Color Ray Healing With Seven Special Gemstones

color healing therapy spectrum

The Earth's gems play a surprisingly central role in how color functions, not only in the mineral kingdom but in life itself. This role has far-reaching implications for the healing arts, therapy, and energy medicine. Indeed, the subject of color healing is such a significant part of gemstone energy medicine that it deserves several books of its own. Thus, what follows is simply a brief introduction to this vast topic.

Color rays are the most fundamental building blocks of all living things. Just as visible light is comprised of the seven colors of the rainbow, so is the life force - the force that enlivens, sustains, and nourishes everything that lives. We human beings are manifestations of this vital force. Thus, at the deepest level we too are made up of spectrums of these seven color rays.

Each color ray has a specific purpose, and all seven color rays are essential for life. Being continually supplied with and nourished by a proper balance of color rays is essential to every aspect of health. In an optimally healthy person, all seven colors are present in balance. Any deviation from that balance moves a person away from ideal health and an optimal expression of life - and will ultimately lead to disease and disharmony.

Certain special gemstones can help us correct such color-ray imbalances and begin to help us heal and grow in the deepest way possible.

Seven Color Ray Gemstones
All therapeutic gems embody intense concentrations of energy. They help remove obstructions to the flow of life force in our bodies and being. Seven of these gemstones also serve another, very special function: each of them carries one of the seven color rays of the life force. Embodied in the crystalline matrix of each of these seven gems is the pure and highly concentrated vibration of a certain color ray.

Because the color rays themselves are not physically tangible, it is difficult to work with them directly in their pure form. The gemstones that carry the seven color rays solve this problem. They are the Earth's most powerful tools available for drawing the color rays from their origins through one's inner dimensions, or subtle bodies, to the physical body. Indeed, these seven gemstones are the Earth's premier color healing tools.

The seven color ray gemstones and the color rays they carry are: Ruby (red ray), Carnelian (orange ray), Citrine (yellow ray), Emerald (green ray), Blue Sapphire (blue ray), Indigo (indigo ray), and Amethyst (purple/violet ray).

Each of these gemstones not only contains the concentrated energy of a certain color ray; each also acts as a magnet to continuously draw a current of that color to the physical plane from its unlimited source, the pure life force that lies at the basis of all life. When you wear a necklace of a color ray gemstone, you effectively step into the current of color that the gemstone draws to itself.

As this current moves through your subtle bodies to your physical body, any blockages in your being associated with that color ray are washed away in the current. For example, when you wear a therapeutic Emerald necklace, your entire being is flooded with the green color ray. The green ray helps neutralize the disharmonies that cause physical disease, particularly those centered in the organs. As blockages to the green ray dissolve, any excess of green ray in the body and aura is relieved, and any deficiency of green is filled by the abundant influx of green ray.

Through this mechanism, wearing a color-ray gemstone necklace can have profound implications for one's life and health at the deepest levels.

Healing the Physical Body with Color
Each of the seven color rays is particularly healing and nourishing to a certain system in the physical body. For this reason, one can greatly benefit a particular system by wearing its corresponding color ray necklace. For example, the red ray nourishes and supports the muscles, tendons, and fascia. Consequently, wearing Ruby can help strengthen these parts and resolve certain conditions related to them.

The following chart lists the color rays, the color ray gemstones, and the physical systems that are nourished and supported by each color ray.

Color Rays and Physical Systems

Color Ray Gemstone Physical Systems
Red Ruby Muscular system (muscles, tendons, and fascia)
Orange Carnelian Lymphatic system
Soft connective tissue
Endocrine system (glands)
Adipose tissue

Yellow Sapphire


Organs of elimination (skin, bladder, urinary tract, kidneys, intestines, and eliminative aspects of the liver)
Green Emerald Organs in the torso
Blue Blue Sapphire Vascular system
Nerve sheaths
Cerebrospinal fluid
Sense organs
Indigo Indigo Skeletal system (bones, ligaments, joints, and cartilage)
Purple/Violet Amethyst Nerve cells

*Note that the brain, which serves many functions, is associated with several color rays.

Therapeutic gemstones are jewels of multidimensional healing and transformation - gifts from the Earth waiting to be opened. To enjoy these gifts, we need only know how to unwrap and use them; yet, doing so can be a very simple matter. By shaping therapeutic gems into spheres and stringing them into necklaces, we can tap their vast healing potential and reap their far-reaching therapeutic benefits.

Other Sources of Color
Because the flow of color rays through a gemstone is vital and continuous, the Gemstone Guardians explain, wearing a color ray gemstone is much more effective than using any other form of colorsuch as wearing clothes, eating foods, or using light of a certain color. The gemstones that carry the color rays are uniquely powerful sources of color ray nourishment. The way Ruby expresses the red ray, for example, is profoundly different from any another source of red ray, red color, or red light. While it is true that food possesses life energy, once food is digested, its color quickly changes. For instance, even if you were to eat green vegetables constantly, you couldn't consume nearly as much green ray as you could simply by wearing an Emerald necklace. Moreover, the benefits of a green vegetable are limited to the physical body, while Emerald's green ray energy provides nourishment to every level of one's multidimensional being.
