Purification and recharging:
Not all stones can be cleaned in the same way. Some do not like the sun, others water or the moon, etc. It is therefore important to respect the needs of each stone. For an effective purification of turquoise, we advise you to purify it as soon as you receive it. Indeed, even if we purify all the stones ourselves, they have been handled by other people before you. It is thus important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you.
Water, rock crystal, flower of life, fumigation
As for the purification of turquoise, we recommend that you purify it by placing it under spring or river water for a few seconds while delivering an intention. We recommend that you take inspiration from its virtues. For example, you could give it the following intention: "bring me calm and empathy". The purer the water, the more effective the purification. Be sure to dry your jewelry well to avoid damaging it. White sage and Palo Santo are also good ways to purify turquoise and rid it of bad energy. Light your sacred herb and then you can pass it under this smoke with strong purifying powers. This gentle but effective technique can also be used to recharge your stones.
Important : Never drink, store or use water that has been used to purify your stones. Also, jewelry made of a material other than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver...) cannot be in contact with water for too long.
The recharging of your turquoise is possible on a cluster of crystalline quartz or an amethyst geode. For this method, leave your stone / jewel in your geode for at least one day. The 3rd possible method to recharge a turquoise stone is with sacred geometry. We advise you to use the high vibratory rates of flower of life, scallops...
After a while, your stone will have transmitted all its energy and will need an effective recharging. We invite you to purify and recharge it regularly. If you use it daily or during an intense period (such as exams), we recommend that you purify it once a week to cleanse it of negative energies and recharge it twice a week to bring positive energies to it. If you use it more rarely, you can purify it once a month and recharge it 2 to 3 times a month.
Place your turquoise in river water for a few minutes to deeply recharge it. Please use this technique only on your rolled rock turquoise stones, as prolonged exposure to water can alter the metals that make up your jewelry. We do not recommend sun purification for turquoise.
