How to cleanse Chrysocolla? 4 safe ways

  1. Sage

Sage is such an efficient and refreshing way to purify your crystal as well as your aura from the negative energy that causes you disturbance and uneasiness.


The fume generated by sage wraps the chrysocolla crystal with a highly purifying cloud that works on absorbing all the unharmonious vibrations that were stored by the stone, which simultaneously revives its empowering transmitted vibrations and activates its calming powers.

Before igniting the sage stick make sure to open up your windows to let go of the smoke generated by the sage.

Then, illuminate the sage and let its smoke surrounds the stone for a few minutes.

  1. Moonlight

The moonlight is such a rejuvenating and delicate cleansing stream of energy that will clarify the Chrysocolla stone from all the absorbed negative, discordant, and undesired vibrations.


Moonlight will delicately and properly diffuse all the negative energy that was stored by this stone and at the same time, it will reequilibrate and reload its overall healing energies.

So, to cleanse Chrysocolla using the Moon energy, place your crystal before nightfall on your windowsill and let it soak the natural light of the moon for the entire night.

Just make sure to place it in a secure place where it can not fall off because we should keep in mind that Chrysocolla is considered a breakable crystal that can be damaged quite easily.

  1. Brown rice

This is a very straightforward yet effective cleansing method.

Brown rice

You are going to need a small amount of rice (depending on the size of the stone) and a container.

First, fill a bowl with brown rice and try to bury your Chrysocolla crystal beneath the rice grains.

Make sure that the crystal is entirely submerged in the rice.

Next, put the bowl aside for 12 hours or for the whole day.

The rice grains will work on pulling altogether any past discordant and negative energies that were attached to the Chrysocolla.

Quick reminder:

After finishing the cleaning session, it is best to let go of the used rice because we don’t want to recycle the energy received by this medium and used it for other purposes.

  1. Crystals geode

Larger crystals such as Amethyst, Quartz, Calcite geodes as well as Selenite wands radiate potent healing and purifying energies that can clarify smaller crystals from all the accumulated unfavorable and discordant vibrations.

Crystals geode

The top cleansing method to avoid


One of the most important pieces of information that you should absolutely be aware of is that the Chrysocolla stone scores between 2 and 4 on the Mohs scale of hardness.
