Keeping your Orca Agate clear helps it stay deeply connected with your truths, protecting and guiding you through your journey. A fresh start is essential to setting clear intentions and receiving the deepest most effective support from your Orca Agate.

Rinsing under pure water is the simplest and easiest way to cleanse your water loving Orca Agate. While Orca Agate is safe to cleanse with water, some other crystals do not enjoy it and may end up damaged. Best to do some quick research before using this technique on all of your stones. If possible, bring your Orca Agate to a natural water source, especially the ocean or a stream to honor and cleanse it of all accumulated energies. Just like us, a soak in nature’s waters can renew and reset the vibe!
The ritual of burning sacred plants, woods and resins connects our modern souls to that of our ancestors. If you love the earthy smells of sages, palo santo, copal and others, pass your smudge over your crystal, asking that all negative and unwanted energies be released. This is a wonderful practice to use before journaling and mediating, it not only cleanses your Orca Agate, but it clears your space, ensuring that the universe and all that surrounds you is working in favor of your highest good.
The vibration of voice, singing bowls, crystal bowls, chimes and tuners is a peaceful sound technique to cleanse your Orca Agate.

Storing your Agate and other stones with these crystals cleanses and purifies without little effort. Building a crystal grid with your Orca Agate in the center, surrounded by quartz points and selenite is a beautiful way to honor and cleanse your crystal. As you build your grid, set the intention of clearing your Agate so that it may be cleansed, purified and renewed.
The exceptional mineral content in salt makes it one of nature’s most cleansing resources, especially with Orca Agate. You can use salt in two ways when it comes to cleansing your Orca Agate. You can bury your stone in a bowl of salt, allowing it to rest and cleanse overnight, or you can mix one tablespoon of salt with one cup of water, and place your Orca Agate in the salt water overnight. While water is not safe for all crystals, we highly suggest doing your research before using the salt water method on your crystal family.
