All our crystals are cleansed from any negative energies and charged from the full moon. Crystals absorb positive and negative energies so it is a good idea to cleanse and energise your crystals about once a month. Here are some ways to cleanse your crystals at home:
1. Leave them out under the full moon's moonlight to re-boost their energy.
2. Smudging: Light a white sage or palo santo smudge stick (with a white candles' flame, not directly from a lighter or match) and allow the smoke to go over the crystal.
3. Sound: Use a singing bowl to re-cleanse the crystal’s frequency.
4. Intention: set an intention to clear the crystal from any stagnant energy, feel the stone being cleared and state “clear, clear, clear”. Intention is quick and also very powerful.
Note: Trinkets should never be cleansed in the ocean or buried underground so please avoid these otherwise popular options.
Please note that our trinkets (jewellery, crowns and hair accessories)
are costume pieces and not suitable for everyday wear.
Look after your trinkets by not sleeping, exercising or swimming in them. Natural crystals, chains and wire are delicate and can break if dropped on a hard surface. Avoid using detergents or sprays while wearing.
Avoid bending, twisting or tightening posts/hooks/bails/wire settings on any of our crystals crowns and jewellery as this can damage them.
Trinkets with dried roses and rose buds require extra care. Try to avoid touching the flowers as they are very delicate and could detach. The flowers will fade over time. When not in use store in an air tight container away from sunlight to delay this.
All our chains are 304 Stainless Steel coated. Our stones are wrapped in tarnish-resistant brass plated wires. Some of the metals used may tarnish over time which can turn some people’s skin green. This is quite normal as it is the metals reacting to the environment.
If you have higher acidity in your skin, we advise to avoid wearing your studs for extended periods of time in sweaty conditions. Acidity in sweat can sometimes cause the crystal to detach from the backing over a period of time.
Water vs Crystals
It is very important to note that only some crystals can safely be placed in water, especially salt water. Some minerals will lose their glow/sheen, others may rust, and many can completely dissolve when submerged in water. While others can last in water for days and come out looking brand new.
A good rule of thumb to help you remember is: if the crystal's name ends in 'ite' don't put it in water.
WATER SAFE CRYSTALS
Carnelian (not safe in salt water)
Black Obsidian (may break)
WATER UNSAFE CRYSTALS
Fluorite (especially salt water)
