Some of you who’ve been following along have noticed that we’ve done many therapy and healing layouts along with cleansing and recharging your crystals. One may wonder about the colors of our stones. Does color have a purpose?
According to Rodenbeck, “Yes the color of the stone does serve a purpose. Understanding the influence of the colors will enhance the healing powers enormously. Knowing the purpose each color is also a great cheat sheet if you don’t have specific directions.”

Yellow– Mentally stimulating, personal power, validation, self-worth, counters depression, helps digestion, and communication.
Green– Transformation, healing, harmony, emotional and physical detox, emotional connections, destresses.
Blue– Relaxation, tranquility, balances chemicals in the body, and stimulates the kidneys and bladder.
Purple– Peace, clairvoyance, intuition, spiritual matters, healing, brain activity, cleanses lungs and skin.
Black/Brown– Absorbs negative energy, eliminates pain, and is a connection to Earth’s energy.
With each colored stone, you can do a simple meditation to get to know the stones. Hold the stone in your hand and focus on its attributes and abilities. Focus on one attribute at a time if need be. Close your eyes and breathe slowly and clearly. Learn how the stone feels and how it affects you. How does it make you feel? Repeat this exercise with different crystals to improve your relationship and knowledge of crystals. This helps you learn their healing powers.
