Purification and recharging:
Not all stones can be cleaned in the same way. Some do not like the sun, others the water or the moon, etc. It is therefore important to respect the needs of each stone.
For an effective purification of the moonstone, 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, rock crystal, flower of life, fumigation
As for purifying moonstone, we recommend purifying 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: "bring me sweetness and harmony". 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 moonstone 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 moonstone. 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 crystalline 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 a moonstone is with sacred geometry. We advise you to use the high vibratory rates of flower of life, scallops...
Recommendation: Tibetan bowl or ultrasound are not recommended for moonstone, because the vibrations created would weaken the moonstone and make it more sensitive.
We also advise you not to use salt in direct reloading with the moonstone, which would be too abrasive for it.
After a while, your stone will have transmitted all of its energy and will need effective recharging.
We invite you to purify it and recharge it regularly.
If you use it daily or during an intense period (exam type), we recommend that you purify it every day to cleanse it of negative energies and recharge it 3 times a week to bring it positive energies.
If you use it more rarely, you can purify it once a week and recharge it once a month.
Place your crystal in a container with demineralised water and place it exposed to the rays of a full moon. Please use this technique only on your tumbled moonstones, as prolonged water exposure can alter the metals that make up your jewelry.
