Crystals are extremely precious, so it’s important to always try to look after yours, but sometimes unusual things can happen to stones, such as unexpected cracks and breaks, or perhaps your crystal is no longer working in ways it used to.
Find out what this can mean, and how to prevent anything unusual happening to your healing crystals.
Cracks and breaks in your crystal
A crack or break in your healing crystal isn’t always something to be worried or concerned about. Many stones can be quite fragile, heavy impact such as dropping your crystal can cause it to break or crack, so always be careful when handling any crystals.
Crystals can also be sensitive to changes in temperature, such as going from one extreme to another. This is called thermal shock, so you should try and avoid any situations where this could happen.
However, sometimes a crystal can crack or break with no explanation as to why! If your crystal has been damaged unexpectedly, this could be due to the intense energy during use that can alter the crystals vibrational frequency and cause cracks and breaks.
A broken crystal isn’t usually anything to worry about. The crystal isn’t ruined, and you should still be able to continue to use it as normal. Try holding your crystal in your hand to see if the vibrations and energy feel any different. If the crystal doesn’t feel ‘right’, then try burying it in your garden overnight. The earth is excellent for restoring the energy of your healing crystal.
Crystal has lost its power
If your healing crystal doesn’t work as well as it used to then it may need cleansing. Clearing and cleansing your crystal regularly is important, especially if it has been handled by people other than yourself.
As gemstones are highly sensitive, they can receive and transmit energy incredibly easily. This means it is crucial for you to cleanse and clear your crystals regularly in order to realign energies and remove any unwanted vibrations.
You can cleanse your crystals using several methods, a couple of the most popular techniques include leaving your crystal in sunlight or moonlight for at least 12 hours, the crystal will absorb the healing light rays and will help to be restored.
Has your crystal gone AWOL? Sometimes crystals can completely disappear and this can be totally unexplained. The crystal may reappear at a later date, or it may never be seen again! Either way, a disappearing crystal can be a good thing. The crystal’s work with you has been done, it has helped you when you’ve really needed it, and it could now be with somebody else who needs it more than you do.
