Storing and Cleaning Your Crystal Collection

Storing and cleaning your crystal collection is an important part of collecting these natural wonders. Keep your crystals away from direct sunlight, in a dry, dark place, such as a box or pocket.

Keep them away from extreme temperatures and moisture. This will help you to preserve the beauty and energy of your crystal collection.

Always clean your crystals with a soft cloth or lightly moisten them with clear water. Do not try to deep clean or clean your crystals with any abrasive or chemical cleaners as this will damage the natural gemstone. You could also use a sage/cedar smudging mixture to clear away negative energy.

Do not expose your crystals to other stones. The combined energies may cause your crystals to break down faster. You should also regularly check the cleansing properties of your collection by checking each crystal’s color and vibration.

Know Where to Find Quality Crystals

It is important to select reputable dealers and vendors whom you can trust to provide authentic specimens. Some of the most popular places where crystals can be found are stores specializing in mineralogy, rock shops, museums, or online from web-based gem and mineral dealers.

Depending on the type and quality of crystals you are seeking, the costs can vary significantly. Prices may be highest in rock shops and specialty stores, while online stores can offer added discounts.

It is important to take into consideration factors such as the size, color, origin, and grade of the specific specimen as well as the quality of the supplier. When collecting crystals, there is no substitute for shopping around to get the best quality for your money.
