Red is the color of passion, energy, and life. It motivates. It is a very strong color—the color of fire and blood. It is emotionally intense and affects humans by raising their blood pressure and speeding up their metabolism.
Red is a call to action, a battle cry, and a sign of warning. It excites us, raises our enthusiasm, and gives us energy. Red is the natural birthstone of those born in mid-autumn (October 22–November 20).
Red crystals are used when the situation needs passion: active, involved, energetic action. Red empowers, uplifts, and engulfs. It cures apathy. It gets things done. Red is action and drive.
If you are suffering from a lack of power, listlessness, or a low emotional state, you need more red. Like the scarlet ray, the red ray brings us a self-confidence built on fearlessness. When the need is for action without hesitation or self-doubt, use a crystal with a fiery ray of bright red.

In lighter shades of red (usually with some light orange mixed in), like pink, the strong passion and power are toned down to subtler, feminine aspects. This is the color ray of determination, commitment, and caring.
Simply, pink is love. Also, pink is a soothing color, useful to calm feelings of anger or resentment. Pink is a comfort color that can aid efforts to meditate.
Pink is the color of new love, new romance, and new relationships. It is particularly powerful in Seeker and Attractor crystals. For finding a girlfriend or boyfriend, or even a mate, a pink Seekers such as pink sapphire, rose quartz, cinnabar, and morganite will be excellent.

In darker shades, red is tinted with brown or black. Here the power of the color ray is not muted but mixed with darker and more earthy, powerful overtones of brown or the power and mystery of black.
Dark red stones are crystals of very hard, durable energy and quiet passion. Strong, deep feelings call for a strong, deep-red crystal. Dark red is a masculine color.
Dark red rays of influence have a wide variety of uses. The dark red stones are particularly useful for increasing devotion, and seeing the seriousness of life.
They are also the Harvest Stones, bringing the power of the season to our efforts to reap the rewards of our productive ventures. They have a power similar to the light scarlet stones in their ability to amplify our tenacity and dedication, particularly in physical efforts.
