Q&A: Cleansing Pyrite

Hibiscus Moon cleansing 9 Comments

This is a really practical question I received recently about cleansing pyrite specifically & think its a great 1 to share:
Q:

What’s the best method to cleanse pyrite?  I wouldn’t want to do a salt bath on it, so I’m supposing sound?

 

 

A:

You don’t want to go with water on any iron-containing stones (like pyrite) b/c you’ll cause them to rust. No bueno.

So, yep, I’d say sound. In fact, this is my favorite method for re-tuning crystals now & the most practical, IMHO.

Q&A: Chakra Stone Set

Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Crystals, energy work 8 Comments

Today’s post is about putting together a chakra stone set. You can put 1 together relatively inexpensively if you know what stones to go for.

Here’s a question that I recently received:

Q:

  • I’m putting together my chakra stone set & am curious if it’s best to use the same style/shape stone for the set? For example should they all be tumbled? Or can they be a mix of tumbled & points?
  • Also, when buying a pendulum, which stone is best? Should we use our intuition or is there one stone that is best for healing?
  •  
    A:
    For your chakra set, it really won’t matter. Get what you can get. Natural is always best but sometimes you just can’t find them in that particular stone. If you have an easy choice though, always go natural! That being said, here’s an example set I usually recommend to all my students:

    The stones pictured above are very easy to find & are inexpensice. I usually like to have a choice of 2 stones for each chakra on hand except for the crown here…no specific reason for that:

    • Root chakra (red): red jasper + hematite
    • Sacral chakra (orange but represented here by the brown bag): orange calcite & carnelian
    • Solar plexus chakra (yellow but represented here by the camel bag): citrine & tiger’s eye
    • Heart chakra (green): rose quartz & green aventurine
    • Throat chakra (blue): blue lace agate & sodalite
    • Third Eye chakra (indigo): amethyst & lepidolite
    • Crown chakra (white or light lilac but represented here by the black bag): clear quartz
    • I also have an amethyst pendulum pictured here for sensing energies & balancing each chakra (we teach how to do that in our course)

    As for the pendulum, you don’t need amethyst…get what’s calling to you most. Yep, that’s what will work best for you!
