Legendary Cleansing Directions

Crystals, minerals and stones are thought to have sensitive energy fields that can absorb energy from humans and other sources. Your stones, at one time or another, have been handled by other admirers. Cleansing the object should remove any imprinted energy.

For jewelry made with sterling silver wire or for stones without glue or altered in any way: Submerge in a solution of water (spring water is preferable but not necessary) and a pinch of sea salt for approximately two- to seven-days, then rinse.
