METHODS TO CLEANSE A CRYSTAL:
SMUDGING WITH WOOD: The smoke tendril from wood is thinner than that of herbs, but it is still very effective. Using a stick of seasoned wood like palo santo, carefully light the end of the stick and then hold it downward, allowing the flame to lick up the wood before you blow it out. Hold your crystal in the smoke for as long as you intuitively feel is right. Have a dish, bowl, large seashell, or other receptacle nearby for catching ashes.
SUNLIGHT: Full sunlight will cleanse your stones and also charge them with masculine energy. Set your stones either outside or indoors on a sunny windowsill at dawn, leaving them until dusk. Some crystals will fade in sunlight, so this method is not recommended for stones like amethyst, aventurine, beryl, colored calcite, aquamarine, fluorite, and citrine.
MOONLIGHT: Full moonlight will cleanse your stones and also charge them with feminine energy, as well as energies specific to that astrological full moon. You can also do this on a new moon. Set your crystals either outside or indoors on window that will face the moon and leave out until morning. Even if there are clouds and you can’t physically see the moon, the lunar energy will still shine through them.

As Nikola Tesla said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Everything in the universe vibrates, and crystals bring about healing through entrainment and […]

Druzy crystals take hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of years to form. As molten rock cools, gas trapped inside causes gaps in the rock. As ground water flows through these gaps year after year, the minerals crystalize into beautiful sparkling blankets of crystals!
Druzy attracts light and joy to a space. When worn, it increases energy, strength, mental clarity, and is used for balancing all of the chakras. If used in meditation, it stimulates the movement of the Kundalini all the way through the body and up into the crown chakra. Druzy amplifies positive energies and is said to stabilize the aura. It creates auric balance by drawing out negative energies, and pulling in positivity and feelings of harmony in its place. This gemstone is particularly helpful for spiritual practices and lightwork, and can empower the energy of other crystals as well. Placing or wearing another stone with your druzy for a day or longer enhances both of their energies. Check out our druzy jewelry on our website or in all Mexicali Blues stores!
