AB­SO­LUTELY. Se­len­ite dis­solves in wa­ter, as does halite – al­though with halite it is part of the process if you want to use it to cleanse you. Hang a piece in a lit­tle muslin bag from your shower head where the wa­ter will dis­solve it and heal you.

Crys­tals that are crumbly such as kyan­ite don’t take well to be­ing in wa­ter. Avoid putting clus­ters or lay­ered stones like lep­i­do­lite or mus­covite in liq­uid, as this will sep­a­rate the lay­ers, and mo­qui mar­bles will rust. Use un­cooked brown rice, smudge with sage, or sound Ting­sha bells, Ti­betan bowls or tun­ing forks as an al­ter­na­tive means of cleans­ing crys­tals.
