choosing gemstone by color
A certain color can bring back memories of the happiest moments of your
life. It may also remind you about past sorrow, suffering, and lost love. So
many emotions can be aroused in our consciousness by colors. Our sensitivity
depends on colors themselves, their hue, saturation and brightness, as well
as our own preferences, temperament and health.
We tend to avoid some colors instinctively, as they seem to bring about
discomfort and anxiety. There are other colors, those we would rather call
friendly - we would like to see them around us more often - in clothes,
jewellery, and house interiors.
Psychologists may use a person's favourite color as a key to his character,
mindset, and even to his physical health. This color preference is a result
of established color associations and may also depend on local traditions,
personal temperament, sex and family history. It is also believed by some
that color preferences are biologically ingrained or could be related to

Fans of white are excitable, have well-developed imagination, and often
tend to be religious. They yearn for peace and calm, but can carry opposing
traits of being close and far - empathy and disengagement. They are
dreamers, ready to reach up to the stars, or down to the drugs.
“Whites” have a knack for paranormal abilities. They combine the strength of
the Lion with the caution of the Snake. Jealousy and similar vices are their
opposites. To achieve inner calm and balance they should choose rather large
gems of green hue - Amazonite in particular.
To reinforce their natural traits, Whites may choose jewelry with white gems
(Pearls, white Onyx,
Opal). To improve their mood, they should select gems
with bright colors, depending on their magic and healing properties.
Fans of red are passionate leaders. Their ability to lead may be hindered
by the strength of their emotions and ambitions. They are not prone to
regrets. They like life and tend to get what they wish. Red is a color of
animal passion. Reds may engage in hunting, sports, and racing. They may be
as virtuous as saints, or as vicious as the bloodiest tyrants. Reds are multipolar and multifaceted, explosive but calming down fast. To strengthen
such qualities, jewelry with rather small red gems is recommended.
