Stones are great to use in spellcrafting, because you can recycle them by cleansing and purifying them. Basically, this”washes” them clean of whatever energy with which you previously empowered the, as well as whatever energy they picked up during their work. Note that this does not remove their base energy. No matter what you do, you can never remove the basic energy encoded into the stones (or herb, or any component, for that matter). Once the stone has been cleansed, it’s ready to go again; a blank slate for you to program or charge for a new purpose. There are several ways to cleanse a stone.
