Hi. I have a couple of questions:
(1). is it OK to soak Black Obsidian stones in water and sea salt to clear them? Can they be soaked together or should they each be soaked separately? If you do not recommend soaking them, how about covering them overnight in just plain sea salt?
(2). I have some Blue and Green Aventurine. Is it OK to combine these stones with the Black Obsidian when carrying them (same pocket/pouch) or should they be separated?
Thanks very much.
Thank you for your inquiry. It is fine to soak your crystals together in water with salt. If I am using salt water to clear a crystal, I like to use Pink Himalayan Salt. You could also use a gentle castile soap and/or running water. Additional methods to cleanse your crystals can be found here:
Where you place or where them is entirely up to you. You can combine them all in one pocket if that feels best, though sometimes I like to have one or two one each side for balance. Black Obsidian is volcanic glass, and can break more easily than other crystals particularly if you have a thinner piece. If this is the case you may want to keep it wrapped up separate from your other ones.
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a complement to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. The information offered here is based on a combination of my own personal experiences and that of others on using crystals for healing. My hope is that you will let your own intuition guide your path in working with crystals as well.
