Black healing crystals evoke grounding and protection. They have a steady relaxing presence that helps us stay calm. The color black also relates to mysteries and shadows, encouraging us to look deep within ourselves and explore truth with unflinching honesty. Black minerals help us to feel safe and strong. They also tend to have a “heavy” energy that can help us to be practical and focus on solutions rather than simply dwelling on problems. Black healing crystals remind us that we are stronger than we think and that we have the power to create a good life for ourselves and others. Colors are perceived on a very deep level which goes far beyond the simple mechanics of seeing. Colors are not simply constructs of mere physics, but are also capable of making us feel emotions. Color theorists and marketing executives have long known that some colors energize, while others radiate a sense of serenity. The colors we surround ourselves with can dramatically affect our thoughts, choices, and general mood. When selecting healing crystals the color itself should be consciously and carefully considered in addition to all the other aspects of the stone.
