But just remember, working with crystals is extremely subjective and personal and you have to find the right way to cleanse and connect with them for you.
What works for one person may not work for another. And the way you connect with your crystals may require more or less cleansing and clearing of energies within your crystals.

Can Charging and Cleaning the Crystals Damage Them?
In general, no. Charging and cleansing your crystals shouldn’t damage them if you do it correctly and with the right understanding, knowledge, and techniques.
Some techniques are safer than others i.e., leaving your crystals in the moonlight or burying them in the earth.
Others can be quite harmful and cause the crystal to lose their color, crack, dissolve, rust and even become dangerous.
Do Crystals All Need the Same Kind of Care?
Each crystal is unique in its own way and therefore they require different kinds of care.
Therefore, no crystals do not require the same kind of care.
Before we start, take a look at this list of crystals that can’t be cleansed in the water.
So, there are a few things you need to keep in mind when wondering about how you should care for yours:

How You Use Them
Remember to do your research thoroughly in order to understand the kind of crystal you have and how you should potentially care for it.
Remember, if a crystal is not in tune with its natural healing energy, vibrations and frequencies then its ability to effectively radiate positive energy and heal will be greatly diminished and interrupted.
Overcharging and overcleansing a crystal can be just as harmful as not taking the time to clear out its energy.
Crystal work is extremely intricate and personal. Everything must be considered from the type of moon phase, the energy behind your intention, to the nature and history of the earth and soil you bury them within.
Do your research and then trust in your own intuition and connection to your crystals.
It may sound complicated now but it will get easier if you open yourself up to learning and understanding your crystals. Patience is key and so is communication.
