I was told that once a crystal has lost it shine or power it becomes very dark with neg. energy. And it needs to be toss away, because its done its job. Now I would never do that because I love all my crystals, and I do clean and program them. But I have a friend that insist that you do this with any crystal. Help, what is the correct answer to this.
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 compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
I agree with you, I love my crystals too much to toss them out. This is my opinion, when a crystal feels heavy and dark, it can be buried in the earth for a rest and rejuvenation. This will restore the crystal to its energy levels. Put it in a sealed jar as this will protect it from further surface damage. As for its appearance, all crystals change, they continue to evolve as they are used. This does not retract from its ability to work. It is only adjusting to you and your energy, tuning in to you. This crystal will not work for anyone else, as long as you keep it, and you should never let anyone else handle it. If it is a tumbled stone it can be tumbled with polishing grit to renew its shine, if it is a natural stone you can take it to a jeweler to have polished and buffed. The jeweler will charge a small fee but its well worth it. They can also remove any chips on the tips. Keep your crystal, it is your choice and you should follow your intuition in this.
