How long do crystals need to charge?

Hi everyone, I'm new to the world of crystals and gemstones and I have a question regarding their charging. I recently purchased a few crystals online and I'm not sure how long they need to be charged before I can start using them. I've read conflicting information online and I don't want to damage my crystals or hinder their effectiveness by not charging them properly. Can someone please give me some insights into how long different types of crystals need to be charged and how often I need to charge them? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi there, I've been using crystals for a few years now, and I've found that the duration of charging depends on the type of crystal and how often it is used. For example, I charge my black tourmaline and obsidian crystals almost every day because I use them for protection against negative energy, while my rose quartz and amethyst crystals are charged once a month because I use them for self-love and relaxation.

When charging my crystals, I like to cleanse them first using either sage, palo santo, or sound healing to remove any unwanted energy. Afterward, I place them in a place where they can receive natural light or moonlight, or even on a selenite plate. The duration of charging can vary from a couple of hours to 24 hours, depending on how powerful the crystal is and how much energy it has absorbed.

Finally, I believe that the right way to charge a crystal depends on an individual's intuition and the crystal's purpose. My advice is to listen to your intuition and observe the crystal's energy to determine the perfect charging time, and if you're unsure, consult available resources or seek guidance from experienced crystal users.


Hi there, I've been using crystals for a while now and I've found that the length of time that they need to be charged can vary depending on the crystal and its intended purpose. Generally, I like to charge my crystals for at least 12-24 hours, either by leaving them out in natural sunlight or moonlight or by burying them in the earth. However, some crystals may require longer charging times or may need to be charged more frequently than others. For example, I find that my clear quartz crystal needs to be charged more often and for longer periods of time than my amethyst. It's also important to note that some crystals may not need to be charged at all.

Ultimately, I think it's important to trust your intuition and experiment with different charging methods to see what works best for you and your crystals. Don't be afraid to ask for advice or guidance from experienced crystal users or consult reliable sources such as crystal books or online resources. Hope this helps!


Hey, I have been using crystals for meditation and healing for quite some time now, and from my experience, the duration of charging varies depending on the size and type of the crystal. Usually, smaller crystals take a shorter time to charge, whereas larger ones require prolonged exposure to external factors such as sunlight or moonlight. For instance, I charge my small rose quartz for about half an hour, while my large clear quartz is left to charge overnight.

Additionally, I do my charging outdoors, so I place my crystals on top of a clean white cloth to make sure nothing interferes with the charging process. Also, I strongly believe that one should be able to listen to their intuition when it comes to charging and working with crystals. With time, you'll find that you can distinguish the energy levels and vibrations your crystals emanate, which will guide you on when to charge them.

Finally, I'd like to emphasize the importance of cleaning your crystals before charging them. Cleansing removes any negative energy absorbed by the crystal, enabling it to absorb new energy more effectively.


Hello, I've recently started using crystals and I'm learning about their charging process. From what I've found, I agree that the duration of charging depends on the type of crystal and what it's used for. However, I also believe that the intention you set while charging a crystal is just as important as the duration. With that being said, I usually take around 15-20 minutes to charge my crystals.

To charge my crystals, I start by cleansing them using either sound, saltwater, or natural light. After that, I hold the crystal in my hand and focus on visualizing the purpose for which I want to use it. For example, if I'm charging my citrine crystal for manifestation or abundance, I'd focus on the energy of abundance and visualize myself already having what I want.

I feel that charging a crystal with intention is just as important as exposing it to natural cleansing elements, like sunlight or moonlight. I find that when I charge my crystals with intention, the energy they emit feels stronger and more aligned with my needs. However, I agree that it's important to listen to your intuition when charging crystals, and what works for one person may not work for another.
