My favorite method of cleansing crystals is with a tuning fork. It is something that is simple, can be done any where, by any one, and at any time.
Cleansing the energies of a crystal with a tuning fork works with the sound waves and vibrations of the tuning fork. To make it easier for you to find the information that you are looking for, I have set up the rest of the article in a Q&A style.
How to use the tuning fork: Gently tap the end of the tuning fork on your hand or with a rubber mallet. Hold the vibrating tuning fork over the crystal for as long as you feel necessary. Use your intuition on how long it need it. You can hold the crystal in your hand or have it on the table in front of you.
What tuning fork do you use?: I use the weighted OM 136.1 hz frequency tuning fork by Omnivos. It is the frequency of the Earth. Of all of them that I have tried has one is my favorite. (View on Amazon.)
Does the frequency of the tuning fork matter?: No it does not.
What is the difference between weighted and unweighted tuning forks?: Unweighted tuning forks produce a louder sound that can easily be heard, but the vibrational waves are not as strong. Unweighted are typically used around the body and by the ears.
Weighted tuning forks are quiet. They do not produce the same sounds as the he unweighted, but their vibrational waves are much stronger. Weighted tuning forks hold their vibration for longer periods of time as well. Weighted tuning forks are typically used on the body and by the ears. (Learn more on sacredwaves.com)
Does it matter if the tuning fork is weighted or unweighted?: No it does not. Go with whichever you prefer. Weighted is quiet and the vibration lasts longer, which many may prefer over the louder sounds of the unweighted.
How can you tell if the tuning fork is weighted?: In my video below you will see what the weighted tuning forks look like. They have what looks like a thick disk towards the tips of the tuning fork. Unweighted tuning forks simply look like two points. (Photo coming soon.)
The following is a quick video about tuning forks that I posted on my TikTok page on 2/14/21.
