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 efficient ruby purification, 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 therefore important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you.
Water, Sun, Rock crystal, Flower of life, Fumigation
As for the purification of the Ruby, we recommend that you purify it by placing it under running, salted or distilled 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 passion and happiness in my life". 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 the ruby 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. Moreover, jewelry made of another material than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver...) cannot be in contact with water for too long.
Exposure to the sun's rays is an excellent method to purify and recharge your ruby. Place it so that it receives its rays and then soak up its energy. Recharging is also possible on a crystal quartz cluster or geode. For this method, leave your stone/jewel in your geode for at least one day. The 3rd possible method to recharge a ruby 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 an exam), we recommend that you purify it every day to cleanse it of negative energies and recharge it 3 times a week to bring positive energies to it. If you use it less frequently, you can purify it once a week and recharge it once a month.
