It can be beneficial to cleanse your crystals & stones when you first receive them, in order to clear any negative energies it may have received on it’s journey to you.
You can cleanse your amethyst crystal of negative energy by sage smudging or leaving in a safe area outside in order for the sunshine to cleanse & recharge it during the day or the moonlight to charge & cleanse it of built up negative energies during the night. Or you can leave it out for a full day and night in order to receive the loving healing from both the sun & moon. You can also gently immerse your amethyst crystal in a solution of Himalayan salt and water solution, moving it around to clean it and visualize it clearing away any negative built up energy and recharge it with positive Life Force.
