About Red Crystals

Red is a color that represents passion, fire, energy, anger, and excitement. The crystals that hold the red hue within them are not much different.

Red crystals are the perfect stone when you need passion as well as active, involved, and energetic action. If you are feeling apathetic, listless, or powerless, red is a color you need more of in your life.

Red crystals can help bring us self-confidence, fearlessness, and the courage to tackle our problems. They can help us get things done as they can fill us with determination, drive, motivation, and the desire for more action.

Do you need more self-worth, strength, courage, energy, and willpower? Then you need a red crystal.

Red Crystals for Chakra Healing

Red crystals are best when looking to clear, heal, or restore balance to the Root Chakra. The benefits of just a few minutes a day with one of these crystals resting between the legs for 5-10 minutes can be substantial. You can also use aromatherapy to help balance the Root Chakra.

The Root Chakra is the first chakra also sometimes known as the Base Chakra, the red chakra, or Muladhara. It is located at the base of the spine and controls the kinesthetic energy for feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical energy and spiritual energy for the body.

When the Root Chakra is physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy, feeling down, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation.

Using Red Crystals in Feng Shui

Red crystals bring us Fire Energy in Feng Shui. As such, they are best used in high-energy and high-activity areas. Fire Energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination, and activity. Use the red hues of crystals to bring the sun’s power and the fire element’s energy to your life and home. Charge up a space with these crystals. Spring into action with their energy.

Fire Energy is traditionally associated with the south area of a home or room also known as the Fame and Reputation area. Use its energy to give your life the boost it needs to enhance your standing in the community and within your family.

Red Crystals as Natural Birthstones

The natural color wheel shows the progression of life and color on the planet earth. In contrast to astrological signs and other birthstone lists, the color wheel shows us the color of our birth time on earth. Therefore, it can show us our true, natural birthstone.

If you were born in the time of mid-autumn, from October 22nd to November 20th, your natural birthstone is red. For this reason, you may likely find yourself drawn to red crystals and gemstones. Red crystals may even help you improve your confidence, motivation, energy, and inner strength.
