How do color and healing properties relate to gemstones?

What is the relationship between the gemstone properties of energy and healing and the actual color?
You may or may not believe there is a relationship at all,  or perhaps you think that it is only a preference for color that draws one to the particular gemstone or jewel.
Here are some interesting ideas on this subject:
Edgar Cayce was was a famous American psychic healer and was called “The Sleeping Prophet” because he would go into a trance and speak in depth on many subjects like medicine and “vibrational healing” .
He said in trance”…just as there is an aura when a string is vibrated- the tone is produced by the vibration. In the body, the tone is given off rather in the higher vibration, or the color. Hence this is a physical condition that exists with each physical body.”
He also said ” We know that all force was created by vibration. We know that all vibration becomes electrical in it’s action and it’s effect. That is, it enlivens, brings greater vibration, or being under vibration it becomes deadened or destructive to one or the other of the vibrations thus met.”
What does this mean? It means that we are all made up of vibration atoms and photons, and we all have a vibratory rate that is subject to outside influences.
I think that since color is a vibratory rate of a short or long wave-length it follows that things of color influence us in some way.
Metals, gems, and stones each have a unique properties and unique vibrations about them. The idea is to find the one that can help you with what you need to transform.
Gemstone healing works in this manner: you bring the stone, or metal, or gem in to your own subtle energy system.
When you do that, because your body is very responsive, your energy system will begin to emulate or imitate the vibrations being given off by the item you work with.
When you change the vibrations, you change everything. Any condition, whether emotional or physical, has to change when you change your vibration.
Here are three very common gemstones and their various healing properties according to Edgar Cayce and Shelly Kaehr,PH.D,  who compiled a book on Cayce’s information on gemstones called “Edgar Cayce’s Guide to Gemstones, Minerals, Metals, and More”
Garnet: Garnet refers to the entire family of minerals that have an aluminum silicate base.They vary in color ranging from red to green , depending on the mineral base.
Since the Middle Ages, garnet has been known for curing illnesses of the blood and infections.The red color represents passion, not only between lovers, but passion for life and all of your endeavors. If given as a gift, the garnet represents commitment to the relationship, and ensures long lasting love and fidelity.
Emerald: The oldest known mines for emeralds come from Cleopatra’s mines in southern Egypt. Emeralds have captivated people for thousands of years–they were one of the precious stones used in the Taj Mahal.The emerald is not as commonly found as one would think, and perhaps it’s mystical allure is partly because of it’s rarity. It is one of the most powerful for physical healing.
Any green stone provides healing for the body, but the emerald is especially so because it carries the properties of the green ray, which opens the heart center.
If your heart has been broken in the past, it will ease you into healing so that you can love again.
It can be utilized to help with heart ailments such as congestive heart failure and restricted arteries. Green stones are also utilized for any painful conditions, such as arthritis and cancer.
Sapphire: This gem is a member of the corundum family of minerals. Blue is the color most often associated with sapphires, but it is also found in colors like yellow, white, green, pink and brown.
The blue, which is the most popular kind, is the carrier of the blue ray, which activates the throat–for expression, and provides peace and tranquility for the planet. It assists people in relieving anger, depression, hopelessness, and deep feelings of sorrow and guilt.
Sapphires can be utilized in self healing to calm nerves and bring restful deep sleep.
There is much more to be said about these healing properties of gemstones. I hope you have found this bit of information interesting and perhaps even useful.
I will continue this discussion on color further with how colors interact with one’s personality.
Thanks for reading this!
All the best!
