We are going to be looking closely at rose quartz to check out what cleansing methods you can use on this beloved healing stone. So, let’s take a look!

What Is Rose Quartz?

Rose quartz is a pink version of the popular healing stone quartz, and it’s extremely popular due to its pale pink coloring, translucent body and glass-like luster. However, rose quartz also has a range of healing powers.

Its close connection to the heart and throat chakra make it a great stone to use to boost communication and make it easier to convey true feelings and emotions (see also ‘How to Activate Chakra Stones‘).

This makes it a crystal that is associated with themes of love and compassion, allowing its users to invite more care and tenderness into their life. As a result, rose quartz is an extremely popular healing crystal.

This means that a lot of people are looking for ways to safely cleanse and recharge their rose quartz – but some people end up making catastrophic mistakes which can totally ruin their rose quartz. So – how do you cleanse rose quartz, and can you do it using water?

Can Rose Quartz Go In Water?

Despite its fragile and gentle appearance, rose quartz is actually a very durable stone. It ranks at a seven on Mohs scale of hardness, making it pretty tough but not impossible to break.

This also makes rose quartz an excellent stone to wear on jewelry – so surely rose quartz is safe to leave soak in water?

Rose quartz will survive a quick dip in water and its durability makes it safe from being eroded due to running water but, like with most stones, it’s best not to leave the rose quartz soak for hours at a time.

This is because healing stones like rose quartz will need frequent cleansing and constantly soaking your rose quartz for long periods of time.

Over time, long exposure to water (be it salt or freshwater) will eventually lead to fissures and cracks in the surface of your rose quartz.

This can have a serious impact on the quality of your rose quartz’s healing properties so it’s super important to ensure that you avoid leaving rose quartz to soak in water to cleanse it.

However, it’s perfectly fine to run your pieces of rose quartz under a faucet or dip into a running stream of water for no more than a few seconds. This is because such a short exposure to water is not enough to cause any real lasting damage to your rose quartz.

Overall, rose quartz can go in water but it should not be left to soak for long periods of time. A quick rinse is more than enough to cleanse rose quartz of any negative energies – plus it’s better for the overall health of your rose quartz!

As we mentioned above, you can use running or still water to cleanse your rose quartz but it’s best to wash them very quickly.

A quick dip is enough to wash away any negative energies stored within your rose quartz so simply run your rose quartz pieces quickly underneath some water, then pat them dry.

However, you can use other methods to cleanse your rose quartz pieces. Smudging sage and waving your rose quartz through the smoke will also help allow any negative energy to leave your rose quartz.

This is the best alternative method used for cleansing rose quartz as its light and airy nature make it ill suited for cleansing via being submerged in rice or earth. So, using water to cleanse your rose quartz is actually one of the best and easiest methods to use.

Can You Use Water To Recharge Your Rose Quartz?

Once your healing stones are cleansed, it’s important to remember to recharge them. This will fill them with positive energy that will boost their magical properties – but a lot of people forget to carry out this step!

There are many ways you can recharge your healing stones, but some are much better suited for charging rose quartz.

Rose quartz is viewed as a very divine, magical healing stone and so it is also closely related to the moon. This is because of the close ties between the moon, femininity, and also rose quartz.

So, a popular way to recharge your rose quartz is to leave it bathed in moonlight. This will allow the rose quartz to fill up with feminine, divine energy to boost its properties.

Some people also like to dip their rose quartz in salt water due to its ties to love. The Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born from seafoam and so salt water does have a magical connection to rose quartz.

However, as we stated above, leaving your rose quartz in salt water for longer periods of time can cause damage in the long run, so simply pour a few spoonful of salt water of your rose quartz

This will help boost your rose quartz’s radiance and build its energy back up – just make sure not to leave the rose quartz to soak!

Final Thoughts

So, rose quartz is a pretty durable healing stone so it can survive a dip in some water but it’s important not to let it soak for long periods of time again and again.

This means that leaving rose quartz to soak in water for hours is not recommended as it can lead to fissures or cracks – but washing your rose quartz under water for a short amount of time is a great way to cleanse your rose quartz!
