Hello There. I have a couple questions, and would be so grateful for a response. My question has to do with giving and receiving crystals/stones. Is it not good to give stones to others as gifts? I have heard that it may just be if they were yours and you are giving them to someone else. When you receive crystal/stones should you always cleanse them? Even if you bought them. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and thank you for getting back to me.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your question.
There is no reason to stay away from gifting crystals to others. Many times I have bought just the right ones for my friends, even without knowing the issue they were having in their lives at the moment, and for which that particular crystal that I got them was just perfect! We get lots of questions from many of our fans as to what to get to their friends who are dealing with various issues, or what to get someone for a wedding, or after a surgery . . .
What I get from how you phrased your question is that you may be asking if you should give crystals that you have owned for a while to someone else. Or perhaps this is what those who told you not to gift crystals have meant. Whatever the case may be -- that is a different issue. When we work with crystals (carry them, wear as jewelry, meditate with them, use them in healing sessions) our energy is interacting with the energy of crystals. It is best to get someone a crystal that no one has "worked with" in this way. However, even this is not set in stone, especially if the crystals have been properly cleansed.
Cleaning crystals is very important, especially when you first get them, regardless of whether they come from a mortar-and-brick store, an online shop or from a friend or family. It is also important to cleanse them often even if only you work with them -- every day if you wear them every day -- so that they can continue to be at their best, in terms of their energy and frequency.
You can cleanse them using one of the methods outlined here .
I hope that these recommendations can be of assistance and that crystals grace your journey with love and light. We look forward to hearing from you and please feel free to contact us with any questions.
