Cleansing & Charging Rainbow Crystals
~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.
~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy. A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.
