Can You Overcharge your Crystals in the Sun?

If you’ve been working with crystals for any length of time you’ve probably heard about the recommendation to “charge” your crystals in the sun over & over again.

Can You Overcharge your Crystals in the Sun?

Submitted Question:

“I’ve heard that leaving crystals out in the sun can overcharge them & cause some kind of negative effect.  Hibiscus Moon how do you feel about that?  And how did you deal w/ that for your crystal in your garden fountain?”

charging crystals in the sun
This person was referring to this fountain in my garden. At the top of the fountain where the water rushes out I keep a large clear crystal quartz point.

That crystal is there all the time.

I intentionally  do that so that the water is picking up the vibrational frequencies from the clear quartz & pouring them into the fountain.

The birds (all wildlife actually!) absolutely love that fountain since I put that clear quartz in there.

And, I know it’s because the water is getting that specific vibrational frequency as it rushes by the crystal.

The negative ions there must be better than any other bird bath in the neighborhood! I […]

Will my crystals still be powerful if they faded in the sunlight?

I love this recent question I received recently about crystals fading in the sunlight. It covered many angles. LURVE IT! It’s a loaded question and — right up my geo-geek ally!

Q: You mentioned not to put certain crystals that are very strongly pigmented in the sun, because they fade. Why does the pigment fade in the sun, and how does that affect the crystal if it does fade? Is the pigment related to the quantity of the mineral inside the crystal? And if so would the difference in pigment in a crystal affect how well it performs? i.e. If I get a piece of amethyst that is only lightly pigmented, does that mean a heavier pigmented amethyst would outperform the lighter one (i.e. it is of better quality?)

Well, why some colors fade really has to do with photon physics or particle physics. Oh yeah! I said “PHYSICS” …and you’re gonna like it!

First, let’s simply explain what a photon is.
