Amazonite is a beautiful green to blue-green gemstone known for its calming and balancing properties. Cleansing amazonite is a way to remove any negative energies or impurities it may have absorbed over time. Here are a few methods to cleanse your amazonite:
1. Running Water:
- One of the simplest ways to cleanse amazonite is to hold it under running water, such as a natural stream or tap water. Allow the water to flow over the stone for a few minutes while visualizing any negative energies being washed away. You can also gently rub the stone with your fingers while doing this. Pat the stone dry with a clean cloth afterward.
2. Salt Water:
- Another effective method is to immerse your amazonite in a bowl of saltwater. Use a mild solution of saltwater, such as sea salt or Himalayan salt, and let the stone soak for a few hours or overnight. Afterward, rinse it under running water to remove any residual salt.
- Smudging is a traditional Native American method of using smoke from sacred herbs (such as sage, cedar, or palo santo) to cleanse gemstones. Pass your amazonite through the smoke while setting your intention for cleansing and purifying the stone.
4. Selenite Charging Plate:
- Selenite is known for its ability to cleanse and charge other crystals. Place your amazonite on a selenite charging plate or near a piece of selenite overnight to clear any negative energies.
5. Visualization and Intent:
- Hold the amazonite in your hands and visualize a bright, white light surrounding the stone. Imagine this light cleansing and purifying the crystal, removing any negativity or impurities. Set your intention for the stone to be energetically clear.
6. Sunlight and Moonlight:
- You can also cleanse amazonite by placing it in direct sunlight or moonlight for a few hours or overnight. Sunlight is especially effective for clearing negative energies, while moonlight can infuse the stone with positive, calming energy.
7. Earth Burial:
- Burying your amazonite in the earth for a day or two can also cleanse it. Be sure to mark the spot where you buried it and dig it up carefully, as the stone can be easily lost.
8. Sound Cleansing:
- Use sound vibrations from a singing bowl, tuning fork, or a bell to cleanse your amazonite. The sound waves can help dislodge any negative energies attached to the stone.
Choose the cleansing method that resonates with you and feels right for your amazonite. It’s a good practice to cleanse your amazonite periodically, especially if you use it for healing or meditation purposes, as it can become energetically saturated over time.
