What does it mean when your crystal breaks? 

Anonymous sent us this question on one of our social media accounts. Our reply? There are a variety of reasons why a crystal can break.

1. Your need for a specific energy in the crystal is too much and it overwhelms the crystal.

We had a client who was going through a divorce. She loved rose quartz, but she’d been so depleted as far as love traits (helping her children, caring for her concerned parents, etc) that every time she picked up a piece of rose quartz it would break because her need for loving energy overwhelmed the crystal.

Mangano Calcite

In this circumstance there were other love stones that could have been used in combination to help her energy, such as mangano calcite, which provides the necessary properties to help those who do for others.

Ask yourself, are you depending on a specific property of the crystal, and if so, is there another stone that has similar properties that may be more appropriate for your energy needs?

2.  How clean have you kept the crystal?

When a crystal hasn’t been cleared, the build up of the energy it has taken on can overwhelm the crystal, which causes it to break.

You should energetically cleanse your jewelry and gemstones on a regular basis. Place them on a piece of selenite, smudge them, run them through incense, place them in full moon light to energize them…all of these are especially important when you’re having a lot of stress and adjustment in your life.

Never wear a gemstone day in and day out, never removing it and cleansing it. The crystal absorbs your daily energy and the energy around you. When it doesn’t get cleansed, it becomes stressed, when it is stressed you lose the healing benefits, and over time, the crystal can break. We advise, when asked, that you cleanse your gemstones that have been used immediately after use (meditation, chakra work, etc) or when taken off at the end of your day.

3. It’s just how the crystal was formed.

Sometimes a crystal breaks on a natural area of formation. There is nothing you could have done to have prevented it.
