Crystals with water: what you need to know
At Beauty Stone we want to make sure you are enjoying your crystals as much as you can. We recommend cleansing and charging your crystals once a month but we also want you to be careful with what technique you use. We have created a go-to chart for those who like to cleanse and charge their crystals in water. This list also applies to those who like to take baths with their crystals or who wish to create crystal elixirs.
Below is a list of crystals that can go in water and those that cannot go in water. Certain types of crystals can be corrosive in water. Water can change the colour of certain minerals, cause rust, and some can dissolve. If you are unsure then I would recommend staying away from water, just to be sure.
Water Safe: clear quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, rose quartz, citrine, tigers eye, agate, snow quartz, aventurine, red jasper.
NOT water safe: aquamarine, turquoise, pyrite, ruby, moonstone, lapis lazuli, garnet, fluorite, amazonite, desert rose, gypsum, calcite, angelate, malachite, selenite, Celestine, carnelian, labradorite, lepidolite.
