By their very nature and molecular structure, crystals attract energy, which can be positive or negative. Even if your crystal has not collected anything negative on its way to you, it is a good idea to cleanse it before you start using it, so it's your own energy you are working with. It should also be cleansed regularly when in use to keep it clear and vibrant. Every few weeks is probably a good idea, but as you work with your crystals you will begin to sense when they feel dull and in need of cleansing.
Use your crystals with care and respect, but most of all joy!
