We are surrounded
by color all the time. Colors emit energy that affects us emotionally
as well as serving as decoration. Although we feel more comfortable with
or are attracted to specific colors, all color is good.
It is fairly easy
to use colors for healing. In general, gemstones in the same color range
have some of the same basic healing properties. For example, red helps
to ground physically and mentally, promoting courage and energy. The business
women's red power suit is an example of the use of red. A necklace of
Garnets would have the same effect.
Since many gemstones
come in several color variations, they may be listed more than once under
different colors. Please be aware that not all of the gemstones are available
to make jewelry from at this time, nor is this list all inclusive.
