I recently started getting into healing crystals and bought some off of your site, thank you by the way! The ones I got were beautiful. I have a couple questions for you though. I put an Amethyst out in the sun for a while before reading that you aren't meant to do so, did I damage my crystal? Should I just make sure not to put it in the sunlight too often? I did the same with my Rose Quartz. Will my crystal be okay? Is there anything I can do for these crystals to help them if I've harmed them?
Thanks for your support of Healing Crystals! I’m glad you are enjoying your new crystals. It is recommended some crystals, including all types of Quartz except Clear Quartz, not be left in the sun for too long because their color can fade. This applies to Amethyst (purple Quartz) and Rose Quartz. If the color does fade, there isn’t any way to restore it, but the crystal will still have energy and be useful. If your Amethyst and Rose Quartz didn’t fade, then there was no harm done in putting them in the sunlight. They are just reenergized now :-) In the future, you should limit their time in the sun to only 15 minutes or choose another way to clear and recharge them. This article has some suggestions. Please let me know if I can help with anything else. I hope your journey is blessed with Love and Light.
