The Power of Yellow in Crystal and Gemstone Healing

The Power of Yellow in Crystal and Gemstone Healing




Yellow is the color most associated with the sun. Seeing the sun and the color yellow can give us feelings of happiness, joy, vibrancy and a sense of peace with our surroundings. At our most physical level, Yellow is the color associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra or the Manipura Chakra,  which is located in the upper abdomen. A healthy Yellow vibration also gives us our will and personal sense of power and may express itself outwardly as good and healthy control of one’s own life, being in charge of one’s own beliefs and may look like confidence in the eyes of others. It is also associated with mental clarity and intelligence. Ever notice when it rains you may feel like you are in a fog and cannot think?


Missing the Sun or having an out of tune Solar Plexus Chakra can give you feelings of being out of control, confusion, lack of confidence and disassociation with the energy of life. This may express itself physically as worry, panic or anxiety. When this chakra is out of tune the person may feel a little pain in the upper abdomen and have trouble digesting.


Imbalances may show up as:

Indigestion, insomnia, eczema, nervousness, arthritis, and tension. Having too much yellow vibrational frequency in the solar plexus can manifest as a “lack of tolerance” of surroundings or people. (Prejudice) 


The Following Crystals represent the Sun and the Solar Plexus Chakra:


Yellow Obsidian increases strength and stimulates the intellect. It can help organize thoughts and information and is great for building confidence. This stone is an emotional soother. It mentally assists in clearing emotional distress, fear, and anxiety.


Citrine represents the merchant stone. It is very versatile and is used for mental and emotional clarity, problem-solving, memory issues, will power, optimism, confidence, and self-discipline. They are invigorating and positive and increase motivation.


Sunstone is a kiss of sunshine, crystallized. It brings good luck and fortune. Energizes and empowers one’s self. Warms the heart and lifts/rejuvenates the spirit. Sunstone is used for protection, life force, and grounding.


Tiger’s Eye represents the male energy of the sun and its fierceness in power and strength. It encompasses our willpower, helps change anxiety, fear, and obsessiveness into practicality and logic. Has the grounding energy of the earth, but is embellished with a glowing warmth of the sun.


Mookaite is a powerful healing stone that helps to provide stability to one's perspective of life.


Yellow Calcite will help you by relieving emotional fear, depression, negative thoughts, and phobias.




One way to use these stones is to hold them or place them on the solar plexus during 15 - 30+  minutes of relaxation or meditation and having an intention of clearing the Solar Plexus Chakra. Try and take note of the color of the solar plexus chakra in your meditation concentrating on the color, brightness, tone, and vibrancy of the yellow. Repeat the meditation if necessary until you feel the clarity and see the yellow color as healthy and vibrant.



I am a person who functions by the guide of the Sun. I wake and sleep with the sun and certainly can go into a funk on long spells of rain or clouds. Here in Philadelphia that is a reality so keeping these Yellow stones handy is important for all things clarity and happiness. I suggest the Yellow Crystal Pouch for a good starter and then progress to stones included in the Sun and Moon Pouch. Utilize the Solar Plexus Candle to further your meditation!
