Chakras are the transformers of light that are a part of the anatomy of the human energy system. They are integral in keeping balance of the physical, mental and spiritual bodies and the fields around them. There are seven major chakras, and over 20 minor ones. Stones and crystals resonate frequencies that can align with the chakras and potentially supporting the balancing of them. Below is a basic list and function of each of the major seven and the colors that align with them. Stones can be chosen on the color for a particular chakra or the feel, or the visual attractiveness or the innate knowing which is right for you. For many stones provide comfort and balance when aligned with the chakra system.
