let the stale air outside.

Cleansing With Sunlight

Cleansing with sunlight is a very popular option for most stones. To cleanse Turquoise with sunlight, simply place your stone in direct sunlight for a few hours. Make sure you don't leave it out for too long as it may cause some fading to your beautiful stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

Crystals can also be cleansed effectively by moonlight. To use moonlight to purify your Turquoise, simply leave it out in the open or on a windowsill when the Moon is out. The cleansing power of the moonlight will restore the stone to its original state of purity.

Cleansing Turquoise Jewelry

The methods previously discussed are useful for cleansing raw stones, but cleansing your Turquoise jewelry requires a more delicate touch.

How To Cleanse A Turquoise Bracelet

To begin, we recommend avoiding a water cleanse for Turquoise bracelets because the water can erode the string that holds your beautiful bracelet together.

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

A sun or moon bath, on the other hand, is recommended for cleansing Turquoise bracelets.

How To Cleanse A Turquoise Necklace

We recommend using the same methods for cleansing a Turquoise 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.


Cleansing your Turquoise crystals and jewelry is a fantastic way to keep them receptive to energies of protection and calm.

Now that you know how to cleanse Turquoise, you can keep it in perfect shape so it can continue to work its wonder in your life!
