I am new to crystals and have enjoyed reading this site. I recently purchased an Amethyst and put it outside to cleanse in the moonlight before using it.
When I brought it back inside I noticed many scratches on it's surface and there are bits of sand inside some of the cracks.
I live near the ocean which could explain that - especially if it was windy out. I feel absolutely terrible about the damage.
I haven't been able to find anything online as to what to do when a crystal has been damaged like this. Is it still usable? Please help! Thank you so much. xo
