In my shamanic lineage, Sacred Stones (including all Crystals and Minerals) are one of the seven sacred spirits of Pachamama (Mother Earth/Time/Cosmos). As such, I cleanse and bless each stone, crystal and mineral in sacred ceremony. To cleanse the stones I smudge them with palo santo, and kamai them with rumi yako (stone water). Afterward, I imbue the stones with the energy of the Three Sacred Mountains and the Spirit of Fire.
