Personally, I suspect you just dropped a couple of the stones.   Smiley  Obsidian is usually pretty smooth and can be slippery, since it's a kind of glass.

One note of caution:  Salt, especially salt water, can badly damage some stones.  There are other cleansing methods that are better for the stones, but it's a good idea to become familiar with the physical characteristics of your specific stones.  Sunlight can cause some to fade or lose their color completely, and even plain water can dissolve some stones.

A lot of people who work with the metaphysical properties of stones recommend cleansing them by putting them in contact with selenite, ideally laying them on a large piece of selenite and leaving them there for a day or two.  I have no opinion about the efficacy of that method, but at least it won't damage the stones.   Wink

Personally I use a large piece of clear quartz to cleanse my crystals. It works for me every time without fail! Or, if I am on the move, I draw the negative energies from the crystal, pull it through me and down into the earth. Not quite as effective as a full cleansing, but it still does remarkably well, especially for jewellery. If neither of these work for you, try passing them through the smoke of your favourite incense. That works too.

I avoid water or sunlight to cleanse stones, even though I know which of my crystals can be cleansed that way. I'd rather cleanse them all in the same way. Balances the energies better IMO.

Hope this helps.
