As your chalice or athame is a tool of magick, so too are gems and stones. And with all tools, they need to be cleansed of past associations and lingering vibrations. Here are a few simple methods that I have found to be very effective. It can be used for one or many stones.
1)Fill a non metallic bowl with warm spring water and add a healthy dose of sea salt. Using your index finger stir the mixture and add your stones. Stir the mixture and stones and leave them undisturbed over night. Remove the stones from the mixture, and cleanse with spring water to remove any remnants of salt. Place the stones to dry and charge in the sun, removing them at night for 3 days.
2) Fill a non metallic bowl with sea salt and bury the stones in the salt over night, rinse with spring water to remove any salt residue and place to dry and charge in the sun for 3 days, removing them at night.
* Don't use this process for use on shiny or highly reflective stones as the salt can remove some of it's glean.
Note: Tap water that has been boiled and cooled can substitute for spring water and regular salt can be used in place of sea salt.
This depends on how often you are using your stones. Perhaps you have been using a bloodstone every day for a week for health purposes. Your stone will no doubt be in need of cleansing and charging. About every month or two.
