All gemstones have magnetic powers. It’s believed that the vibration and frequency they emit can help us in healing and a number of other positive ways because their energy is absorbed by our bodies. Because of this, it is important to cleanse gemstones. Throughout the world, people have developed varying rituals and methods to cleanse gemstones. Below are a few.
1. Fire. In order to cleanse your stone from negative vibes, gently pass the gemstone through the flame of a lit candle until it feels clear. You can feel that it is totally cleared by using your intuition.
2. Water. By using water, you can clear gemstones in three ways. Go to a brook or river and hold your gemstones so that the water covers and rushes through them – do this for several minutes. You can also place it outside in the rain for several hours. Another option is to use your faucet in washing away the negative vibrations in your gemstones. However, water is not effective method in clearing soft stones.
3. Smudging. First, lit a candle. Use it to light one end of the smudge stick. After extinguishing the fire and there is only smoke coming out from the smudge stick, get the gemstone and gently pass it through the smoke for several minutes.
4. Earth. The principle of gemstone clearing through earth is rooted on the idea that gemstones are well taken care of by Earth. Burying it will replace the negative vibrations into positive energies. Look for an ideal ground to bury the gemstone for one day. Make sure to place a marker so that you can easily identify the ground where you have buried it.

You can place it for moon exposure overnight.
It is a important that we maintain not only their quality but their capabilities to extent their energy. You can follow one of the methods on cleansing gemstones above or even a combination to ensure that gemstones do only emit positive energies.
