    More Black Obsidian Bracelet Rules

    • Wear your bracelet at all times. This will strengthen your bond with the crystal. The deeper your relationship with black obsidian, the more powerful it gets.
    • Cleanse your beads at least once a month. You may also cleanse them when they are already feeling heavier or duller than usual.
    • Meditate with the bracelet regularly. Project your intentions on the bracelet to align your energy with the crystal.
    • Follow the Pixiu bracelet rules. If your black obsidian comes with a Pixiu amulet, ensure that its head is facing the direction of your little finger. Pixiu is known as the “fortune beast” in Chinese culture, a symbol of wealth.
    • Don’t wear black obsidian with other crystals. The stone’s energy may be too intense for you. If you’re wearing other crystals, go for ones with gentle or nurturing energies.
    • Pack your crystal bracelet in red cloth when it breaks. Then, bury it to the ground to return the black obsidian to nature. When your bracelet breaks, this means it has already served its purpose.
    • Ensure you're wearing real stones. A real black obsidian bracelet holds energy that attracts wealth and inspire protection. If you're wearing a fake bracelet made of glass, it won't have the same effects.

      Hi there! I have a question, you say that:

      “Don’t wear black obsidian with other crystals. The stone’s energy may be too […] "

      So, does that mean not to wear it along with other crystal in the same bracelet? I ask you this becaus I have a red jasper necklace, a bracelet with a mixture of citrine, red garnet, carnelian and red jasper, and I was planning to get a black obsidian ring…so, should I wear that black obsidian ring if I have all of those gemstones on my body? or should I only wear black obsidian ring without the other stones?

      Thank you!
