There are several ways to cleanse a crystal.
Bury your meditation crystal in the ground: When left in the ground overnight crystals are cleansed of negative energy.
Use water: Hold your crystal in a natural source of running water (or a tap if no natural sources are available). Of course, before you do that you will want to make sure that your crystal isn’t soluble.
Use Cleansing Crystals: Crystals such as carnelian and quartz have cleansing properties. Put a cleansing crystal in a bag with other crystals to cleanse them.
Cleanse your crystal once when you first get it. That will purify it. And then cleanse the crystal again every so often to keep it clear of negative energy.
