colour WheelColourful Crystals.

The abundance of colour in our lives plays a very significant role it nourishes us on every level and makes us feel great and the illumination of colour is essential to support our chakras. Colour is therapy energy vibrations on the spectrum that affect us in different ways not only does it stimulate us with vibrancy and beauty it helps with our healing too. Colourful crystals provide their unique vibration of healing energy and when combined with Reiki that can be infused into the crystals creates a powerful healing aid to assist your healing.

The healing effects of crystals and their colours will benefit and rebalance the bodies energy centres, known as the chakras. The colour of a gemstone plays a genuinely remarkable part in how it will be used for healing.

Colourful crystals are way more than just something that’s pretty! We may find that we’re drawn to a specific crystal or colour that makes us feel better, uplifted and joyful. This makes complete sense when you recognise that each of our chakras relates to a specific colour.

All gemstones are precious and beautiful in the sense that if they provide meaning and value to you in a piece of jewellery, they are very special, also have in mind that the colours of the gemstones are subjective and a piece of jewellery is emotional.

The colour of any crystal is the most important and easiest way of identifying the right crystal for you and your needs for personal empowerment or protection purposes. Colours in red, its effect will be dynamic, fast and go straight to the root of the problem. Colours in Green represents love, gradual growth and nature, linked to a slow but continuous increase in any area of your life. Go with the feeling within to choose the crystal for you.

However, one thing I’ve discovered when combining crystals and their colour is that it’s still important to consider the properties of the crystal in addition to its colour. For example, green Aventurine and Malachite are both green, but their underlying energies are considerably distinctive, so they are not necessarily interchangeable just because they are green. The underlying energies and advantages of a specific gem play a role even when you’re primarily focusing on the colour.

You may get a gut feeling of knowing which ones you desire. Choose yours, find the one that will make you shine. Amazingly, there are so many different colour varieties of Gems. Listed below are some of the crystals and Varieties for you to choose from. Click on your desired Colour and it will take you to the shop for the one that you want.
