General Guidelines for How To Care for Your Items
Always be mindful of how you care for your crystals. Some crystals are not suitable for water, and others can fade or otherwise be affected by sunlight.
I would generally advice against putting your crystals in water, just to be on the safe side. While some can handle it just fine, others can erode or even cause a chemical reaction. A rule of thumb is that most crystals ending in -ite cannot go in water, but always make sure to research the properties of each crystal to be sure.
Instead of cleaning your stone with water, consider wiping it off if you want to physically clean it. Otherwise you might want to opt for an energetic cleansing instead.
Before cleansing your stone (unless it is infused), make sure you check the appropriate way to cleanse it. It can vary from leaving it out during full moon, putting it in a pile of salt, or even smoke cleansing it. You can also choose to sleep with a crystal under your pillow at night to imprint it with your energy (though be mindful not to do this with brittle ones).
Some crystals can fade in the sunlight, such as fluorites. Be mindful not to leave them out on a windowsill and if you intend to sunbathe or be outside in the bright sun, consider putting your pendant underneath your shirt (if wearing one) or putting it near you in a bag to protect it from the direct sun.
All wood-pieces sold in the store are untreated, natural wood. This is a choice I've made to not only honour the tree of which the wood came from, but to be as environmentally friendly as possible (a lot of wood-treatments aren't exactly the most eco-friendly stuff). This means that every wooden item is susceptible to anything a natural wooden branch would be susceptible to. As such, I recommend that you treat them with the same care as you would a crystal; avoid moisture, direct water, and harsh climates. If you want to make your item a bit more durable, you absolutely can choose to treat the wood yourself once receiving the item, though!
