Crystal Blessings – Revisited
It is always such a joy when I hear how crystals have changed people’s lives. When Joginder, who runs the Tree of Life in Birmingham, was introducing me last year he told the story of how he’d been in despair, feeling very lonely and finding it impossible to meet a partner who was on the...
Orange stones range from pale to vivid and intense, and from yellowish to reddish-brown. Many coming in a variety of intensity of colour or in colour combinations (especially the Jaspers). Orange stones are extremely energising and are for the most part for short term use as they can overstimulate. They can also be used for recharging your other crystals. Details of properties are in the crystal directory on the website or in ‘new crystals’.
Two sides of the same Carnelian c. Judy Hall
Orange Carnelian can vary from light yellowish-orange to a deeper reddish shade. It has the typical Carnelian tactile smoothness, very dense and opaque and yet translucent when held to the light. Dendritic threads often run through it along with denser patches of colour.
Even when polished, Calcite has a slightly waxy feel to it and is translucent. The orange version has a very intense colour and instantly energises in a controlled fashion when held.
Slightly crystalline, typically ribbed with a long crystal that may be clustered with or crossed by others. Typically sold as one long crystal. May have mica attached.

Sunstone has an unmistakable iridescence to it. Turn it so that it catches the light. The orange can vary from light to intense.
The typical iridescent orange of Sunstone is attached to deep blue Iolite, sometimes with white matrix. A very powerful third eye opener.
Fabulous crystal, turn it in the light to see the ‘rainbow lattice effect’ shine out of the yellowish-orange Sunstone.
A very intense orange-red or orange-brown Quartz, often showing phantoms within or etchings on the sides. Frequently densely coated on the points. Best identified by the jolt of energy that hits you when you touch it.
A beautiful, gentle yet energetic Quartz, fairly evenly distributed colour throughout the whole crystal.
A slightly deeper and richer coloured, leaning towards apricot, Quartz.
Alchemicalised with gold, iron oxide and copper onto clear Quartz, Tangerine Aura Quartz has a slight iridescence to it. It can be identified by the energetic effect when held to the third eye.
Strawberries and cream! A Lemurian dipped in sugar coating. A natural, gritty, sandy coating over a deep red core.
Typical Lemurian ‘ladder’ markings up the side. Fairly evenly distributed colour throughout the crystal. Identified by the energetic effect – instant trip around the universe. For those of you who remember the music of Tangerine Dream, it’s exactly the same hallucinogenic effect.
A new Lemurian just reaching the market. The orange-yellow colour is intense in patches. Often associated with a reddish coating to the tips. Almost like a Strawberry Lemurian in reverse.
A densely crystalline, translucent to opaque crystal, often found on a matrix. The perfect stone for settling new vibrations into the physical body.
Strictly speaking an organic compound rather than a crystal, Amber has nevertheless been accepted as a crystal for thousands of years. It is translucent to transparent when held to the light and will display remnants of insects and tree matter. Rubbed on silk or wool it gives off an electrostatic charge. True Amber floats in salty water (see the entry on the website re distinguishing true Amber from plastic).
Small, brownish orange crystals on a matrix. Some may be squarish or bladed.
More red than orange, this tiny, ribbed, needle-like stone is usually found on a matrix.
Translucent to transparent, long crystal. Highly energetic. Rarely entirely natural, this crystal is formed in smelting chimneys and reflects the fiery processes that created it.
Usually available in clusters with larger crystals protruding from the tiny drusier crystals clustered on the matrix.

Best identified by the seller.
There really is nothing else like the stunning bands of colour that comprise a Bumble Bee Jasper. Raw or polished, you cannot mistake it.
Bright orange Citrine is heat treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz and does not occur naturally.
The crystal pictured is natural Zircon, it is often manmade. Natural is occasionally available (I bought mine at a mineral fair) and is translucent as shown.
Banded within a matrix, this stone has been tumbled. Raw Natrolite is translucent to opaque and ribbed.
A bright and colouorful Jasper found in many colours. Mookaite tends to be ‘blotchy’ with swirls of colour.
Polychrome Jasper tends to have more distinct banding than Mookaite.
Small, transparent and ribbed in its raw form, Imperial Topaz is a yellowish-orange that can veer towards brownish.
