For an effective purification of the amethyst, we advise you to purify it as soon as you receive it. Indeed, even if we purify all the stones ourselves, they have been manipulated by other people before you. It is therefore important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you.
- Water, moon, flower of life or fumigation
Regarding the purification of theamethyst, we recommend that you purify it by placing it under running water for a few seconds while delivering an intention to it. We recommend that you take inspiration from its virtues. For example, you could give him the following intention: "help me to find calm and serenity to overcome the difficult trials of my life". The purer the water, the more effective the purification will be. Be sure to dry your jewelry well so as not to damage it.
White sage and Palo Santo are also good ways to purify amethyst and rid it of bad energies. Light your sacred grass then you can then pass it under this smoke with strong purifying powers. This gentle, yet 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. In addition, jewelry made of a material other than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver, etc.) cannot be in contact with water for too long.
Exposure to moonlight is an excellent method to purify and recharge your amethyst. Place it so that it receives its rays, preferably during the full moon and let it soak in.
Reloading is also possible on a cluster of quartz or a geode. For this method, leave your stone/jewel in your geode for at least a day.
The 3rd possible method to recharge an amethyst stone is with sacred geometry. We advise you to use the high vibratory rates of flower of life, scallops...
I'amethyst is a stone bringing soft virtues and discharges according to the use that you make of it. To benefit from its virtues daily, we invite you to purify it and recharge it regularly.
If you use it daily, we recommend that you purify it once a week to clean it of negative energies and recharge it twice a week to bring it positive energies.
If you use it more rarely, you can purify it once a month and recharge it 2 to 3 times a month.
