Yellow Crystals - Energy

Article

Yellow is the colour of the Sun. It is a cheerful, uplifting colour and is believed to impart energy and courage to its wearer. It is also often linked with enlightenment, which is why Buddhists and Hindus wear yellow robes.

The amber crystal is a natural resin from an extinct form of pine that was submerged under the sea in the Neolithic Age. Some of the beliefs regarding how amber was formed include that it was fossilised tears of Indian birds, and congealed rays of the setting Sun, found on the seashore. In China, amber was known as the 'Soul of the Tiger', and in Rome amber was given to gladiators for courage.

As yellow crystals share their colour with the Sun, they are used in crystal healing for those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Yellow jasper is a crystal that is particularly good for warding off depression.
