Crystals and gemstones can be fragile, so it is essential they should be handled with love and care. Some gemstones can fade after prolonged exposure to sunlight, so be mindful if you do have crystals on the windowsill to make sure they are out of direct sunligh… unless you are using sunlight intentionally to cleanse them. If they are not on display taking pride of place around your home or workspace when you’re not using your crystals it’s best keep them inside in a velvet pouch, purse or other soft material to keep them safe.
