Major Chakra Colors

A concept not often talked about in traditional medicine but one that’s stressed in many alternative therapies is the idea of the body’s chakras. These are points of energy on the body that each associates with particular thoughts, emotions and physiological processes.

There are seven major chakras as well as over a hundred minor ones. The seven major chakra colors each pertain to specific ideas and body processes, so that if a chakra is believed to be blocked or unbalanced, the use of certain colors can help.

This chakra balancing is usually done with gemstones of the right color and vibration. In a nutshell, the major chakra colors are:

  • Violet (and sometimes gold-white) for the crown chakra that’s located at the top of the head.
  • Indigo for the third eye chakra that’s located in the center of the forehead.
  • Blue for the throat chakra that’s at the base of the throat.
  • Green (and sometimes pink) for the heart chakra in the center of the chest.
  • Yellow for the solar plexus chakra that’s right below the breastbone.
  • Orange for the sacral chakra that’s in the center of the abdomen.
  • Red (and sometimes black) for the base or root chakra at the base of the spine.

Knowing these colors can help promote healing and well-being for those who want to try alternative therapies. For instance, someone who has laryngitis, dental problems or any type of neck or throat problem (as well as emotional or mental issues with speaking the truth, speaking freely, expressing oneself through words) might benefit from blue turquoise or angelite in a pendant, as these stones are blue and can be used to help bring the throat chakra (which associates with blue) into balance.

Different colored gemstones are also used in gem healing where stones are placed on the corresponding parts of the body, and in Assemblage Point Healing, which has many concepts in common with the idea of chakras and chi.
