A general guide to colors of semiprecious gemstones
I have discussed the hardness, density and natural variations of semiprecious gemstones. “Color” is also a consideration in selecting semiprecious gemstones. Some gemstones that are a particular color are believed by some to carry special significance, whether because it’s a personal favorite color, or it reminds one of a period of time, a particular function, or some other important event one wants to remember. This is a general guide to colors of semiprecious gemstones and their general functions.
Browns, blacks, and red color gemstones general function is grounding, power and focus.
Orange color gemstones general function is to birth those great ideas into reality.
Yellow color gemstones general function is to assist you in shining your magnificence and fabulosity.
Green and pink gemstones general function is to be compassionate and kind.
Blue gemstones general function is to express your authentic self with wisdom and grace.
Purple gemstones general function is to bring forth inspired living.

In some healing circles and traditions, color, as light and pigment, is intrinsic to healing: red increases circulation, orange increases energy, yellow stimulates the nerves, and green and blue soothes everything from skin irritations to anxiety.
The decision to use semiprecious gemstones to improve your health is a personal one, but I strongly suggest that you get a consultation with a qualified healthcare or spiritual provider who is well educated, certified and experienced using semiprecious gemstones for health and healing purposes. Generally, though, the selection of a particular gemstone or gemstones based on color is a personal decision.
