Orange is an equal mix of red and yellow, two of the primary colours, and as such it combines the energising qualities of red with the focusing qualities of yellow. Orange is associated with creativity, prosperity and developing self-esteem, being the colour attributed to Mercury, the god of information and communication.
Flow of energy
Orange is a colour for dealing with ebb and flow, or their absence: artistic skills and creative inspiration are expressions of these slows; blocks and traumas indicate their absence. You can use orange crystals to stimulate the Sacral Chakra and remove any energy blockages in this area. The vibrant energy of orange also makes it a good colour for pregnant women, as it acts particularly on the womb and reproductive organs.
