How to Cleanse a Garnet Stone

To physically clean a garnet stone, create a gentle cleaning solution by mixing lukewarm water with mild liquid soap or dish detergent. Soak the garnet in the solution for 10 to 15 minutes to loosen dirt and debris. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush or jewelry brush, gently scrub the stone, paying attention to hard-to-reach areas. Rinse the garnet thoroughly under lukewarm water, ensuring all soap residue is removed. Finally, dry the stone with a soft, lint-free cloth, avoiding rough materials that could scratch its surface.

Due to the diverse chemical composition of garnets, some varieties require special care during cleaning as they can be sensitive to heat.

How to Activate a Garnet Stone

Find a quiet and peaceful space where you can sit comfortably with your garnet stone. Hold the stone in your hand or place it on your body, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Allow the energy of the garnet to flow through you, helping you ground your energy, release negativity, and connect with your inner wisdom. Visualize the deep red or rich green color of the stone enveloping you with its protective and nurturing energy.
