Charging Crystals

Crystals need to be charged now and again. This helps revitalize the stone, and helps make sure it’s energies are functioning optimally. There are several simple methods to charge your crystal.

MOONLIGHT / MOONBATH

Both sun and moon are very clearing and energizing. Though you can charge your stones in either, moonlight is the suggested method. Sun has far more potential to damage stones.

Leave the crystals in the moonlight overnight, or over multiple nights. Once you bring them inside, they should feel much more energetic.

Be aware if it is going to rain overnight, as some crystals do not do well in moisture, and the moisture plus cold can split or crack other crystals. Know your crystals.

CRYSTAL GRID

A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals or stones on a specific geometric shape. It focuses the Universal Life Force in a particular way for a particular purpose.

  • Gather a group of Quartz crystals (6+).
    Point them inward in a circle.
  • Place the crystal or stone you want charged in the center of the circle.
  • Leave it there for 24+ hours.
  • There are far more elaborate forms and types of crystal grids to look into, as well, if this is something that resonates with you.

BURYING IN EARTH

Burying crystals for a week or more will replenish a crystal’s energy very effectively. This is especially true under a full moon.
 ​
This method is especially effective for grounding stones, such as:

  • Black Tourmaline
  • Red Jasper
  • Hematite
  • Smoky Quartz
  • Ammonite
  • All black stones

We suggest burying in a protective cloth or leather. You can bury them without it, but if you do, make sure it is a crystal that can be washed off in water afterward, and one that will not be damaged from moisture in the soil.

​OTHER METHODS FOR CLEARING CRYSTALS

Place stones on a large crystal cluster for 24+ hours, or until they feel charged.

Put crystals underneath a pyramid, or inside a hollow, copper frame pyramid to charge them.

You can also place stones among the leaves of a growing, healthy plant for 24+ hours.
