For centuries, people have adorned themselves with red gemstones. Red has had strong symbolic associations with love, passion, fire, and blood, but true red colors are rare in the world of gems. Red stones, as well as black, are also associated with the root chakra, and are powerful for root chakra healing.
Gemologists assess color by considering hue, tone, and saturation. Gemstones often have a secondary hue in addition to a primary hue. In red gemstones, the most common secondary hues are purple and orange. Connoisseurs consider a pure red or red with just a hint of purple to be the top quality in red gems. As the hue moves further from this ideal, value drops.
