How to Care for Your Crystals
Did you know that some crystals are not water-safe or sun-safe? This is important to know so you can prevent damaging your crystals accidentally. It can also help you choose the correct methods of cleansing and charging for your crystals.
Cleansing or washing certain crystals in water can cause them to dissolve or absorb water which later damages them. Charging certain crystals in direct sunlight can change a crystal's color, cause their color to fade, make them brittle, and sometimes even break them.
It's crucial to take good care of your crystals because they can be valuable allies in your spiritual practice. Protecting them from harm, filth, dust, scratches, or stains is part of caring for them.
This guide will easily help you determine which crystals are water-safe and sun-safe, so you can take the best care of your crystals.
