Care for your smoky quartz stone ring
This ring is made from 925 sterling silver and includes two faceted smoky quartz gemstones.
Smoky quartz is a delicate stone, and can be easily harmed from harsh environments or chemicals.
It is best to remove before even using soap to wash your hands or before submerging them in soapy water.
It also absorbs negative energies quite fast and so it needs frequent cleansing.
You can clear the energies absorbed by the smoky quartz by running it under clear water.
You can also put it on your windowsill during a full moon (three days on other side) to clear the energies.
