Color Code: Gems, Colors, and Their Meaning

Color Code: Gems, Colors, and Their Meaning

Color is power. It impacts the way we feel, think, behave, and interpret the world around us. Think about the process of choosing just the right color to paint a room. Do you want it to project an energetic vibe or be a calming influence? It’s all about the color. Even food sends color messages – eating a plate filled with vibrant colors not only feeds our stomach, but also our senses.


Color carries real energy and can draw different qualities and emotions from us – peace, clarity, comfort, joy, passion. We instinctively turn to certain colors when we want to feel a specific way, and they help us manifest that emotion. It’s the color code.

The color code and color code meanings have been recognized forces for centuries. All across the ancient world – from Greece to China, to India, to Egypt, healers recognized color and its ability to promote different forms of healing and intention. Since then, we have used color to improve our physical environment (for example, an orange room vs. a blue one) and our bodies. 

Color code meanings derive from many sources including nature, the elements, the Indian chakras, parts of the body, and more. Gems and their distinct colors are perfect vehicles for the power of color and its associated energies.
