Orange is not a very common color in gemstones, though a vivid orange stone makes stunning jewelry. Orange stones & crystals correspond to the second chakra, sexual energy, and vitality. They each have different meanings, but many are used to increase creativity, support your emotional health, and feel more aliveness and vitality.
Spessartite garnet is considered the finest of the orange gems, but a number of other gems can be found in shades of orange, including sapphire, spinel, imperial topaz, tourmaline, citrine and mexican fire opal. Orange gems range in color from the pure and vivid orange of mandarin garnet and some orange sapphires to the red-orange and yellow-orange of Mexican opal, to the golden-orange of tourmaline and the pink-orange of padparadscha sapphire and rhodochrosite.
