9. Can I Put All My Crystals Together?
NO, please don’t. I beg you to place each of your crystal in a separate box so that the energies of the crystals don’t harm you. In fact, when you place multiple crystals in the same box, there could be chances of two enemy planetary stones fighting forces.
For example, keeping citrine and amethyst together means keeping Sun and Saturn together. This will create monetary loss and injuries because Saturn and Sun are enemy planets. You should not even wear all your crystals together. It is best to store each crystal in a tiny pouch or even a tissue paper so that it doesn’t scratch each other.
10. Do Crystals Lose Their Energy?
No, crystals are alive creatures. And as energy cannot be created or lost, but transferred from one thing to another, crystals don’t lose their energy. They soak in the energy of mother earth to take birth. You might see crystals break. A broken crystal doesn’t mean loss of energy; it merely means your crystal has done its job or you need to gift it to someone else.
Crystals never lose their energy. Even in case of faded crystals, there is no loss of energy in actuality. Don’t worry, your crystals will remain powerful for billions of years more just as it was meant to be.
