You're right on the mark: cleansing.

There are many ways. Some run under cool water. Some give it a salt bath, but that can wreck your nice little stone people.

What I do is I "blow in" white fire to burn and blow out all negative energies, and then hold it in my hands to sort of charge it. However, it is always best to ask the stone what they would prefer.

I can't keep track of who can meditate and who finds difficulty, so I'm going to assume you're okay with meditation. If not, try just asking and listening to your inner voice. But get into a meditative state and see the stone in front of you, or a being representing the stone (maybe the amethyst will be represented by a lady?) Start asking all your questions like "Is it okay to cleanse, what is your preferred method, can I charge you; how?" etc etc etc

A Buddhist technique is to feel your breath.

sit in a comfortable position and simply pay attention to the cooling and warming sensations of your breath on your nose.

Most people who start out can only do this for about thirty seconds before their thoughts go somewhere else. And if you start timing how long you go, you will lose the benefits of meditating.

Don't push too hard, just let it happen.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

A nice natural way of cleansing stones (especially clear, coloured stones) for me is to put out a shallow bowl or what you would use for your chalice. Bless the water, and ask for cleansing (salt can be added if you wish, but as I think it was CHL said, it could ruin your stone), and then leave it out overnight during a full moon. In the morning dump out the water or you can use for other ritual things. I find that when the moon cleanses herself and things dedicated to her, no negativity is left in the water... or perhaps it's that leaving it in the grass as I do, grounds it as well as charging and cleansing.
