The Earth's gems play a surprisingly central role in how color functions, not only in the mineral kingdom but also in life itself. This role has far-reaching implications for the healing arts, therapy, and energy medicine. 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. This is the force that enlivens, sustains, and nourishes everything that lives. The human beings are manifestations of this vital force. Thus, at the deepest level human beings 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 to correct such color-ray imbalances and begin to help the human being to heal and grow in the deepest way possible.
All therapeutic gems embody intense concentrations of energy in it. They help remove obstructions to the flow of life force in the bodies and being. Seven of these gemstones also serve some 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. These color rays are not physically tangible, and that is why 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. Indeed, these seven gemstones are the Earth's premier color healing tools.
The seven color ray gemstones and the color rays they carry can be mentioned as Ruby i.e. red ray, Carnelian i.e. orange ray, Citrine i.e. yellow ray, Emerald i.e. green ray, Blue Sapphire i.e. blue ray, Indigo i.e. indigo ray, and Amethyst i.e. purple or violet ray.
Each of these gemstones contains the concentrated energy of a certain color ray. Each of them also acts as a magnet to continuously draw a current of that color to the physical plane from its unlimited source. When someone wears a necklace of a color ray gemstone, that person effectively step into the current of color that the gemstone draws to itself. As this current move through the subtle bodies to the physical body, any blockages in the being associated with that color ray are washed away in the current. For example, when anyone wears a therapeutic Emerald necklace, the 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 the life and health at the deepest levels. Through this mechanism, wearing a color-ray gemstone necklace can have profound implications for one's life and health at the deepest levels.
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.
In the following paragraph there are lists the color rays, the color ray gemstones, and the physical systems that are nourished and supported by each color ray.
The colour of ruby is red and this helps in muscular system like muscles, tendons and fascia. Colour of carnelian is orange and this is used for lymphatic system, soft connective tissue, endocrine system or glands, and adipose tissue. Citrin is yellow coloured and this is helpful to organs of elimination like skin, bladder, urinary tract, kidneys, intestines, and eliminative aspects of the liver. Emerald is green coloured and this is helpful for organs in the torso, and brain. It should be noted specially that the brain, which serves many functions, is associated with several color rays as well. Blue sapphire is related to vascular system, nerve sheaths, cerebrospinal fluid, sense organs, blood, and brain. Indigo, which is indigo coloured is helpful to skeletal system such as bones, ligaments, joints, and cartilage. Amethyst is purple or violet coloured and this is beneficial to the nerve cells and brain.
Therapeutic gemstones are jewels of multidimensional healing and transformation. By shaping therapeutic gems into spheres and stringing them into necklaces, their vast healing potential can be tapped and their far-reaching therapeutic benefits can be reaped.
There are some other sources of color present in the environment. This is 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 color such 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 someone were to eat green vegetables constantly, he or she couldn't consume nearly as much green ray as anyone 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.
After everything it can be said that the most common cause of color in gemstones is the presence of a small amount of a transition metal ion. A ruby is a crystal of alumina, aluminum oxide, containing a trace of chromium ions replacing some of the aluminum ions. The ruby reflects or transmits the remainder of the light. Because this absorbed light is deficient in some energy, the light appears colored.
The origin of the color of emeralds is similar to that of the color of rubies. However, the bulk of an emerald crystal is composed of beryl, beryllium aluminum silicate, instead of the alumina, which forms rubies. Chromium also produces color in alexandrite. The color of this gem is very unusual because in bright sunlight it appears green, but in incandescent light it appears red. This unusual behavior is a result of the way human vision works. All human being's eyes are most sensitive to green light. Alexandrite reflects both green and red light. In bright sunlight, the proportion of green light is greater than it is in the light from an incandescent lamp. The light reflected by alexandrite in bright sunlight is rich in green light, to which the eyes are most sensitive, and the gem is perceived as green. The light reflected by alexandrite in incandescent light is much richer in red, and the stone is seen as red under these conditions.
