Crystal Connections

If you remember from the conversation about the science of crystals, the inherent vibrational qualities of each crystal is a result of its chemical composition; how many
atoms of each type of element the crystal contains as well as how those elements are arranged. In addition, 
the environment in which the crystal grows moderately affects
the final product as well.

 

While I found that the structure or the crystal lattice as it is called (how the atoms are arranged within a crystal) may have a mild influence over the larger grouping (or family)

of crystals in each category, the chemical composition has the most direct impact on the vibration of individual crystal types (e.g., all amethysts).

 

It might help to put that another way. 

 

For those of you who may be familiar with astrology, the outer planets of Neptune, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris have a “generational” influence only in a person’s birth
chart and not as much an individual influence. Lattice structure is similar in that it has a “familial” influence (family - meaning larger category), but less influence on the individual crystal types such as Amethyst, 
Tiger’s Eye, and so forth.

 

The lattice structure seems to have the most influence on the physical appearance or
shape of the crystal. For this reason, I tend not to include the lattice structure in 
my descriptions of each type of crystal because, again, it’s just not as energetically influential with regards to the specific types of crystals.

 

The fact that crystals have an internal lattice structure is the significant factor.

 Color: The proof isn’t just in the visual light spectrum (i.e., that colors vibrate at certain frequencies). We have found through additional studies on the topic that the vibration

of various colors can have a significant effect on people. In fact, these studies proved

the point so well that color has strongly influenced industries such as interior design, fashion, marketing, and even nutrition. Psychologists have used color in treating psychological disorders, restaurants use colors to entice people to feel hungry and eat,

and energy healers often use color in their particular therapies as well. 

 

I could go on, but I think it’s safe to say that humans believe in the principle of color vibration!

So, let's bring it all together.  One of the physical properties that results from the chemical makeup of a crystal is the color.  While there are crystals that come in a variety of hues,
most crystals can be 
identified almost immediately because of their color and sometimes because of the visual effect of light and the color, such as chatoyancy (cat’s eye effect), translucency, color changing, etc.

 

What many crystal workers have learned over the years (including me) is that color is a
pretty darn reliable indicator of a crystal’s meaning (vibration).  It makes sense since color
is a direct result 
of a crystal’s specific chemical composition (like a human’s physical appearance is due to its specific DNA).

 

As I stated earlier on, the fact that certain crystals come in different colors and thus have somewhat different natures, points to the validity of using color as an indicator of meaning.

We see this same color = meaning association when speaking about the chakras, which brings us to the focus of this page.

 

Crystal to Chakra Connections: You will see that the crystal to chakra connections are

mostly based on color.  Again, this is based on the science of vibration (chemical composition and color), and not just because it is “convenient”.

 

Note:  The crystals listed for each chakra are not the only crystals that would work with

that chakra. I'm simply listing a few of the more common ones as well as the ones that are

fairly easily to acquire. I tend to avoid most jewelry grade crystals (like sapphires,

emeralds, etc.) if for no other reason than their size and price (small and expensive)
although there
are a few exceptions. I also try to avoid anything that has been

heat-treated, bonded (a.k.a. aura stones) or most aggregates (mixes of various minerals) again, with some exceptions.

 

I’ll begin with the Earth Star Chakra associations and work up from there.   

I’ll list the crystals from my recommendations first (from the Crystals A – Z page) in color

and then I’ll identify others that would also work for each chakra.

with flecks or fire within them.  Also, dark grey and black stones with some kind of
chatoyant or other light-altering effect.

are not as effective when used with the Earth Star Chakra.
