@Josie Novielli Moro, it depends to an extent what the gems in the ring are. For safety’s sake, I think the following is best (and jewellery runs in my family):

• For tarnish on the silver, toothpaste. Yes! One could also use vinegar or tomato ketchup, but I’d avoid those in this case, because both are weakly acidic, and could hurt your gems. Toothpaste is what I use on my silver jewellery, including a beautiful pendant with Paraibe (blue-green) Apatite, which is only a 5.5 on Mohs’ scale, and one with Fluorite, which is only a 4; so far it hasn’t done any harm.

For the gems themselves, polishing with a silk cloth works nicely to remove smears and spots from them. If you have a silk scarf that’s become a bit moth-eaten, don’t throw it away — it’ll be perfect for the job! If there’s more stubborn dirt on the gems, then the safest bet is to moisten a cotton bud with plain water and use it to gently polish away the smears.

Energic cleansing, on the other hand, gets trickier the more different crystal types are set in one piece of jewellery. For example, you might find Emerald and Heliodor set together in a ring or a brooch: they work fine together, partly because they’re both Beryls and partly because their powers complement one another: but Heliodor should be charged and cleansed with the energy of the Sun (or at least during daylight); whereas Emerald seems to prefer the energy of the Moon. Tricky, huh? In that scenario, there are alternatives: you could, for example, rest the brooch on a bed of brown rice for a few hours, as above (but make sure you discard the rice afterwards, as it will have.soaked up the bad energy, and eating it could be harmful). In fact, brown rice cleansing is probably the best way for you to cleanse all those gemstones in one go. Just put a few ounces of uncooked brown rice (it has to be brown; white rice is unnatural and won’t do the job) into a bowl, set your ring on the top, and leave it for four hours.

If that doesn’t feel right, or doesn’t work, then read on, because my next post, now I’ve addressed the individual questions, is going to reveal a couple of other cleansing techniques, which are especially helpful for a crystal(s) you have a very strong bond with.

Love and Light.

@Linda, that’s strange! I really need to know more about these growths. What colour(s) are they? It could be something that’s crystallised from a vapor in the air – I once worked in an office where there were numerous indoor plants, all with sticky leaves: no-one could figure out why, until I checked the plants’ leaves and discovered that the stickiness arose from dissolved sugar in the steam from my co-workers’ tea and coffee – or it could be something a little less mundane. Please could you get back to me and give me a full description?

Meantime, Amethyst is a safe crystal to use salt water on, or a very mild soap (it should be a neutral soap with no perfumes or bad chemicals). Gentle work with an old toothbrush is a good way to remove those deposits….. if they’re removable, and not part of your druzy’s evolution, that is.

Love and Light.

@Renny, yes, well spotted! Simply touching an affected crystal with a Selenite wand, or using the wand to draw a circle around it three times, is enough to remove any negative energy the crystal in question has picked up. This is because Selenite is pretty much packaged Moonlight, and is among the purest crystals in the crystal world. Other crystals which can be used the same way are Goshenite (Clear Beryl) and Petalite. Also, touching Black Tourmaline to an affected crystal, or touching an affected crystal to a Generator, can achieve the same effect, and is a very useful technique if you’re in a hurry.

Love and Light.

@Ted, Black Obsidian is a very powerful crystal and shouldn’t need cleansing. If you feel it to be losing its power, it’s more likely to be because it’s been working too hard to protect you lately, rather than because it’s retained any negative energy. Obsidian transmutes negative energy into positive, very much in the same manner as Black Tourmaline; since that negative energy never reaches the crystal, it can’t contaminate it.

There are two ways you can help your Obsidian:

• Bury it in the earth for seven days. Mother Earth, the mother of all crystals except Meteorite Peridot, will restore it to its pristine energy state.

• Leave it on an Amethyst druzy from twilight to dawn on the night of the Full Moon.

One of those techniques should work well, but on the off-chance it doesn’t, please come back and let us know. There are still more ways to bring your crystal back to life; if needs be, I can ask my own Obsidians what would be the best method.

Love and Light.

@Cherie Gambrielle, Carnelian is a form of cleansing stone (and so, so much more besides), but it’s for cleansing your aura and emotions, not for cleansing other crystals I’m afraid.

Love and Light.
